And I'm Knitting

but mostly I'm working, and going to meetings, and hanging out with the boys when the Collar has a meeting.  I haven't managed to go to knit group (Game Boy now has youth group, and the Collar goes too), so Wiz and I are on our own then.  Maybe next year?

Currently I'm knitting several things:

Sitcom Chic (I'm working on sleeve number one, but haven't knit on it for awhile because I'm doing this instead:
 This is monkey mitt #1 for Wiz's piano teacher.  I have begun the second one, and probably will get to the thumb gusset today.   After that, I'm knitting hats and mittens for her daughters.

I am knitting this year's ornaments.  Hats!  Lots, and lots of hats.  Above are 15 hats and I'll make at least 30.  They are pretty fast knits, but I'm sure I'll be tired of them soon.  They are very cute so far, and I'll still have lots and lots and lots of sock yarn left over.  I don't know what I'll do when I run out of left over sock yarn bits.  (Actually, can that ever happen?)

Those hat ornaments are so cute! Where did you find the pattern?

I made it up. I'm glad that you like it!

Kate's Ornament Hats:

Use size 1 dpns. (Gauge is unimportant.)

Cast on 28 stitches. Divide between four dpns. Join in round, being careful not to twist.

Purl 1 round, knit 1 round, purl one round.

Knit 6 rounds.

On next round, knit the last two stitches on each needle together. Continue this pattern until there is one stitch left on each needle (4 stitches).

Cut yarn. Thread yarn through each each stitch to bind off. Weave in the end, leaving a loop to hang the hat. Weave in the end at the hat brim.

Really, really easy.
