Well, what a month - WHEW!! Thanksgiving was insane, but glorious. We attempted gingerbread houses which was a blast and good for a laugh (thanks to K and her flop of a house - I made it and J helped her (his hands in pic) so don't blame the kid!).
I managed to finish one red snake. (More info on the scarf here)
And one gold & black hat.
PATTERN: Tychus, the short-row beanie from Knitty (adapted)
YARN: Lion Brand Wool-Ease in the gold and the black (I don't remember the real names)
NEEDLES: #6 straight aluminum needles
LOVED: Okay, I simply LOVED making this pattern. I can't wait to do another one (already have a request for "BYU colors" ... I also have to admit that it was kind of fun to use straight aluminums again for the first time in awhile. Also, I LOVE this yarn. I can't get enough of it.
HATED: Hmmm... I really hated nothing. Gauge was a little tricky cause I sized it down for a child. I doubled the yarn as per the pattern, but I went down to #6 needles and only did three patterns instead of five (and then stitched the top so it wasn't as "cone-shaped").
I haven't finished the Weasley ("F" Sweater below). I'm shooting for Christmas.
It is snowing here and I say, "let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!!!" Snow is always allowed between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Then it should be gone. Until next year. Seriously.
The count down is on to Disneyland. EIGHTEEN DAYS!!!! I can't wait. Splash Mountain, here I come!!!! I would live at Disneyland if they would let me. They won't. I've asked.
