2 hats and a cowl

Simple Pleasures hat in blue Cascade 220 and the top, carries a strand of Kidsilk haze in a light blue, with the strand of cascade. A tad too big, but really like it. A cabled cowl in Malabrigo Marine - so soft. A cabled pink balaclava for those really cold feeding horses times, in Cascade 220 pink. A few mistakes on that one. Was watching the Tudors and missed cabling 2 spots in a row. Went too far before noticing, to tink back. Am working on a gorgeous cowl now and almost 2/3rds through.

Stash 2010

I am putting together a stash list, by location. I guess it's the inventory training kicking in. I'm working on a very pink cabled balaclava. I have a $10 fleece one, I'm wearing under a cheap bomber hat, for freeding horses right now. Really needed as the highs are in the single digits and the wind chill is killer. I don't know how I did it, but I missed cabling 2 sections. Really, I do know. The Tudors, season 3. Anyway, it's in the neck section so I doubt if anyone will know but me. Bugs me, though. Casting on with Marine blue Malabrigo for a simple cabled cowl today. I have to make a Felicity, in Vanna's Choice taupe for my sister, and a replacement cables & eyelet hat in charcoal grey cascade 220 for Timbers, as she lost hers. And Mom's reading mitts. Go, knitting, go.

New Year's Day 2010

Sean isn't going to wear this hat, I bet. It's the one I originally knit for Kenny - just like Dad's. Navy Cascade 220 & some of the leftover Kudo. Mels' Thermis is black Cascade 220 and looks very classy. The Dashings are Rowan DK silk wool and feel fabulous. She left them on most of the time she was here. She's really thin, I think, and feels cold constantly. She wore her xmas leopard Snuggie alot. She made most of the Apple cream pie, while I mashed potatos and made the burnt butter mac & cheese. They left pretty early, and didn't eat any pie. Poor them. It was hot & tasty.
