It feels like a long time since I have finished anything. Just in time for the return of the colder weather, I finished the knitting on a Sockhead Hat. I loved working with this yarn, Peppino, from The Yarns of Rhichard Devrieze. This project (knit with a variegated yarn) also fits the bill for the recent quarterly challenge from the Loopy Ewe. I have given this hat a test run this week when I really didn’t want to bother doing anything with my hair. It was cozy and comfy, I’m just not sure if it’s the right style for me. Maybe I’m not hipster enough. This hat looks super cute on my daughter, so I think I would consider making this hat again for a kid. However, now that’s done, and I’m looking at a rainy, hopefully laid back weekend and I’ll probably get more wear out of it than I think!
Happy May! I have a few more books to keep it interesting this week. I haven’t finished the Agatha Christie book yet, but I was so drawn to the cover of Contagious: Why Things Catch On and it seems interesting so far. I thought I would also share what my kids are reading. We are working our way through Little House in the Big Woods with Lorelai. Nate’s been obsessed with Bear at Work. We have several of the “Bear” books, but this one is his favorite. Project-wise, I’m just about ready to pack up this Giant Cactus. I am it needs two more flowers. I have a few knitting jobs that are gearing up, so I’m also swatching.
I’ve decided to add on a few more WIPs, photo-wise. I do enjoy using Instagram (@nutmegknitter if you’re there!) and am going to try and play along with the “Book-a-Day” and “May-Photo-a-Day” games.
