i just finished a hat that i am sooooooooo proud of! i think it looks so good and i love the colors and it's the first time i have ever succeeded in doing fair isle (after about 3 other attempts)
i knit it for a guy at work who threw a quick "will you make me a hat" one day at work in front of a lot of people and well, i blurted out yes and...well, too late to take it back...grrrr....
but the hat turned out so pretty i dont mind. i gave it to him yesterday and he really loved it. he offered to pay for the yarn and i said not to worry about it. but after work i couldnt start my car because i had left the lights on so i called the ICU to have Sam come down and jump it off so i told him he had paid for his hat after all in services rendered lol ; )
and guess what? Christophe wants one almost just like it - he wants his longer of course - to cover the ears. sam had only wanted a skull cap.
guess i know what i'll be knitting on th eairplane ;)
i also finished the shawl for christophe's aunt.
i'm more or less happy about it
christophe helped me block it. i couldnt believe that! he's really finally opening up to my knitting! asking me to knit for his aunt, helping me pick out yarn and pattern for it, wanting me to knit him a hat, helping with blocking! cant believe it!!!!
we put up the tree last night. the kids were so excited! they have been begging me ever since the beginning of the week since we do it the weekend after thanksgiving.
Come back next week for hopefully a big announcement (if i get the courage up to talk to my boss).
