not much knitting going on here
However- I am almost done with the second cute kids hat. I'm on row 21, and there are 11 rows plus ears left. But then there's the finishing. ugh. this hat has got a lot of finishing, this one more so, because instead of carrying the black across the inside of the hat, I used three strands of black, so each "tiger stripe" has 2 ends to sew in.
I had to use acrylic for the orange, and it's just not the same... if it turns out a bit icky feeling after I wash it, then I might just make a third hat, maybe a black bear hat instead of brown. But that's a little cheesy.
I also cast on for my sister's Christmas present. And knit all of 2 rows on it.
Last, but not least- one of my cousins is having a baby... so I'm making a little jacket, bonnet and socks- because blankets take wayyyyy to long, and I've got finals. I can limit the blanket making to my close family and really close friends, right? I feel a little bad, but there's just not enough time right now.
