Finished Hat and Sock Progress

August 18, 2006

I finished another hat. This one turned out wonderful. I am going to mail this to Cordelia. Maybe she won’t read this? I actually did this a week ago or maybe more and hesitated if I should post it on my blog. I have been very lazy with my mailings. Send positive thoughts her way today. šŸ™‚

The hat is crocheted from a pattern about 10 posts before this one, too tired to look right now.Ā  It is in Plymouth Wildflower DK yarn, color green (or whatever fancy name they have for green.)

With the hat is the “dreaded” second sock. It is a jaywalker sock. I am working on this at a snail’s pace.

What have I been doing? Well, since you asked (okay, you really didn’t but humor me…) I have been setting up the new bulletin board Fiber Freaks. I have told you about it, right? It is an online community where knitters AND crocheters can talk about both with each other. We are breaking down the walls here. Knitters and crocheters can socialize. Good stuff!

Actually, it was my discovery at a crochet only board that there were “closet knitters.” They showed there crochet on the bulletin board and their knitting on their blogs. We all know that knitting and crochet have their place and there is a lot of grey (as well as a multitude of other colors) that overlap so it just isn’t all black and white. Okay, you get the point and I am tired and my eyes are blurring…

Tomorrow I am going to go to my yarn activity group with a local club so I should have some progress to show you tomorrow on something! (promise…yeah, yeah…you have heard that before…)

  1. Very cute hat – love the color!


  2. Break down those walls, you go girl! I don’t get the prejudice anyway … can’t we all just get along? My daughter enjoys crocheting more than knitting, I prefer knitting. We both turn out tasteful, high-quality projects that people we give them to love. And we have plenty to talk to each other about.

    Anyway, I like the idea of Fiber Freaks and will check it out.

  5. closet knitters? oh the shame!

    thanks for the compliment on annabelle! sorry the sizing doesn’t work for you! usually i do a bigger range, but since this was work for hire, i only did as asked. i don’t like to leave anyone out!


  6. Love the hat! And I think Fiber Freaks sounds great. I’ll have to check it out!

    I miss my yarn. Need to make time for it again. Maybe I’ll hit Hobby Lobby today and see what I can find!


  7. I don’t get the prejudice either! After all, both involve creating something beautiful with yarn, and the same yarn at that. Oh well, you’re doing a good thing!
