Green Hats and Black Ponchos
Monday, January 22, 2007
So Get Stitchy is having a Green Hat Along. Essentially people sign up and on February 1st they start knitting their hat. People take pictures of their WIPS and on St. Patty's day or march you have to post a picture of yourself in your new hat. It's a cute idea and a reason for me to buy more yarn to be honest. -=giggle=- I found the pattern I am going to use, it's called a monk hat and I found it while randomly roaming the internet at work. Anyways, here are the yarns I just ordered from Knitpicks. I figure the multi colored yarn will be the main part and the solid color will be the brim. I'll figure it out as I go along though.

I started on my Poncho and here is a link to the site with the pattern. I am lazy and unless I have to I really don't feel like typing all this out. Lion Brand Homespun Poncho.
It's knitting up pretty quickly actually. I also loooovee the feeling of Homespun so all is well. Tomorrow I think I am going to go and buy my bamboo needles for the shawl. We'll see.

Non-Knitting related. Work was busy and tomorrow will be even busier. I have an instructional speech due on Thursday. I finally finished my Spanish homework. Tomorrow I need to hang out with a friend of mine who is moving back to Jersey. Wednesday I have a dentist appointment. Friday is Evil Campaign Day. Saturday, maybe a moment to relax. Nope now that I think of it I have Enterlac class I have to call about. Sunday I think is family day at Grim (my boyfriend's house)

Busy Busy Busy.
