So I finished my hat! Only took a couple of days. I'm pleased with it, it looks very similar to my favourite and tired purple hat. I knit the hat out of a massive ball of wool, which was labeled "The One Pounder". I've already knit a large scarf and hat out of it, and it doesn't even look like I've made a dent in it. Now I need to make more mustard coloured winter accessories. Specifically mittens. One of the girls at work is knitting mittens and she gave me a copy of the pattern. It is a waffle pattern, and my sister actually made the same mitts last winter. They were cute.
Also, I am currently obsessed with eating cottage cheese and grape/cherry/small tomatoes. FYI. Also I borrowed a bunch of fun stamps and ink pads from the studio at work today and made a few dozen cards (for any occasion). Fun! I will never have to buy another card again. Also I'm uber excited cause I was able to fit a textiles class into my schedule!
