Happy New Year to all! Hope you're spending tonight with some of your favorite people and greeting the new decade in your preferred manner. Me? I'm spending it home alone, knitting on the couch and watching DVR'd episodes of Law & Order. And I couldn't be happier about it!
I finished my new hat in time for today's snow and it sure came in handy. It's such a simple thing that it doesn't even deserve "FO status" but there has been so little knitting to share on this blog lately, I figure I've got to take what I can get . . .
Knit with less than 1 skein of Classic Elite Stormy (sadly discontinued, like all CE yarns seem to be within short order), just a simple stockinette hat over 80 stitches. Knit flat and seamed up the back. Quick and dirty and serves its purpose! I took this picture with my iPhone while waiting at the bus stop this morning. The snow was still coming down then but it stopped about an hour later and is already melting all over the place . . . not that I'm complaining, I'll take this anyway over yesterday's freezing temperatures and fierce wind!
Pattern: None, just 80 stitches knit straight for about 6.5", then decrease for the crown
Yarn: 1 skein Classic Elite Stormy
Needles: US size 9
Started: December 17, 2009
Finished: December 31, 2009
And with that last project of 2009, I say BUH-BYE! to a mostly crappy year and welcome 2010 with open arms! Here's to a better decade for each of us, our country, and the world!
