Sunday Morning Knit Wit

I don't have a stitch for you today and probably won't until October.

Sometimes life gets in the way of what you love to do and I do believe it is my turn for awhile.  Daryl is on the mends from a foot injury that required surgery and for the next 4 weeks he is totally non-weight bearing. Those of you know that he is a man who rarely sits still, so this is absolutely killing him, but we are looking forward to the future when it will be completely healed and life gets back to normal.

I have been able to squeeze in a few projects here and there and I've expanded my work to include hats.  I've knit hats before, but I was never all that much into them.  I typically don't wear one so hats were not on my top knit list.  But I've been playing around and I think I've found my newest craze!  The are super fun to knit and really don't take all that long to make and you don't need all that much yarn.

Here is a hat that I just listed on etsy this morning.  It is knit with lambswool and is super soft.  The rim is a braided cable and the top is pixie-like beanie.  I love how the cabled edge forms scallops to surround your face.  

Next weekend I will have a booth at the Boonville Woodsman's Field Days both on Saturday and Sunday.  If you are in the area, please stop by and say hello!  Our little town will be hopping and there is plenty to do!

So until next time - keep your needles clicking!
