Addicted to Knitting

being pampered

Posted on: December 1, 2007

My  sweet female in laws gave me a pedicure and a manicure for my birthday. Oh what a nice gift. My toes look fabulous.  One of   God’s gifts to me was  nice feet.  I love to have my toenails painted and pretty.  My fingernails are short and all different lengths but they now sport a very light gold sparkle. I had  an hour  while she did my feet to  KNIT!  I worked on the Snowball hat  from IK Fall issue. I used Knitpicks  highland Peruvian wool in the colorway cloud. Its one that my dd fell in  love with. She is suddenly into pompom’s . Egads I hate making them . What a lot of work and mess. Maybe Santa will bring me a pompom maker. Of course then Rachey would no longer like pompoms.

The exciting thing is that she has no idea I knit it. The green cable head band?  She noticed the yarn was gone! I  promptly rearranged all my stash. I have done that a couple of times this week.  Geesh it’s hard to be sneaky in this house!  Since she is gone all day today I cast on for the Fake Isle Hat. Thanks for that Beth! My daughter was in love with the one you made.  I am going to use that Noro  I bought  a few months ago. I am already wondering why I cast it on when I am short on time. Hat envy I suppose. Beth makes lovely hats and her stitches are so nice. Thanks Beth for the donation!

What a sweet face! The hat is beautiful, and I can’t wait to see your Fake Fair Isle. I love that pattern!

What a cute hat that is! I think I’ll have to cast on for that one soon. And thanks for your kind words. I’m looking forward to seeing your Fake Isle hat!
