I made a hat! My first hat I ever made! And the first hat I have worn in years, actually. I usually just pull a scarf up over my head, but I look a wee bit crazy. The pattern in Shroom by Lee Wood Juvan. The yarn is Berroco Peruvia. It's just the right amount of slouchy to fit my pony tail under.
|I look CRAAAAZZEEEEE!! (and pale...)|
The embarrassing thing? I bought the yarn Friday night after work and finished it before I went to bed. Meaning that I did NOTHING Friday night other than knitting and watching Brothers and Sister. Blah.
I guess I also blocked a couple of things, including reblocking the Travelling woman shawl I made in September.
|My dad got be blocking wires which makes blocking lace A MILLION times easier.|
From last weekend, I should let you know that I got to go to the White House Holiday Open House. There were trees:
A shrine to Bo the dog:
And cool handmade trees and wreaths:
|See?!?! That tree is made of newspaper!!|
|Sneaky Carolers...hiding behind the tree...|
A 350 pound ginger bread house (that I failed to get a picture of...sigh...) and Truman, hiding in a stair well (I think I take a picture of him every time I go on a White House tour):
