Not just some of them. All of them. Yah, I had quite a few, eh? And I know I'm not the only one who has cleaned my house and then lost things. But how does one lose at least eight packages of double-pointeds? Grr. So here is my Hermione hat, one of the many UFO's that I brought over from 2006. (I know it's an awful picture, but there you are. Pretend you need glasses) I have started decreasing for the crown, but I can't switch to double-pointeds, so I had to go to two circulars. Just as I'm feeling pretty clever about knitting, and how knitters can solve any knitting problem thrown at them, I realize I still have to cable. So the #5 circs I'd been using to cable, since I can't find my DPNs, I'm now using as part of the hat, and I had to find my #4 circs. Then I'm struggling with all the hanging points, and I just had to take a picture. I think the hat will be done today, which will take care of my first UFO and my "make a gift a month"-along. I love this hat. I love the color, and the wool, and the bobbles, and the pattern... That knitting can make one so happy ... *sigh*
Also included is a pic of the hubby, wearing the sweater I made him last year, and the Christmas socks he thought were boughten, because how could I have time to knit socks on the sly? heehee. All I can say is, the bank lady got many updates of the sock, as I knit waiting for her to give me back the banking slips. The pattern was from Charlene Schurch's Sensational Knitted Socks book. My husband also suggested he'd happily wear knitted pants - no, dear, that's not happening. But doesn't that speak well of the comfort of the socks? I need to make him another sweater. He wears this one all the time. What a guy. It makes me feel pretty guilty that I swiped both fortune cookies from last night. However, here are the fortunes that we are "sharing". "Everyone enjoys your radiance," and "You are capable of building a thriving business venture." The people who play my on-line game will understand my concern about the first fortune. I have a character named Radiance, and I'm off to change my account password next. The business venture is a great fortune, as we are starting a business, and going through the maze of incorporating right now. It's not really a maze. It's just something I haven't done before.
Oh, and the final pic? My daughter asked if she could run her DoodleBear through the washer. I looked at it and said, "Why? It looks perfectly clean." "Yeah," she said. "It's the invisible ink kind."
