Aloha. It's usually TGIF for me but today, I'm feelin' more like boo, winter Break is >.< almost done.
Mahalo nui loa for always saying lovely things about my daughters and godson. They are such a big part of my world and bright lights in it.
I am two days behind BTW on reading your blogs. Last night I read some on the iPad which was nice as I got to snuggle up in bed. It's easier on my wrists and eyes than reading on this computer.
Many of you have reviewed your fiberous year. I have never thought to do that and think I'm inspired to do one sometime this weekend. I think it'll be good to reflect upon what was accomplished and what's next for 2013.
This post is prepped one day early as tomorrow we're hosting a playdate. It's more of an informal one where the two girls are being dropped off and I don't have to entertain any adults. But I do have food and snacks to prep as excited young ladies do like to nom, nom, nom.
So here is one item for
A Maroon Slouch:
It's a standard, slouchie beanie. I've mentioned before I was using Cascade Yarns 220 Superwash in Maroon. I just realized I didn't put down what circs I had used on my Ravelry project page - doh! Blame it on the holiday rush. I may have used a 4 for the ribbing and then switched up to a 7.
It's about 10.5" long. The decrease section was inspired by the method Evelyn of Project Stash used in her Child Miranda Hat pattern. Just thought I'd try something different. My numbers came out well and they do change a bit on the last round I was able to do before gathering up the last of the sts.
This will be wrapped up and brought to school next week to Mrs. F.
On a side note: I created my own, generic photo studio today. I stacked two, Sterilite bins on top of one another and positioned our Canon on top. I binder-clipped a large piece of white felt up on the kitchen wall's organizers to make a blank background. It took me 1.5 hours to get a few photos I liked for new profile pictures and for this project. I can't believe how time flew by. Now I understand why a professional, photo shoot takes so long. I used Picasa as usual to edit my pics.
