It seemed like the thing to do

So, I didn't go string beads for the second sock. I made a hat, instead. Voila:


The yarn is Noro Transitions, color #19. The pattern? Basically, measure your head, multiply by your gauge, cast on about an inch worth of stitches less than your head circumference, knit about 2", increase that inch worth of stitches, knit until the hat is tall enough (leave the edge rolled), then do the top decreases.

I frogged another hat, same pattern, same yarn, different color (#5):

It looks better in the skein than it does as a hat.

I wore my new hat this morning to drive my son to school. It was 12 degrees (F) out there.

Valentine flowers from my guys (that would be my husband and my son):


I did string the beads for the second Winter's Eve sock last night, and I cast on and knit the first several rounds of the sock this morning, then got distracted and started a scarf. Why? It just seemed like the thing to do.

Gorgeous hat. I love just throwing a hat pattern (or sock) together. Makes me feel like I really know what I'm doing:) As for the beaded sock, it will wait until the mood strikes you. If I don't have at least three projects going,I get bored. I love your flowers. Just what's needed in the bleak cold winter we're having right now (thank God you have power!)
