New Hats

I don't have a lot to share today, but I just had to show you the two new hats I made for Blake. They are both made out of Cascade 220 Superwash (which I am not liking for the boys' Harry Potter sweaters on a 7, but is perfect on a 6 for these hats!). I think they are pretty darn cute!

Tiffany picked these colors out, so I had fun playing with them to make a couple of cozy and super cool hats for that little dude.
I also finished my Nutkin socks, but I am incapable of taking good pictures of socks. I need one of those fake mannequin feet, which would be weird, but I can't think of a better way to take a detailed picture of a sock without showing you my own leg. And no one wants to see that. That, and I'm frustrated with the finished socks. I hate the toes. They are very uncomfortable and I'm thinking it's because I decreased too much and did it on two circular needles. And I had to add a new ball of yarn and it ended up on the ball of the foot which is very uncomfortable. This will bug me until the end of time, because that is about how long it took me to make those socks in the first place, so I think I'm going to re-knit the toes. As soon as I am able to free up one of my two sets of size 1 double points.

I know you don't want to hear about the laundry, or the vacuuming, or my clean playroom, or the fact that I had a hotdog for dinner, but I will tell you that my husband has a job interview tomorrow morning that I am very nervous about because it could be so perfect for him. So say a little prayer for Mike at 10:30 if you're thinking about it.

And, to take my mind off of the impending interview, Mike and I will watch all 4 hours of the new 24 while I drink a second glass of wine and knit some mittens. I bet Jack Bauer would be a great knitter.
