I wasn’t able to go home to my family for Thanksgiving this year – have you seen ticket prices to Alaska recently? highway robbery! – so I spent a quiet couple of days here. Mostly knitting and watching movies, with a side trip to the blood bank to donate platelets.
Been using up lots of stash yarn, come to think of it.
Here’s the first Odessa hat I made, not realizing that when the pattern said it would fit an average-sized head, that didn’t mean me.
Both of the Odessa hats are done sans beads, partly because I’m too lazy to fiddle with beads, and partly because I knit at movie nights in the dark. I can knit without looking at my hands, but somehow I don’t think the beading would work.
I’m also one inch shy of being finished with a Christmas present, but I won’t post the photo here in case the recipient is reading this.
Finally, a Noro Kureyon scarf I started last night while watching movies at a friend’s place:
The pattern I’m using is the Knotted Openwork Scarf, although mine looks quite different because I’m using thicker yarn.
