I’m plugging away (slowly) on my Musselburgh hat. I’ve finished the stripes through Neptune and I plan to start the decreases when I hit Pluto. I may just have a new hat for someone (myself? I don’t know) for Christmas.
I would have probably been done by now but I mistakenly left the hat at work last weekend. I couldn’t go without knitting for 3 days so I actually cast on for my friend Sean’s new pattern, a Santa Hat. Sean knit this a few weeks ago and I asked him if he would kindly write up the pattern and he did. And then shared it on Ravelry and it’s a free download. I’m still working on the brim because I have restarted it twice. Once, because it was two small. And once because, in a rookie move, I left it out on a table in the living room and Fred and George . . . well . . . they had some fun with yarn in the night. It took me 45 minutes to untangle it (it was wrapped around the legs of a dining room chair to add insult to injury) but I prevailed and started over and I’m much more careful about where I leave my knitting now.
I hope your knitting is all forward progress these days!
