Knitting This Week

8:15 AM

It's Wednesday again and that means it is time for the weekly yarn along.  I'm joining with Ginny and everyone to share yarn and books!  Ever since B. shared his Colorado hat on Facebook, I've had an assembly line going.  I've had orders for nine hats and seven of them are paying for their hats!!

I have decided to crochet several of the hats and the Colorado emblems... each hat takes a couple of hours... and then I weave in the ends and sew on the emblems.  I have yet to line these hats.  Last night I lined one of them because it is a gift to a friend who lets us stay at his place when we go skiing.  

So far I have used B's head to measure for the fleece liners.  I have to figure an easy way to measure and cut the liners.  I can visualize how I want them,  but I have a hard time with the creases/seams in the top to make it fit into the curve of the hat.  B's hat was pretty easy because he was sitting next to me on the couch while I worked on his hat, but I can't continue to use his head especially for the smaller hats!

I am in between books at the moment.  I just finished reading The Kept by James Scott which was OK.  It took place in the late 1800's in the winter in upstate New York.  The main character, Elspeth, is a midwife and she returns home after several months working away to find her family has all been murdered.  Except for her youngest son who was hiding in the barn.  I thought the beginning of the book a tad disturbing, but the story was enough to keep my attention.  However I thought it a weird book.  I've picked up The Rescue by Anita Shreve, but I haven't started it yet.  

Happy Yarn Along Wednesday!
