Occasional forward progress

I finally finished the slinky hat I posted the other day. It looks pretty awesome. I plan on taking pictures once I am done working today so the ravelry page for the pattern is complete. I'm pretty gratified by the response so far: 68 loves, 17 queues, and 1 other project. The people at the yarn store where I purchased the yarn (bliss yarns in Brentwood, Tennessee) liked it as well. They'll be getting more of the Zauberball in shortly, and I plan on buying a skein that is shaded black, white, and gray so I'll have a hat to go with my coat. I may buy an additional skein so I can have matching wristwarmers. We'll see.

Now that I've finished up the Slinky Hat, I am working on a pattern for a Kitteh Hat that I made my junior year of college, which was three and a half years ago. I no longer have the original, but my ravatar is a photo of me wearing it. I've gotten so many requests for the pattern that I've decided to re-crochet one and write it up. It's coming along fairly smoothly, if a little slowly. I'm so out of practice when it comes to crochet it's pathetic, and I can't do it nearly as quickly as I used to. I think I'm maybe 40% done. I've finished the crown increases and half of the ears, so it's only a matter of making it long enough.

I'd like to finish it today, but I'm not sure if that'll be feasible. I have a million errands to run, pictures to take of the other hat, and I also have a shipping deadline for the LSG traveling scarves tomorrow morning (and I haven't even started one of them. At least the other is done). Bah. Once again, I overcommit myself.

  4. Kitteh Hat will be great! I wish I could do something like that! I use dissertation writing service and I have plenty of free time, so I could learn something to make at least a scarf)))
