I made a hat the other day! I was using these huge needles and two strands of yarn together, so it was such a quick knit. Only took me a couple hours.

I had been wanting to make a hat with earflaps in these colors for such a long time, you don't even know. And the pointy top makes it rock more.
I might write up a pattern, someone asked me to on Craftster. How do you get one of those galleries of patterns on one of these blogs? Grr, I don't like coding too much.

I'm making my first toe-up socks. I just finished turning the heel on one today. Short rows are exciting!

The baby sweater is going splendidly as well... if not a little boring. I already finished all the lace on the front, so those couple inches of plain seed stitch are going to kill me. I think I should just suck it up and read a short story while I do it, because that will make it go so much faster. I don't know why I'm such a technique snob now. I'm not even as good as I make myself seem by complaining about how boring a few inches of k1p1 will be. I just tackle new things because I'm not afraid of them. Like, my one friend? She won't learn how to purl because she's afraid of it. She thinks it's going to be really hard and confusing. But when it comes to knitting techniques, you can't let things intimidate you. You just have to do it.
Sillies. Well, that's my input for the day.
I just realized how horrendous my grammar has been throughout this entire post. Sorry, I'm too lazy to change it.
