1) My Yak hat is finished, and it actually fits on a human head. But I put it on a Styrofoam head for this picture because on my actual head you couldn't see the stitch definition. But it does actually fit, which is great news because I usually make my hats a size XXL.
2) I started knitting a new project- finally using up some of the wonderful yarn sent to me in a Tiny Owl Knits swap. Today I had to go to the county to take care of some business and earned myself almost 3 whole hours of knitting time!
3) I bought some yarn.
Anzula Squishy. It really IS squishy. These skeins want desperately to be a Damask.
They had a back room full of $5 yarn as well and I couldn't resist taking home a chunky skein of this Naturally Alpine 14 ply which is reminiscent of Cascade Eco Wool but doesn't smell quite as sheep-y. There's 240 yards of it and I'm not sure WHAT it wants to be...
4) The needles I'm knitting my new shawl on are rosewood needles.
I got them on sale at Joann's for $2.97.
5) The other morning my son pulled my giant rubber maid stash container out from under my bed, rummaged until he found something he liked (it was a red ball of SWTC's Amaizing) and cuddled it saying, "I want to yarn it in the ballwinder!!" Trying to convince him that it was actually already wound into a ball did no good but it was very cute to watch, especially once he decided that he wanted to knit it instead and stabbed it with a pair of 7's for almost 20 minutes.
And you can't convince me that's not awesome.
And that's what's going on over here. Hope you're doing well with a lovely beverage and a lap full of yarn.
