Sure you can have 'em
Meet Am_Hat#2. She is a 5 hour knit, and the results are pretty damn good if I may say so. I was knitting away happily when the following conversation ensued,
Mom: "Your granma would love that. She wears a beanie when she sleeps because the air-conditioning gives her headaches."
Me: "Um well, this was for me, but if granma needs it more than I do, I guess I can make myself another one later."
There you have it. Everyone needs an Amelia Earhart Hat. This one was made with just one ball of Baruffa Maratona (121 yds), with sz 7 needles for a snug fit. Wouldn't want the hat to fall off when granma sleeps, ja know.
Next up is a cabled armwarmer, knitted with sz 7 circs using Magic Loop. Pattern by Savannahchik. It's just a sample for my sister's viewing pleasure so she sees what it's like and I'm expecting a decision on color choice soon so she can have them for her birthday present. I'm trying to steer her away from black, gray, and white. That's her closet y'all. No color. Sheesh. And thus, summer gift knitting begins.
