Another meme...

SO I said that I was going to finish up the July Socktopia Socks. I lied. I was way too ito this hat. I really like knitting it, even if it is slow going. I really have to watch what I am doing. Keeping correct tension in two colors is not something that is "natural" in my fingers yet.
I think you can see by the colors why it isn't exactly a hat DH would wear.
He also pointed out that it was obviously a hard hat to work on. I hadn't talked in two hours. haha.

Cool! My list will be a lot shorter than yours, of course.

Are you sending me some sort of link, or do I copy/paste the list into blogger and edit it?


anphoe said...

nice hat!! what yarns are they?

Thanks for tagging me, I will do it as soon as I have time. My house is a mess now, if I can show up this thursday to SnB, I will have lots of stuff to tell.

no linky, just copy and paste, changnign the highlights as you go!

Kelly said...

Got the list, and I'm on it :). That hat is gorgeous! I think browns and tans and whites for a guy in that hat would look amazing. Why not do that at the house on vaca? And just start your August sock early on the beach? I can't really think of anything else to knit easily on the beach unless it is a simple hat. That there's my two cents since I won't see you on Thursday! Have a wonderful vacation! I am envious!

Done, although I've got more italics than bold on my list. :-)
