old deadline

i have been knitting a hat for the hubs
i started it december 1st with every intention of stuffing it in his stocking

deadline missed   : (
rather than a hat, he was gifted a IOU.. awwww poor hubs

my first mistake...
 choosing a pattern that begins with
cast on 180 stitches using a size 0 needle

my second mistake...
using a fingerling yarn in a very dark brown given i have oldish eyes
trying to shop, bake, wrap & well you know all the christmas goodness
you try to cram into a period of a few weeks!

i do love the pattern & the quince yarn....pure heaven!
and i am fond of the hubs

needle... size 0

motivation....andi's january kal/cal

we would love for you to join us!



  1. It looks like it is going to be lovely!
    Someday I will be joining you in the knitting...I promise! ox

  2. Your post makes me smile... Christmas sneaks up doesn't it.
    The hat looks gorgeous.

  3. don't sweat it! the hat is turning out great and the finer gauge will make it so wearable. i'm working on one for my husband as well - 150 sts in 1x1 twisted rib. the things we do for love!
