Project Updates

So, you see the weird hat. I tried this thing on and I thought my head was going to topple over. The knot makes it so heavy; but I swear, it looks just like the photo in the patten. I may have to take the knot out and do a weave through or something. I can't sell or give it away - it could hurt someone!
The scarf is folded-4 times. I had someone 5'7 drape this over their shoulders and it still reached the ground. They could fold it over their neck several times which made it very warm. It's the Sunset Strip scarf. Someone wanted to know if it was a pastor's stole and I had to laugh because I had the idea the StitchCraft group should make one and give to the three pastors in our church. I still may look up some stoles on line for inspiration and do one in stockinette stitch then duplicate stitch the symbols in. Of course, I will let you know if that should come about.

Does she really have 5 projects going? Yes, she does. Don't know what she was thinking, but there you are. And for all the projects I have going and all the yarn it takes. My house still looks like Yarn Warehouse, LTD. It breeds in the dark when I'm not looking. And it will never end.

You could always unravel your hat and make another style. It's a really cute hat but that knot does look solid. -- I love the colors you've chosen for your Sunset Strip Scarf. I tried to find that pattern on Ravelry and couldn't. Where did you find it ?

I think I'll undo the knot but make an i-cord to pull through and put a charm or something on the end.

the pattern came from the book quick knits - cool projects. it is cute, but you could use it as a weapon!

I've seen a hat pattern like that and considered making it because it looks adorable. I'm glad that I didn't because it would make me crazy being all top-heavy. I hadn't thought of that.

Thanks for saving my time!

hey jenny, yeah, it's enough to make you cry. i can't imagine the girl wearing it in the book was all that thrilled - but at least she was getting paid. i really will have to do something about it!
