Tiny went with me to the yarn store and picked the yarn out himself. Of course he picked Madelintosh. Tiny has very good taste in yarn. I started the hat with just two colors, but I decided to add the light gray to break up all the black in the creeper face.
Here is the yarn I used and you can see the amounts I had left over above the hat in the picture above.
Tiny requested a long hat with a pom pom.
I've made many pom poms before, but I've heard people talk about Stephen West's video tutorial on how to make a pom pom "Pom Pom It". I watched it and got the biggest kick out of it. I highly recommend watching it for amusement. He is a funny man.
Tiny is very happy with his hat and wears it! Gotta love that.
I casted on another Penny Infinity Scarf. This time I am using a skein of Tosh Merino Light in the colorway Calligraphy. I want to see if I can make a Penny Infinity Scarf using only one skein. I used my yardage counter when I winded my yarn and it came up with a total of 498 yards in the skein. The tag says the skein is 420 yards. So we'll see how it works out. I'm running the yarn through the counter as I knit it so I can figure out where I can cut down yardage if needed to make it work for one skein. I am loving the color and I really hope it all works out.
This is my mindless knitting project. It is going to be a long scarf / infinity scarf. I'm using an alpaca / merino blend and mixing up the colors as I go. I am working on US2 needles and just knitting around and around. I keep this in my car and work on it at the bus stop, gas station, doctors office basically any time I'm waiting. But after seeing Lori's Favorite Things Scarf. I am so tempted to start adding some fun decorations in it. At the rate I'm going it might get done in about 5 years.
I have another design with alpaca dk yarn on my needles right now, but I'm not going to give up too much info on it just yet. Just a little tease.
I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving! We will be doing a lot of driving tomorrow. Which means lots of knitting in the car! I love that. We have some crummy weather here on the East Coast so for everyone that is traveling be safe and watch out for black ice.
