Sunday Silly

I'm not much for sentimental holiday mush so this sweet, yet slightly dark, animation by Anna at Mochimochiland is right up my alley.

Anna also worked with Nickelodeon again this year on some holiday spots.

Knitting and Makeup Converge

Temptalia has a preview of an upcoming collection from MAC and I couldn't help but notice something special about the eye shadows. They're "knitted."

So is the powder!

Making a Big Red Sweater

Tagged for #whatsonmyneedles by @digitalnabi. Just finishing the back of #CustomFit #4 in Manos Wool Clasica. Using my #lilwoodys and #tarboo #burgerbag to hold my knitting. I tag @purlingswine @cirilia and @susanbanderson.

It's been a long time since I showed something that was in progress. I'm still in love with CustomFit and could not wait to start a relaxed fit, long cardigan in some Manos Wool Clasica I bought at my November retreat. Wool Clasica has always been a favorite of mine. That's a skein of it right up there in my blog header. ^^^
 I'm using the Flame colorway which refuses to be accurately photographed.

Where My Hats Went

I've been asked by several people where I donate my hats. This year I gave them to Warm for Winter. A little checking in your own area through your LYSs, guilds or community services groups should turn up places to donate to people in need in your own community.

Here was this year's final pile.


I didn't even count how many hats were there. Let's just say it was an awful lot plus some scarves, cowls and one pair of mittens!

Oh look. I knit a hat. Because I never do that. #rosekimknits

Hats, Hats, Oh My God, So Many Hats

I never wrapped up my epic autumn hat binge. I took a few photos finally before donating the lot.

Improvised hat knit in Crystal Palace Romance (discontinued).

Game Knitting hat from Knit Fit, in handspun that a friend was giving away because she can no longer knit.

Chevron Hat from knit.wear Spring 2012. I used Cascade 128 in black and a bunch of scraps in handspun, Noro, and other 128 colors.

Slice of Life in handspun.

Gothic Tam from IK Accessories 2011 in Fleece Artist BFL Aran.

Ferns from Botanical Knits 2 in Ultra Alpaca.
