Regaining the habit of blogging

Well, the weekend came and went without a post, and that was mostly due to me forgetting about it. I have simply gotten out of the habit of thinking about blogging, so while I am thinking about it...

The finished Fair Isle Sampler Hat. I opted for the tassel instead of the pompom on the end, but this tassel is a little wussy. I will need to make a beefier tassel for it before I wear it. I mean, I want this sucker to induce tassel envy when I am done.

Then there are the socks for my Mom...

in a very seasonal color combo. All hail Trekking 143. These lovely picot edge socks brought to you by Claudia's pattern. I think she would also approve of the color choice. I sure hope my Mom likes them.

Then there's the in progress stuff. I am still going to town (slowly) on the Paistu Mittens, no in progress pics yet, but I have to say that I freaking heart color knitting. I have also gotten half a sleeve into this...

which will not look nearly as good on me as it does on this model, but there we are.

So that's the wrap up for now, more to come soon. ish.

Hi! Sorry to put this in your comments but Blogger didn't give me your e-mail address from the comment you left about the "Christmas Lights" yarn. I did do another batch on Saturday and might have some left. I'll know for sure after I skein it up tomorrow or Tuesday. Send me an e-mail to emily at emilyquilts dot com if you still want some. Thanks!

That hat is AMAZING! Have you gotten anywhere on the sweater?

Boy, that's a great looking hat. And a beefier tassle would be just perfect.

I know this post is a couple months ago--but I love the hat! I don't do colorwork yet, but when I grow up I want to make a hat just like that! Very impressive. I enjoyed your blog.
