Half baked ideas

My husband, a former carpenter, says mistakes are opportunities for creativity. In the challenges in life are like that. Take, for instance, running out of time before Christmas. This isn't just a hat I didn't have time to finish -- it's a custom-made hat left undone so that it can be perfectly fit to the recipient! In this case it will be my dad. The hat in question is made with two strands of Cascade held together and knit on 11s. It's very thick and quick, but not quite quick enough. It's in purple and white, which are the colors of the high school where he used to be a hockey coach. He still goes to all the games.

Unfortunately, no time to knit, means no time to get pics off the camera. Photos will follow soon.
