Oh man, it has not been that long since I posted. Oops.
So anyway, after that last entry full of good intentions and plans for Christmas knitting and resolve to work on my sweater, I sat down with my friend D- for coffee. And D- is a really swell guy, but sometimes his head gets cold, so he said to me: could you knit me a hat?
We have been friends for seven years. I said yes.
(This is the best picture of the hat I have, and it’s no longer mine to to photograph. I have this problem with things I knit for gifts. Anyway, it’s made of Dream in Color Classy, half from stash and half bought fresh. I used Jared Flood‘s Turn A Square pattern.)
Okay, but here is the thing. D- has a roommate, and he is also my friend. We’ll call him, I don’t know, B-. I couldn’t knit something for one without offering to knit something for the other, obviously, so I’m also making a scarf. In the same yarn.
(I’m trying my hardest not to go all Mrs. Weasley and accidentally give them matching winter wear. It’s going well so far.)
