Another week of fun at work. I guess that's why they call it 'work'....cuz it ain't no fun. used to be fun. We'll have to work on that. Perhaps I need some serious attitude adjustment. Or maybe a drink.

Anyhow. Here are the hats that I'm working on. Two of them are very close to being F-I-N-I-S-H-E-D. [Warning: poor quality photos ahead.]

Yep...Bright green and blue. Perfect for the seven year old boy. The ends need woven in and this puppy is done. Great photo, huh? NOT. But you get the idea.

Speaking of great pictures. Isn't this another good one? I was using the old camera trying to save some time. Ha! Haste makes waste baby. This one is just getting started. The yarn is Caron Simply Soft. It IS soft...much softer than the acrylic stuff I've been using up. This hat will be the red and blue when it's all done.

Camo hat at the 90% finished stage. Just a few more rounds and it's done. This one is acrylic...which I know makes your skin crawl. Cuz acrylic is like a big no-no to serious fiber artists like y'all. But...when you're looking for something that can be thrown in the washer and dryer several times during the winter season, man-made material seems to fit the bill. I'm thinking of getting some of that merino superwash yarn from Knit Picks. But...with the yarn stash I have, buying MORE yarn is not in the cards right now.

This is a scarf that my twelve year old son is working on. It will be a Christmas gift for a cousin. What a kid. He's a quick learner and doing a really nice job.

So what are you working on?

Have a good weekend and do something crafty.
