This is where I have been finding myself most bitter cold winter nights with major players surrounding me. Of course I just realized I forgot something – it is whistling in the background…..
Cannot forget the tea! The avocado green you see is an alpaca hat designed to order for the Monkey Boy, alpaca was the number one request on his list! There’s a baby surprise on the needles getting ready for its first white stripe. It’s my first and I’m loving the mitered corners. The cones need to be hanked up. Not sure is ‘hanked’ is really a term or not, but they are destined for the dye pot. Crafter Monkey has chosen a pattern and colors, now it’s time to get dyeing and knitting!
I’m a bit worried that I do not have enough yarn left of this ball to finish the hat, which is why I needed to extract myself from the afghan and sofa to scale the stairs and find another ball. Such tough work this knitting. I may catch a chill along the way.
