Hats, hats, hats
This is a hat for Elder Orton, (if you are not Elder Orton and you are reading this, keep your trap shut till after he gets it, lol). He just got transferred to a new area and I was sad to see him go. He's one of our favorites. I was just telling him that this is really a good time of year to know me because I tend to start baking treats and I have so much around that I have to give a lot of it away. That's when he hit us with the bad news that he was being transferred today.
Anyway, I got a beautiful skein of Madeline Tosh DK in Hickory to knit Oak Trail for one of my girls. Unfortunately once I got into it I realized that it's just way too adult/masculine for her and I had to find something else to do with it. I tried to knit a pair of mittens with it too, but it just really wanted to be a hat. So, I decided to knit a simple hat for Elder Orton to help keep him warm this winter. It'll be his first New England winter and I just don't think he's prepared for it, lol. I'm also going to mail him some goodies once he gets settled into his new area. It's only fair.
Oh! I almost forgot. I stopped into Craftland today and picked up a flier. I'm going to consider applying to be a featured artist this holiday season. They take finished products and patterns so I'm thinking of knitting some baby items for the store and bring in some of my adult mitten and hat patterns as well. I'll let you know how it goes.
