Sunday

The last day of my freedom turned out nasty and cool, slightly drizzly. A perfect day to wrap up on the couch and knit, I felt driven to get to the gym first and was unsuccessful in my attempt to get Laura Jean to accompany me. After that, I created a video in honor of my son Michael's birthday.  This necessitated several sniffly, weepy hours of work, all of which I feel entitled to as a proud mom. I was pretty satisfied with the tear jerking result. NOW IT IS TIME TO KNIT! I am working on the celery green sweater, it is straight knitting right now so I can watch the Yankees while I am working on it. I registered on Knit Picks today, I am interested in seeing what other knitters are working on and having trouble with. I want to add another photo so my mom can see it.

Chloe Kim Fever

There is nothing like seeing a knitted item and furiously trying to re-create it!  This winter, in the Olympics, the adorable young Chloe Kim showed up all over the TV in an adorable hat.  Right away I wanted to try to make the hat for my daughters.  I spent a few days trying to get the same look, using different yarns, different size needles...Finally I got the look I wanted.  I never did find the actual yarn that her hat was made of, but the super bulky yarn by Lion Brand fit the bill.  After several trips to Michael's I found enough yarn to make four hats.              My two daughters in their hats! Here is a photo of Chloe Kim in her hat, the inspiration for my projects. This was very exciting to me.   I am going to write out my pattern to share.   CHLOE KIM HAT Materials: Size 15 needles. I would use a 16” circular or two circulars to knit in the round, Another option would be DPNs , whichever works best for you. Chunky yarn, I used Lion Bra
