I finished Jerry's hat and dropped it off to him on my way home from work last week. I wanted him to have it while it's still cold. When I measured his head it was 24" which is huge. I was worried that it would be too small, so at about half way I looked in Charlene Schurch's book to see how she recommends measuring the head. You're supposed include the ears. Now I was really worried, but I didn't need to be. It fit perfectly and he was thrilled. It's from our Shetlands.
I also finished two more bags and have now used up the last of my bits and pieces of yarns. I was able to use up six bits in the left bag! I've done a lot of dyeing so am starting bags with the new colors. I need to get an inventory before I can push them.
I'm still having a hard time managing my pictures with Vista and couldn't find this for my Easter sweater post. I wanted to show how great Schaeffer's Elaine looks in reverse stockinette. My LYS doesn't carry this so I'll be ordering some as soon as I hear if we're going to have a niece or nephew in the fall. For now, I'm going to knit and watch NCAA and hope UCLA wins the whole enchilada.
Holed up but not complaining
