    When was seventeen, I decided I wanted to learn how to knit. I looked up directions online, got really excited, and ran downstairs to find my mother and inform her of my plans.

    She looked at me, sighed, and said, 'Why can't you go out and get drunk, like a normal seventeen year old?'

    I'm still yarn obsessed.

Last FO of 2007…

It was a good year for Malabrigo.

Pattern: Worsted Weight Foliage by Emilee, from Fall ’07 Knitty

Yarn: Lovely soft and squishy Malabrigo Worsted in Autumn Forest (aprox 100 yards or a little more than 1/2 a skein)

Needles: US8s & US7s (I knit the crown on US7s, but couldn’t find my circs in that size, so I knit the body & the ribbing on US8s)

Love the pattern.  Love the yarn.  Love the result.

Because I knit it using slightly larger needles, I got a slightly larger hat, which means it doesn’t open up as much as the lace has in other hats I’ve seen.  This gives it a more textured, nubby look – but Lindsey likes it, and that’s all that matters!

Lindsey’s wearing a scarf and hat I knit for her.  I’m wearing earrings, a necklace, and a neckwarmer she knit for me!

I’ll see you all in 2008!
