still knitting

I finally started knitting the sleeve for sitcom chic - I'm about 1/2 way done, the more I think about finishing this sweater the more I think about other things to knit - mostly things for all the babies that seem to be popping out right and left : ) So instead of the traditional baby blanket I'm knitting a baby bolero - it helps pick out knitting projects that take yarn you already have - and not being a blanket I hope to finish tonight or early tomorrow.

Enough with the cold and snow

So yesterday was another day of below zero weather, which induced me to knit an alpaca hat... It was a very quick knit like maybe 3-4 hours it's hard for me to judge because I made dinner and talked on the phone during the time I made it. Tonight I went to Joann's and got the button which I think is subtle and cute.
The hat was knit up a little different than the pattern - I knit it on 10 1/2's because that's what I had with super bulky yarn instead of just bulky... I also didn't knit the entire depth of the rim because with the super bulky yarn it would have been 1/2 the hat.
Tonight it's supposed to snow another several inches, maybe even 7, and I don't want it too... there's already huge piles of snow everywhere, and my TV cabinet supposedly arrived (after 4 days, they said 7) so I have to pick it up tomorrow and don't want to trudge through snow and ice to get it...

Progress pictures

So I've made some progress on sitcome chic it's pretty boring right now - just plain stockinette though I am ready to cast on for the sleeves, so hopefully that will be more moti.vating. I also restarted the hippo socks, I started them once over christmas and the cast on row was pulled of the needles so I started them again and have about 1/2 repeat done so far... I haven't really been to movitated to work on any of my knitting, despite the cold weather... though it has been nice to be able to wear some previously made knits and stay warm
