Knitting??

Yup this is actually a knitting blog. I have a picture to prove it.



I finally finished Dad's first hat. I think I made the pic a lil too bright, but the colors are pretty accurate. I think if I do this pattern again, I'll end up using size 4s for the ribbing. The stitches just seem a bit too loose.

I got the 3 cones of cotton today. I would say that it is just a bit smaller than size 10 crochet thread. I'm going to do some swatches using 2 and 3 strands and wash them to see how they look. I'm thinking that I'll make a summer twin set with it. The color in the pic is pretty close to the real thing.
