for my circular knitting needle. Woohoo! That means I've finished sewing down the binding on the quilt I needed to finish for quilt guild tomorrow. Yessirree ma'ams and sirs -- that means I'm actually early. I'll give you a second while you pick yourself up off the floor. Those who know me well know that I'm always pushing myself with impossible deadlines. I will putz and putz and then.....I will get incredible ideas with limited time to execute them properly. Take Christmas 2008 -- this was the first year for my nephew's new family (his son plus 3 soon to be stepchildren). I decided on Christmas Eve night that I would knit each of the children a hat. Yep, 4 hats, and they needed to be done before noon on Christmas Day. Done, done, diddle-y done.
So now I'm back to working on the Teal Rose Hill hat. I'm using Malabrigo worsted wool in a great shade that happens to be bleeding all over my fingertips as I work. Definitely going to have to wash this one in some Synthrapol when I'm done -- don't want the color running down someone's face when they wear it in a snowstorm!
