When I started the project, I was worried about the hat may be too small. The yarn was Rowan Calmer, it is supposed to be a worsted yarn, and the pattern asked to use size #3 needles, it was so weird. And then when I was toward finishing the hat, I was very worried about I didn't have enough yarn. I was actually very close to run out of yarn. But it is finished, and I love it... I did learn how to cable without cable needles during this project. yay!! ( I appologize that I am going to show lots of pictures of the hat since I think there are so many details within the hat...)
I didn't go to SnB last week, because I was tired out from work. I can't say much of what I am doing at work. Basically, I work in a lab and do some tests that require me to wet my hands every 15 mins. So I now my hands are all dry and itchy... then I have to use lots of lotion for my hands. If I don't want my knitting projects covered by lotion, which mean, I can't knit for a while. That was why I didn't go to SnB, and I was a bit mad and upset about it...
Talking about work, I couldn't believe what I have to wear to work in a lab... This is how I dress when I go to work now... which I think it's a bit too much... I guess I could wear jeans and stuff, but when everyone in the lab is wearing something like this, I can't be the only one wearing jeans, or can I?
After asking some of the SnBers opinions, I finally got a swift. I bought it from Joann.com by using a 50% off coupon. No shipping, only tax, I paid an awesome price. And Sticky likes it very much too when I used it. Thanks to Valerie, Jenn, and Heidi's suggestions.
Last but not least, I got a present from Mom H. She got it for me from Rome. Thank you so much mom, I loooooooove it... It will totally look good in my car.
