Last Night

Last night, I sat up till 2am knitting my Bea Ellis snow flake hat instead of getting the place ready for the holiday party today. Today, there is a price to pay... but last night, I just HAD to... sounds like an addiction perhaps? I received it yesterday, and I have been so looking forward to knit it. My snow flakes are very natural and organic. No two are alike... that's what happens when I knit late at night. But I love it! The bottom part is knit in cotton and will fold in to create a cotton band, so it will not itch. The light grey is the lovely mohair I received as a gift from garngamen. Its wonderful, soft and warm. Its a bit thinner than the dark grey, but its close enough, and it fluffs up a bit to match. Garngamen is right of course, grey is a color, and as a matter of fact, I like all shades of grey. This will be one of my projcts for Stranded Colorwork Challange.

Ahh, snowflakes. As warm as this winter is so far, knitted ones are likely the only ones I'll be seeing. Very pretty!

Those snowflakes are looking terrific, a perfect excuse for staying up late!

Your hat looks great! I see we have the same addiction to fair isle knitting. Is there a twelve-step program?

Your hat looks pretty! It's very charming with knitting that's not 100 % perfect, isn't it?

I've seen a few of these Bea Ellis hats around blogdom, and I am feeling a stranded 2007 coming on!

Your snowflakes are pretty I love the colors you've chosen.

Wow, thanks for the promotion! Im glad the baby mohair is ok, I like it myself. I really like the pattern! And I know how you feel, staying up late has a prize. And yet it is very calming and relaxing and filling to dig in in the late nite to a great pattern and yarn. Hope you have a great party.

This is good - I can resist knitting and knit vicariously thru you. Love the snowflakes
