I love it when prezzies go good. *g* I talked to my SIL in Kentucky this AM - she got the hat, tore into the package BEFORE Christmas, and wore it until the weather changed. That makes me happy, since I didn't have anything handy to judge the fit.

My other SIL, jennyp5309 tried hers on at the house - it fits! Whee!! And the color was faboo - double whee!! (pictures are forthcoming - they are still in the camera. I need to just sit down and dump them into the PC.)

I'm about 1/2 done with the BIL's black headband. I have already learned a few things from this project: a) I HATE knitting black yarn and b) 3" of 2x2 ribbing sucks. It's BORING. And hard to see the stitches. Ah, well - it'll be done soon, and I can start on something more pleasant. (Like, say....Socks.)

Speaking of socks....I bit my lip this morning and ripped out the lace sock I had started (and gotten 1/2 down the foot! Wah!!!) It just wasn't working for me. It did fit, but...snugly. More snug than I really like. The lace was stretched pretty much, and....I just wasn't happy with it. I'm going to let it simmer for a bit and decide if I want to try lace again, or just plunge in with a plain sock. Decisions, decisions!

I also need to pull out some silver-y Icelandic and get going on that for gypsybaby1.....Hmmm. I may do it in between this batch and the last batch of the sock yarn. In going thru the stash Sunday, I found 1 oz of carded silvery Icelandic that.....I forgot I had. *sheepish grin* I'll spin it up lace weight, ply it, and hope it's enough for her project. If not...I'll have to work up some of the fleece I have. No biggie....I'm just not currently in the mood to card up wool. Rather sit down and spin.
Current Mood: blahblah

Should be. I don't need heaping gobs of it. I had a thought, as I'm prone to do. The sleeves will be done with regular fishnet stockings, but that silvery yarn you're spinning for me can be knitted up and used elsewhere on the costume. I'll find something to do with it. You know us Corvidophiles... we love bright and shiny stuff... :glee:
