The Christmas gift knitting continues and I am thisclose to bagging my idea of knitting a enough small items to let everyone pick something. I made a list of all my family members that I would want to include and realized I would need at least 16 finished pieces. So far I have 6 hats, an infinity scarf, and 3 pairs of socks. That's only 10 items. I need a new plan. When I figure it out, I'll be sure to let you know what it is!
But for now I still continue to knit in a delusional haze like I'm actually going to make it. New on the needles this week is a Koolhaas hat. I'm using Dream in Color Classy and the color is called Black Parade. It's a very cool color with some blue and teal undertones. Click on the picture to enlarge it and you'll be able to see it even better. So I have two thoughts about this project right now. 1. - Thank goodness I learned how to cable without a cable needle because it is saving me a TON of time. 2 - Has Dream in Color updated their Classy? I've used it before and liked it, but this skein???? Wow! It is so nicely spun and smooth it's like a different yarn, in a good way!
PS- I got my November Rockin Sock Club kit yesterday. Holy Moly, it's the best one this year! And I thought that except for maybe January's kit, it was a spectacular year for this club. Just don't ask me how many I've actually knit :-) I'll show it to you next week so I don't spoil someone's surprise by accident.
