these are new...

... if you haven't seen it on ravelry. (do i really need to link?!)

selbuvotter mittens (finally, the right size). Elemental Affects Natural Shetland Fingering Weight, US 1 & 2 needles.

zeebee hat
zeebee hat-- reynolds soft sea wool, us 3 needle. great pattern. but you absolutely have to make a GAUGE swatch! it's in the math, people!

big blue
big blue hat (not for me, but i make a lovely model): self design pattern. twinkle soft chunky wool, us 15 (never again. i lost all sense of dexterity using this mega yarn and needle. it was like knitting in slo-mo).


that's right. i cut my hair. i got a 15 inch braid cut off. i was O-V-E-R the whole long hair routine. Not being a big fan of brushing my own hair, the long hair made for some unpleasant times. not to mention, the time it took to dry in the winter, the long hairs that i was finding EVERYWHERE. it was time for it to go. and i'm quite happy with it!

and that's the recap for you.

Oh my goodness, your hair is so short! It really suits you!
We're going to be living really close to you now - across the street from the tea factory. We looked at a place in your complex, but it had really crazy wallpaper and was more expensive.
Hope to see you soon (maybe when I have some knitting projects unpacked!)

Have you listed your Ravelry name? I love the mittens and the hats. That zeebee hat looks fantastic.

I love the new short hair, very cute! Did you donate the 15 inches??? I plan on doing that once my hair gets long enough.

Very cute hat too! It looks great!
