Just some rambling...

So I finished an actual pair of socks. I'll have to get a picture because what's a knitting blog without pictures I say. Magic Stripes, size 4 needles..a fairly quick knit. My son is wearing them and is quite pleased. I'm glad to have a pair complete.

I'd like to do some Christmas knitting, though I'm not sure what. I've knit my bro-in-law some socks. Sister-in-law is receptive to knit gifts too but I'm reluctant to knit her a pair of socks due to time constraints. it may eat up too much time. My sister's hubby has requested AGAIN a black knit hat. I never made him one because I just felt like he could buy a plain black hat anywhere, you know? Still, he's a really big guy so I could make it to fit and he said those hats you can buy at the store just aren't made by you guys (meaning myself or my sister). Let me add he said that with some sarcasm.

I really want to make a couple of scarves.

And the big news is that I am currently crocheting a hat for a very, very famous author. I wont divulge his name because he's a private person. Actually, I'm making him a hat and his wife as well. They had seen a hat I made for one of their relatives and they wanted to know how to get one of those hats :-) I'm quite excited. She has requested green....him, blue. I'm using Rowan's felted tweed for his and for hers a merino, silk, cashmere blend and it is DELICIOUSLY soft and cushy. These hat's are of a newsboy style and I'll post some pictures.
