Hats and hats and hats…and a scarf

So a few days ago, I got a very belated Christmas present in the mail!

My best friend from high school sent me this:

She said, and I quote, “I don’t know if these are for knitting or crocheting or what, but I hope you like them and can use them for something”.

I love her, and I’m happy that she tries to understand 🙂

I don’t know what I’m going to do with the Thick & Quick, because from what I remember a single ball is like maybe enough for a hat. But I’m making Moogly’s “Artfully Simple Infinity Scarf” with the Unforgettable! I’ve made it once before with some sock yarn, so I’m hoping it’ll turn out even better with the actual intended yarn! Haven’t really started on it yet, because of course more and more hats are ordered every day…

I really like that silver headband. I’m holding it in the picture because I didn’t have a button at the time but my MIL (the recipient) wanted a picture. And the scarf was super fun!

I’ve actually tried that same scarf pattern before, with what I’ve titled my “Fruity Pebbles” scarf…

I still love it, but it’s still “in progress” and sitting in a box. For some reason with that thin baby-blanket yarn, it takes SO much longer. Also I wasn’t getting paid for that one, so that’s probably a factor too.

Anyway, I should get back to it. My aunt ordered two identical hats in black, and crocheting is always a challenge in black because it’s so hard to see the damn stitches!

See you later!
