Phew, the start of fall semester always manages to throw me for a blogging loop! You'd think I'd be prepared for this, since it happens every year--oh well!
Carpool has allowed me to plug away on my Leyburn socks. Not long until I reach the heel on my second sock now!
And I pulled out an oldie but goodie, my free azalea hat pattern, this past week to kick off some charity knitting I'll be doing all fall long. My local knitting guild has committed to knitting hats and cold weather accessories for temporarily displaced/homeless students in our local school district. It's a project I'm really excited about, and am happy to quickly have five hats to add to the count. We'll need over 100, and will take any help we can get--so let me know if you'd like to contribute to our cause! The pink hats were made with one skein each of Lion Brand Hometown USA in Phoenix Azalea, and I squeaked three hats out of two skeins of Lion Brand Thick and Quick in the Sequoia colorway. To add some interest I alternated two rows of stockinette with one row of garter, and started the crown decreases after I knit seven garter stitch ridges.
