Hey girl: How's the hats coming now that ssk is no longer a bugaboo? I won't be seeing you this weekend, I've got Codie and family coming to dinner on Sunday and John is painting the house when it's not raining. It really is looking good! Your blog is pretty good, you need to put in some pictures of those beautiful hats you design. I'd love to see them and I'm sure the rest of the community would also. Yarnwench

Dear GrandyLJ: I am not doing well today (actually for the last 3 days) but have had some great things happen. Yesterday I bought a wonderful new sock book for 40% off from JoAnne's and today my yarn came for the Classic Lines Cardigan for the KAL. Don't know if I'll end up being in the KAL, have too many other things started. I ought to join the UFO KAL. That would help get everything finished before I start anything new.

How are you doing? How are the sales going? Are you doing good new things with your hats? How did the contest go? Did you win? John says Hi, love Dodie

Hi Granny LJ,
Well for me and my stash, lol, it's definately the colors. They inspire me. One can only hope for a room like that, and I never give up hope ;-)
Have a good day.

Really good. I finished that one I was telling you about, knit 7" then started decreasing,like you suggested instead of the 6.5" the way I usually decrease, and auhhhhh, much better ;-) thank you ;-)
Started another one and will finish it today. Its so pretty I think, I used a heathered green for the top,(I just love those heathers) and a multi green for the brim.
Well, have a great day.

I miss our talks and giggles also. I wonder how the earth can possibly survive without us talking it over and telling each other how bad or good things are. Now, there is no backup system for getting all of the junk out of their systems. Oh well, we've had our life. It's now the younger generation to carry on! Love you, Dodie

Thanks GrannyLJ. It started off good, knitting on my new hat, then had to stop and go to work, now am back home and back to my hat knitting. Will fix supper in a bit for us, then will get back to it.
I finished a hat yesterday, and the thing was to short, I KNEW IT, and the first one I made, it was to big, as I used to big of needles for part of it, so now this one I'm knitting (same pattern, lol, I am determined to get it rite, lol) I'm gonna do the pattern part the way the pattern says, but I'm gonna knit if for the length that I usually do hats(6 1/2" from the brim, then do my normal decrease, and hope I get the length rite this time ;-).
Have a good evening.

Granny LJ are you feeling sorry for yourself. I know how you feel. That's why I haven't written. I''ve been feeling the same way. I hurt so bad I can hardly stand it and knitting even a pair of socks is hard work right now. I'll try to call you tomorrow. I do love ya, yarnwench

Ohhh GrannyLJ, that is exactly why I love to knit hats also. I absolutely love knitting with the expesive yarns, lol. I love the colors and the wool. And I use wool for all my hats and neck warmers. I just love to knit with wool. Heck, I was in 2 LYS yesterday, before work, haaaaaaaaa. Went to one on a mission, then thought what the heck, I've still got an hour or so before I have to be at work, so I mite as well stop in the other one and see if I can find some varigated green in the Araucania, or whatever else I mite see that strikes my fancy, lol. Well of course I came out of there with 2 skeins of Araucania, and 2 skeins of cascade, lol.

Thanks for the tips on the selling of the hats They are definately worth every penny of $35.
Yes, you are so rite about shows, you never can tell what to expect.

Another reason you stated about the making of hats is that they are so quick. That's why I like knitting them and neck warmers also.
I definately do not have the attention span to larger projects, and I have tried, and they are still sitting in baskets or bags unfinished, lol.and so that is why I love doing the hats.
The neck warmers are pretty much the same. And I did some in the Koiqu sock yarn and they are so warm, and so fast to make and the colors are spectacular. I knit them with 2 strands.

Well, I'm almost finished with this hat, I am on the decrease now. Can't wait till it finished.
Talk to you soon.

yes, definately my heart is in NM. Will be living there one day. We go out every year, so hard to leave.
I want to donate hats to charity, toddlers and kids. Then I like to give them away to friends family, and I love to wear them.
I would love to be able to sell a few, I think a farmers market or a craft show would be great. Haven't done any shows with hats tho. So don't know how they would sell. I wouldn't know what to charge either, as it's not cheap to make these hats, lol.
Have a good day.

Thanks for touching base w/me. I'm working on a really pretty hat. I'm really having fun knitting this one. I love the colors. It's a heathered pink/mauve for a bit of the brim and the top of hat and the middle is a multiblue/green/purple/mix. Soo pretty and the pattern is a fun one to make.
Finished another one last week that I really liked to done in blues/browns.
I'm wanting to get me a pair of those Harmony circulars. They look so pretty.
Have you used them?
Have a good day
