I don’t normally knit the same thing over and over, except socks, but I knit four of these hats, in a hurry. DD went to Alaska and needed hatS. Wasting no time, I knit the same thing four times and in four different yarns.

Here’s the pile of stuff for a teenager going to Alaska and the Yukon with 54 (!!!) classmates for ten days in Spring:

It looked much bigger when I was sitting in the middle of it trying to label everything.
There are the four hats along the bottom:
Brown Sheep Lamb’s Pride Worsted (green),
Noro Kureyon (purple green),
Noro Kureyon (turquoise brown),
Debbie Bliss Merino Aran (gray).

So, knitting hats and getting DD all geared up and ready for the big Alaska/Yukon adventure sort of took over my spare time for the last few weeks. Now I have a chance to think about what I want to do next. There are the dust bunny issues…but that is not what I want to think about.

Where was I? Poetry In Stitches, Koigu fingerless mittens, that vest I knit last year and need rip, re-write and re-knit, AS vest in Shibui Midnight, the Mason-Dixon Knitting Inspired Dining Room Project (needs it’s own post)

So much yarn, so little time.

    Did you have to label all of that stuff too?! because I fiind that is definately the worst part. And even then, I need to resign myself to the fact that one of the nice hats I knit won’t make it home. 😦
