Sooo....

So lets start with the fact that I lost that beautiful hat below. Yes lost, gone, never to be seen again.

Me, being the genius that I am dropped it on the train. I sent pics to the lost and found, but they didn't have it. Of course they didn't, why would anyone return my beautifully handcrafted hat. Would they care that Entrelac is a serious challenge for me? Would they care that I really love that hat? Nooooooooooooooooooooo!

So instead of making the matching scarf, I will be making another hat {{sigh}}.

I decided to start Sesame sweater over. It's nothing like getting half way through a project, and realizing that you made it two sizes two small. I guess in my mind I was smaller. Well this will be my last long sleeve sweater until next year. As you can see, it's coming along.

It's funny how you improve your knitting skills over time, but it doesn't occur to you until you realized that you just used an advanced technique. Below are two big improvements for me.

Carrying yarn up the sides (less finishing, yay):

Russian Join (this is my next best friend, also being filed under less finishing).

As far as my spring project...I have several projects in my Ravelry queue. I've been eying this bag for some time now. This would be the perfect knitting bag. I'm thinking that I can do it with a solid/variegated combo. I'm also going to make a wristlet, b/c my company acts like they have stock in Air Conditioning. Nothing like stiff fingers, while you're attempting to type.

I did finish my other hat Belle. It is the cutest thing ever!

Can I tell you that I haven't finished my Cycling Aran. The only thing I have to do it bind off the neck, and sew the zipper. Isn't that sad? I don't know why I can't just get it over with already.

Anywho, have to go.
