Necessity Knitting - 6 Hour Halloween Hat
Halloween we were to accompany the niece and nephews trick-or-treating, and thusly, I cast on a hat for John that morning. Six short well entertained hours later, John was warmer and envied.
Lesson learned... buy sale yarn when you see it. You never know how quickly it will become useful.
During our trip, I also purchased 2 skeins of Happy Feet, destined for socks, and 2 skeins of local hand spun & dyed wool that was simply too beautiful to resist. I'm slightly annoyed that the hand spun & dyed label offers a weight, but not yardage, so I'll have to measure it when I ball it. It's very difficult to select a fitting project without yardage measurement :(
