catching up

January 22, 2010

I’ve been back in Montreal for a few days now and I’ve mostly been catching up on laundry, watching YouTube videos of Elvis Costello, Jesse Malin, Billy Bragg & Graham Parker (music is both my very new and very old religion) and pursuing my career as a housewife and mischief maker.

I need to catch up on talking about many of the knits I’ve finished since the holidays began. These hats were gifts for my cousins. I asked them in advance which colors they liked and ended up choosing shades and styles that complimented their personalities perfectly, which is pretty funny because the end result differed so much from the original ideas I had for the hats.

This is Foliage, knit in some leftover Malabrigo from my Star Crossed Slouchy Beret.

And this is Mayrose, made with Cherry Tree Hill Charmed, which is alpaca and shimmery bits. Lovely stuff to work with.

These photos are some of the first ones taken with my new camera. I’m much better with the camera now that I’ve had a few weeks and several cities to try it out in. A new camera was the one big gift I wanted this year and was the last one I opened (on the 29th!) It came in a box which I thought was much to small for a camera, so imagine my surprise when I realized what it was. Best surprise ever.

    I’ve been searching for a good hat this winter. It seems like all I had to do was learn to make one.
