Hats and Socks

Dear Christine,

You HAVE been busy!  What an extraordinary idea to knit the Celtic design with color instead of texture.  When you said Celtic in your email, I imagined cables and knots bubbling up and twisting around the hat.  I am so impressed with your use of color work to create the beautiful Celtic designs you've done on the hats instead of the traditional method.  Way to think outside the box.  I am in love with the orange and navy beauty.  Gorgeous.  Will we see a pattern soon?  I hope so. I want to knit one for myself.

Your Frozen Frontier Flashback Friday (4F) photos are so fun.  I enjoyed your photos from McMurdo Station which brought back memories of seasons in the past. You have not aged a bit in 15 years.  Isn't it fun to look back on previous years and see how much the station has changed?

I have been busy too, and the hats just keep flying off the needles.  I'm still concentrating on using up the stash yarn.

I made this yesterday by adapting a chart from The Swedish Mitten Book, a sweet little book by Inger and Ingrid Gottfridsson. It's not in print anymore but I found a copy at my local thrift store and it's packed full of charts.
It's that time of year again for knitting socks.  I finished one, and am still working on the hexagon socks.
Second sock-itis has set in. I'm trying to make myself cast on the second sock. 
Remember the 'egg carton' scraps?  The hat is finished and blocked.  Now for a name for this little cap. 
I weaved in the ends and blocked this hat too which you've seen before.  I'm going to line this one and maybe the others too.
