Girls Write Out
Thursday, December 11, 2008

I just had to share my latest knitting project. I couldn't find my camera and my daughter had to tell me how to take the picture with my computer. The water bottle was the nearest thing I had to a head form. Should have gotten a picture with a grandkid wearing it. Sigh.

I actually tell you more than a lot of my friends here even know. For instance, I hadn't told anyone at my church that I was knitting. So imagine their surprise on Wednesday night at choir practice when I pulled this cap out of my bag and boasted that I had made it. Instead of cheers of encouragement, this is what I got:

"Let me see that." At which time, said "friend" turned the cap inside out and told me she was checking for a Wal-mart tag! Can you imagine? I'll bet she's one of those who checks the backs of cards for Hallmark too.

Then I showed it to someone else and that person said, "What is it?"

WHAT IS IT??????  It's a hat, for crying out loud!!  You know, those warm things you put on your head in the biting chill of winter? Any of this ringing a bell???????

Okay, okay, they really are good friends and we had a good laugh together. And to be honest, I'm not deterred in the least.

Oh, one more thing! I was at the Christmas open house at the yarn shop and can you believe I won a Mary Engelbreicht knitting bag!!!  Whoohooo!!!  Just feeds my new addiction. 

(Waving at fellow-knitter/blog reader, Christy!)

Just had to share. Aren't you glad?

Darling hat, Di! I'm impressed!

That is really cute! Did it take a long time?

Thanks, girls! Betsy, it took me a week--but don't be impressed. The teacher was standing over me most of that time. :-)

Cute hat, Di!! The border yarn is the same yarn I crocheted an afghan out of. Love the colros. I gave it to my mom and she cuddled under it all the time.

She actually left this world under it.Sounds morbid but it isn't really. Now when I snuggle under it, i's a nice reminder that she's with Jesus.

I LOVE it! Great job!

OOoh you're getting good enough for dangles! You rock girl. Question: is your house being overrun by yarn? That's why i don't do crafts, though I'm starting to paint again and that's a lot of crap too.

I think it's very chic. I also think you should knit something and do a giveaway...we're freezing out here!

LOL!! That's a GREAT idea, Suzanne!!! Soon as I get good enough, I'll do that!

Thanks for everyone's comments!

How nice of you to leave out names to not incriminate anyone! :) I still think you should have modeled the hat yourself. oops, I think I just incriminated myself. Love ya

Now, if you could only knit Kristin a designer handbag...

At 8:58 PM, Blogger Diann Hunt said...

3boysmommy--your comment was too funny!!

Anonymous--a designer handbag for Kristin? I'm definitely not good enough for that one yet. LOL!

That IS impressive! But this is from a gal whose scarf she knitted in high school looked like a rag that had been lost on a Chicago street in the rain. You could have gone even simpler, and I would be impressed.

But I spit my coffee over friends demanding, "let me see that." You are the rarest of gems, Di. So many talents.

Everytime I read one of your blogs I usually get a little chuckle, but with this one I think I sounded like a laughing hyena....ok my cold doesn't help, but still. I could totally tell it was a hat and you did a great job!!!
