The London beanie, about 70% complete
Originally uploaded by panopticon.
Now, I know all you Knitting Mavens out there are going to snicker at this, but I'm doing a little happy dance tonight because I finished the stripes on my London beanie.
The colors of the photograph are way off, it's really deep blue with a gray stripe. I would adjust the colors and such, but that's what I do all day and, frankly, Daddy is tired.
As an added bonus, the beanie is posing on the lid of the newly finished portfolio case you've all heard too much about.
And yeah, the damn thing's on a circular needle now. The previous attempt on dpn's got frogged (again) when I screwed up the counting (again) and messed up the ribbing (again).
I don't think it was the dpn's, so much as the fact that I was knitting rather late at night, but it's easier to blame the equipment, isn't it?
Soon I'll face the ultimate decision: To mount a propeller on top, or no?
