Dead Fish Hat

I really do love the finished result but really dislike knitting this. Sure it's great for mindless knitting but for some reason, I just can't seem to bring myself to work on this so it sits in a bag for far too long. I think this one took about 6 months to knit just because I didn't feel like it.

It is very funky and I know the recipient will love it. Just don't ask for this hat because I won't do requests except maybe one last one for Hector. It might be worth knitting this since he doesn't put any demands on me for knitting. I think this may be a handknit that he would actually use. :)

If you love this hat, it's a great project for a beginning knitter after you've mastered purls and knits. It has a little of techniques that will always be useful in your knitting repertoire.

Low Tide

Two baby hats

Some really quick baby hats for baby Aleksandra since it's been far too long gauging the size of baby heads. This time I tried some preemie hats because I tend to knit loose.

The hats fit just a tad small but still very cute and luckily very easy to whip up. :)

Gnome Hat2
Little gnome.
The above is called Gezellig which is free on Ravelry.

Colorful Baby Hat
Great for odds & ends of yarn.
And this one is called Presto Preemie Hat also free on Ravelry.

I'm off to find more baby hat patterns. Please feel free to recommend some of your favorite hat patterns in the comments. :)

We can Dance

Love this mashup...lots of movie clips to try and identify. The original music video is pretty cheesy but I think the song has held up really well. That's my inner 80's new waver speaking...
