I get wherever I'm going, I get whatever I need

Hi!  Oh I hate when I have a few good projects going, but nothing finished to share.  I was out of town doing some wedding planning, and my mom brought some new yarn I had left over Christmas.  I decided to pause work on my blanket to try to redo this hat.  A reader emailed me asking for the pattern, and of course I have not written it down so I am doing that now.  Here is a sneak peak!
I am trying to incorporate knitting into the finished product so that should be interesting!  I had learned how to knit when I was a child, but I only recently have picked up needles again.  It is so frustrating to be new at a craft again.  I feel like when you lose a stitch knitting then you lose the whole project.  And casting off was definitely a challenge.  I was on the edge of my chair, sweating, hands-cramping.  Ha!

Hopefully pics & pattern in the next few days for the above hat.  Until then, enjoy this pic of me and my cat buddies reading up on casting off.  Check out the sweet thermal sweatpants and puffer slippers.  Chat soon!!
