Hats....Dammit I Forgot the Baby Blanket

This is the hat I was knitting for mom when she died. I have a huge head compared to her. I wanted it to be warm and beautiful. I haven't even weaved in the ends. 
This didn't turn out like I wanted but it would be warm. 

I made two just alike. This is the bigger one. Warm and practical.

I followed a pattern on the one above. Following a pattern is so fussy. FOR THE BIRDS. I am more of a seat of your pants knitter.
Next time I will get a pic of the blanket I spent two frickin' months on. Better do it before I give it so Crystal. I got it washed and dried, and I don't think I'm going to block it. Turned out ok.
I got a new couch and love seat and I am thinking of knitting a big cabled throw...just realized I ought to drag out the white one I made mom. Get some use out of it,

Still At It

I am knitting. I've made a couple hats.
Good Lord what am I going to do with all these hats???
I try different things once in a while. I love to buy weird yarn.
I am working on an ear flap hat at the moment. It's going to be a close finish because I've already done a hat off this ball of yarn.
My hands are being troublesome. This is the first time since winter I've had to take my naprosen twice a day. There are little electrical explosions going off in my joints and I assume it's the weather.
I'll post pics of the piles of things I've done, when I feel like it.
Really I need a new camera. Because phone pics suck and my old cameras are crap.
