But I have a very good reason.
Yep. That doesn't look like my husband's sweater, or a shawl, or the pair of socks I need to finish.
I got bored knitting those things. Really. I was actually NOT knitting because I didn't feel like knitting those items and I knew I had 2 things in my mind that I really wanted to cast on. (The other is a pair of longies from that yarn I just dyed.)
This is a hat for the son of a friend of mine. She lives in the big city, so I don't see her much. But she is coming to visit next week with her little dude, so I figured I better start and finish this hat I promised to make for her. She has little overalls in her favorite team's colors for the little guy and wanted a hat to match. Voila.
It is actually almost done right now. That picture is from a few hours ago.
I know, I know. I said "nothing new" and "nothing not in my queue". What can I say? Knitters are fickle.
