I lucked out and got a used set of Knifty Knitter looms at the Goodwill in Atascadero for $3.25. There were a few extras in there, but the hook you need to use the looms was not in there. So when we went to Beverly's I picked one up for about $1.50. So now I can use the looms to make some new hats. I started one in blue and yellow. Sadly when I opened the plastic carry case everything inside reeked of cigar smoke, so it will need some Fabreze and some time out in the fresh air. There was a bit of red yarn in there that I'll probably just toss and the plastic doesn't grab the fumes as much as yarn does. I didn't really need another project while I'm traveling but I just couldn't resist.

Last night I started knitting a little yellow hat for my granddaughter Maggie. I didn't want it to get lost in all the other unfinished projects, so I set a goal to finish it today and I did. It's made on four double pointed needles. Figuring out the little nubbins took some doing but I like the way it came out. I wish my granddaughter was here to try it on, or I wish I had a doll to put it on so I could show you how it looks on a head. I still have to weave in the loose ends and take photos of what it looks like when its done, but I've run out of daytime.
