finishing a hat… and gloves.

I found out a friend’s birthday is on Friday and I asked her ¬†if she’d like a knitted gift. I am very reluctant to offer knitted gifts because they just don’t get finished. I’m very moody about knitting, and if I fall out of¬† love with a project it can go on hold indefinitely.¬†But in this case, being on vacation and having just cast-off a project last night, I felt optimistic.

So, today I cast on Lisa’s Beret by Kirstin Kapur – I love her designs! Zapped out that hat in half a day, then moved on to some mitts based off the pattern. Looky how far I got — sorry,¬† just a crummy iphone pic but it’s better than nothing:

I might even finish it tonight, if I push hard. I love finishing projects! Now, what will I cast on tomorrow? I desperately want to do her¬† High Line Shawl¬†or Ulmus Rectangle. Click through and take a look, they are beautiful. I think I have the yarn for High Line… A beautiful green aran BFL by Mosaic Moon.¬† I THINK I have enough. I don’t quite have the yarn for the Ulmus Rectangle. I just dont think it’d work as well in a bulky yarn.

Let’s hope for High Line news tomorrow!
