Well, It’s Certainly Cold Enough For It . . .

My husband has the flu this week.  I’ve been spending a lot of time sitting around the front room watching Futurama DVDs (Zoidberg knits!)  with him and working on this tam from the Stitch n Bitch Superstar Knitting book.

greteltam1It required me to learn the tubular cast on, which wasn’t tough but tricky, and makes a neat, stretchy edge.  The hat is a bit too large; I’m considering trying to felt it down a bit.  I’d lose a lot of the pattern definition if I did that, though.  As it is, I feel like Mrs. Roper from Three’s Company when I wear it.

Sweater Girl

Did I really forget to mention that I finished this sweater?  Goodness!

It came out so much better than I hoped!  The fit is so flattering.  I want to do it again in green, minus the knot pattern, and with a v-neck if I can swing it (this will be my first attempt at altering a knitting pattern.) The armpits could use some extra width, too.  This will have to be a back-burner project for now, though.
