Forgive Me Turtlegirl For I Have Flaked...

It's been 8 weeks since my last YP post..

Last week, LCK, Blogless friend B and I were talking about the Seasocks Cruise and how cold it will be in Alaska and decided that we would channel our inner 5th grader and make matching dorky ear flap hats. (The scary thing is that no wine was involved in this decision)

So we all bought the same squishy bubble gum colored yarn:

Aracucania Limari
70% merino wool/20% alpaca/10% silk
11sts=4" on size 13US needles

And made these:

Pattern:Earflap Hat
From: knitsimple fall 2007 issue
Needles: Brittany Birch size 15 & Addi Turbos size 15 circs, crochet hook
Started: 4-Sept 7:00 PM
Finished 4-Sept 9:00 PM (including ice cream break)
(I loved knitting with this yarn.)

So if you're going on the cruise, just look for glamazons, dorks, the three of us wearing matching pink hats.
If you're not going on the cruise, why the heck not? Join us!


Tonight at Knit Night at Knit This Purl That I found this cute little guy B made for the Mother Bear Project:

Bears in the window!

I posted my comment as Secret Pal first- I am a dork and completely deserving of my dork hat.

Dork Hats unite!
