New toy.

I got something called the "Knifty Knitter", which is a set of four round knitting looms. I got it the other day and tried it out tonight making the hat described below. As soon as I get my camera working again, I'll get a picture of it, or else get a picture of the intended receiver wearing it. :) Either way.

The Knifty Knitter is really cool and REALLY easy to figure out, especially if one already knows how to knit. I finished the hat in less than two hours after opening the package.

Knifty Knitter Baby Hat

Needle size-Second smallest ring
Yarn-light green bulky yarn
Pattern-knit around for about six or seven inches, bind off and draw the top tight. Add a poofy pom pom if you want.

Final dimensions-big enough for a toddler, I think. I didn't have a toddler to measure it on. I'll give better ones later...when I get a child to model it.

Ooh, actual content...

Question for all ya stash-a-holics out there. What's a good way to store the stash? Currently I've got mine either stacked in shelves (a la knitting stores) or in plastic drawers (not airtight) or in a big giant Tupperware-esque container. They can breathe in all these places, nothing is airtight and I don't have any yarn that is composed of wool, so moths aren't a worry. Damp DEFINITELY is a worry, as those of youse who have been following my other blog know, so I don't want it stored in a way that mold will grow. Also, I don't have pets, nor does anyone smoke.

Update for Update's sake

Still not knitting. Battling evil flood waters of ultimate DOOOOOOOOOOM. Yuck. Did some stuff on the side bar, but it's not showing up yet. I'm lame-HTML person. Yup. That's about it.

Not Much With the Knitting

I haven't been knitting much lately. I've been carrying my knitting around with me, but I've been doing other stuff whenever I get where I'm going. I haven't been watching TV solo either, or waiting for buses. These are my gold knitting times.

So, yeah. :p
