Hi all! This project doesn't count for Feb. and isn't a UFO but I haven't posted here in a while so I thought I'd share anyway. I've been wanting a cute slouchy hat for ages but the ones I make (and try on at stores) are always too small because I have a massive head and a ton of really thick hair. So this time I used much thicker yarn than the pattern called for and larger needles and I looooove how it came out! It has the perfect amount of slouch and it's purple which automatically makes it awesome. The pattern is A Slouch for All Seasons by Melissa LaBarre of Knitting School Droupout (love her blog, she has such great style!) and the yarn is Cotton Ease in plum.
I really need to kick it into high gear with my charity scarf (Feb. project) if I want to get it done to donate by the 15th. I've been spending a lot of time getting my Etsy shop ready so I haven't had tons of free knitting time, but now I should be able to devote the time needed to get it done.
