Halley's Comet

I'm off to Durham, NC tomorrow to visit my family.  My parents relocated there in May and I have really missed them.  It will be good to see everyone, my sisters both live there too.  Although we grew up in NJ, I'm the only one left in the Garden State.

I'm not sure if I will get a chance to post while I'm there.  (Or if I will produce anything "blog-worthy".)  But I will leave you with the quickie hat I knit for DD#1.  She wanted a "summer hat".  I found Marnie MacLean's Halley's Comet hat while playing around in Ravelry.  (Which I am spending way too much time doing these days.)  It was a quick knit without being boring.  I'll definitely be making more of these.





Pattern: Halley's Comet by Marnie MacLean - a well written pattern and I love the way it turned out, I'll be making more of these.
Yarn: Lion Brand Cotton Ease, color Lime 1 skein
Needles: Knitpicks Option US 7 magic looped - that's how I like to knit my hats!

Last week while I was in Mexico Ava and Lola of Two Black sheep nominated me as a Rockin Girl Blogger!  Yay!  I was very flattered, and think they are pretty Rockin' too!  Thanks Ava and Lola!


I'd like to nominate a few Rockin' Girl Bloggers too:

Nova at Archivist on the Edge
- even if she didn't have the cutest model around, her photos and projects would keep me coming back.

Carole at Carole Knits - who inspires us with her example to live as green a life as we can, charms us with her re-enactments and adorable husband and seems to crank out socks and lace shawls at inhuman speeds.

Beverly at PoMo Golightly - who was one of my very first commenters, is the master mind behind last year's Knit Sock Kit Swap and the Knit Mitt Kit Swaps and recently knit the most beautiful shawl for her wedding.


Megan the Knitting Philistine
- because Fiberlicious is such a fabulous idea and because I wish I could live her life, working toward my PHD in Near Eastern Archeology - oh, and she's a pretty skilled knitter too!

I hear you on the Ravelry front! I had it under control once I got my projects and stash in there. But then they opened up the groups tab this week, and my time management scheme has disintegrated. But man, is it ever useful! I got some invaluable info yesterday about the behavior of some yarn I was using.

Have a great time on vacation and thanks for the rockin nomination!

Awww, thanks for the nomination! Enjoy NC!

Have a great time in Durham and check out the LYS 'Cozy'!!

Great hat! Congrats on your nomination! I think you're pretty rockin' too!

I am with you on the Ravelry thing too. Because of it (in addition to work being hectic), I haven't posted to my blog in ages. I am definately addicted!

Nice hat!

You are pretty rockin' yourself! Have a fantastic trip!

Oh wow, I like the hat. It looks really comfy. Did you just recently get your Ravelry invite? I'm one of the 10,000 people still waiting for one. :D

Have fun in NC!

Great hat! I will have to look that up. Man, I can't get enough of Ravelry either!


Neat hat! I'm not on Ravelry yet (I'm being a total weirdo and just waiting until the site opens), but I fear my knit queue growing out of control! Enjoy your travels!

Fabulous Hat.......Yes, you are a rockin blogger girl........!
Have a wonderful trip!
