Yarn Along (SOS)!


Yay!  I can finally participate in the Yarn Along again!!!!  I'm working on a hat for my mother right now...I haven't decided yet if it's an ugly hat or not, but I'm too far in to turn back!  Please tell me what you think!
(and be honest...I can take it)!  I need to know, because if enough people think it's ugly I will start anew and knit my mother another hat.

And to make sure I don't succumb to total mommy brain I'm reading "I Am Nujood, Age 10 and Divorced"...I'm only a few pages in, but so far I'm hooked.
I just finished a wonderful book last week called "ROOM"...by Emma Donoghue...oh my goodness...what a strangely terrific book!  Do check it out if you get the chance, (I'd post a picture of it but it was due back at the library yesterday!)

Ahhhh...knitting and reading...I think I'm in LOVE!

  2. I'm knitting a hat for my mom right now too, striped and I'm sooo hoping it won't be ugly either! I really like the blue of your yarn, and I think older people like neutral shades like the cream. I mean, she might not wear a whole hat of the blue like I would but she'll love the stripe of it. Does that make sense? lol! I hope so!

  3. I don't think it's ugly! My mom would like it, I think. That book looks very interesting, too! I think I might be enjoying seeing what everyone is reading more than all the knitting, if that's possible.

  8. Ya know, if you're not happy with it, you could always turn it into a felted bowl (assuming it's wool). But I'm with Amanda, I think your mom will love it.

    Much love...

  9. I've been curious about that book. It's on my list to read and I've just never gotten around to it. Books in a similar vein that I enjoyed were Lipstick Jihad and Kabul Beauty School. I hope you let us know what you think of the book after you finish!

  12. I'm not into toque style hats, but I don't think the colours are ugly. I really like the blue. Besides, like the other ladies have said, moms like whatever we make them :) Just like we like the offerings from our little people.

  13. The hat is NOT ugly, I think my Mom would love it if I knit the exact hat for her!
    I've never heard of the book, but even the title is intriguing.
