FO Friday!

TGI-friggin-F! I'm celebrating with a finished object (and proof that I actually do knit!), my Shetland Wool Hat (sorry for those not on Ravelry... but if you're not, what are you waiting for??)...

This is the wool/silk blend I purchased from Painted Knoll Farm on last year's Wool Arts Tour. It was sold as a hat kit and they had included a small amount of the brown/grey wool in case there wasn't enough of the grey wool/silk for an adult hat. So... I decided to play with it a little bit and throw in 2 stripes. I am really pleased with the way it turned out and I couldn't have gotten it off the needles at a better time... It was 24 degrees this morning when I left for work! Look at the frost on the trees!!!

Of course I got some 4-pawed help in the modeling department. Teutul managed the best shots this time...

Lola tried but was interrupted by her pesky little brother...

Hope everyone has a great end of the week... I'll leave you with a little Friday Fill-In...

1. Right now, I'm feeling head-achey.
2. At home knitting is where I want to be.
3. How does one keep up with the rising costs of everything?
4. Matt keeps me on track.
5. Please don't give me any more of your hypocritical, self-righteous bull...
6. The unconditional love of my 4 dogs fills me with joy.
7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to just hanging out at home, watching Ghost Whisperer of course, tomorrow my plans include watching Matt run a 100 lap endurance kart race and going to dinner with friends and Sunday, I want to do absolutely nothing, but it looks like we're going to watch some more kart racing (I really should find some cleaning time this weekend...)!

Cute hat! I am making one (hat, but a different model) and I hope to finish it this weekend. Seems like I've been sidetracked from knitting recently.

Love the hat! Very cute. Looks like you should make a few more for the pups:)

Hat's plenty nice, but I like the four-legged models... ;)
