Pixie hat number 1

While I was coughy this weekend, I started working on woolie goods for Mr. G.  As a first time Grandmother, I feel that is part of my role.  By the end of the weekend, I must have rolled a half a dozen skeins to get ready for knitting and crocheting.  I even went to a yarn store looking for new knitting needle sizes.  I did end up with new needles and new yarn but my old trusty hook came out.  Needing three different sets of needles (and sizes) for a project does not seem to make sense in my head.  Maybe it will when I am a better knitter.

The kettle was put on.  Tea was made and poured and I worked with my hook.

In no time, there was a hat for Mr G.  It is a alpaca and wool blend that will take him through the winter.  I will need to put more woolies in his stocking next year.

Not a bad way to spend a few hours on a coughy day.
