It is fricking freezing here.
So naturally one has to knit hats.
This is the slouchy copy cat hat except I'm not finding it slouchy enough, so I'm doing that block-it-with-screwed-up-carrier-bags-thang.
With the freakin cold continuing I just hope it dries soon.

The afghan continues, and to make it easier to keep it all together I made a bag. It's got a cunning little pocket on the outside to keep my crochet hook in.
Last blanket I made I went through about 8 - I still don't know what happened to them all. This time I want to see if I can do it with one.

In between I've been rippling. First ripple is the ripple bag which I've been working at on and off.
Then there are the socks I just cast on yesterday.
This is the sock blank I dyed a while back. I'm going toe-up so I can decide which ripple stitch to use on the main part. I just got the Jan Eaton book yesterday and keep changing my mind.

the bag is fab! love the fabric!
You're right about it being hat weather, its snowing in East Lothian today. My son is frozen going to school in the dark at 8am and his beanies no longer fit (he's growing his hair, and it's quite a mop) so I'm going to knit him a "Bloody Stupid Johnson" hat from Knitty winter 2007. Quantum mechanics gone wrong!
