Been Too Long

It has been to long since writting here... and it is not because I have forgotten the page... It is just that i have gone back to work after vaction... Which has been pure hell and long hours.... I have had one day off since the 5th of sept. and have work 9 hour days except for the 12 hour shifts which there was four of them....

The good thing that comes out of this is the money... However I have only knit two dish clothes in the last two weeks... Which sucks.. I  use to knit at least three a when I was working... but work has been to much and has drained me.... To the point where most days I do not want to knit when I get home...

Looking for "skull cap" pattern

Getting holiday projects ready, a friend of mine wants a cap like Muslim men wear. It's not really just a short ski cap-- and wonder if anyone has come across such a pattern. Please let me know.

First sweater!

Well, I am pretty new to this group and I havn't posted anything. Here it goes. I havn't been knitting very long (total 16 months) and up until now I have only knitted small items. Because I am temporarily living in Japan, my projects must stay small (yarn costs about 2 times as much)

 Well, I finally broke down and bought enough yarn to do a sweater. It is not a terribly original design (see scull sweater in Stitch & Bitch book) but I like it. Wish me luck...
