I whipped up this beanie on the fly just trying out some stitch patterns to create the effect I wanted to make my mother a hat for Christmas.

I am now ready for the big moment- cannot afford to make a misteek.
I've just received a wooly board that I ordered from Camilla Valley Farm. It arrives with assembly required and at the time I opened the package I was too sleep deprived to handle it.

Lion Brand has a new podcast out today specifcally about men who knit and crochet. It includes interviews with a non-profit "Krochet Kids" group as well as a filmmaker for "Real Men Knit".
