Let's Pretend!

Quilt progress:


Yes, this is a completely different quilt than the last one I showed you.

NO, I haven't finished the tumbling blocks quilt.

STOP LOOKING AT ME LIKE THAT, YOU KNOW I HAVE INCURABLE STARTITIS...

...you can pretend you've seen it before, right?

Houndstooth Hat (and, um, cousin?)

So, for each new bit of yarn or whatever I bring into the house, I have to try to use two things I already have. So, as the bedsocks for which my Navy and Orange Hometown USA yarn were intended kept Not Happpening, I turned it into two hats.

Two AWESOMELY WARM hats, which will be great. Next winter, of course, since it's starting to hit the 90s already this summer.

Anyway, I did the orange-on-blue first, and had thought I'd followed the houndstooth pattern, but as you can see, I didn't. On the second hat, though, I got it right:


The navy-on-orange (the proper houndstooth one) can be worn out of the house. The other, with the weird lightning bolt things that clearly aren't houndstooth, will do just fin as a winter sleep hat, since, as you can see, it nicely covers my eyes if I fold the brim all the way down.


Hooray!

More Neato Stuff

There's still more neat stuff in the world:

A knitted/cabled wedding cake:


This beautiful violin:


And these cool little 3D metal models from Star Wars. (Why yes, I am going to build these. They aren't kidding about Sharp Parts and Needing Needlenose Pliers, though.)
