December is Lots of Teeny Projects Month

December 2nd, 2007 | View Comments

NaKniSweMo is over. I wore Rogue yesterday, decided it needed some finesse in the shaping, and am now re-blocking it. So I guess I didn’t make the deadline. Boo. But I did finish all the knitting in November. So I’ll call it a half-victory.

But I’ve been knitting almost nothing but sweaters (re-knitting old sweaters, in fact) for the last two months and now I really want to cast on for a billion tiny things.

Already in progress, the Haruha scarf:

The beginnings of the Haruha scarf

I wanted a black lacy scarf and had bought some Joseph Galler Superfine Prime Alpaca for this purpose. I had originally planned to design the scarf myself, but then I found this pattern on Ravelry and decided it was perfect.

Other items in the queue for December:

And a hat for my dad (who, after six months of chemo still has a full head of hair), if my mom, dad, and I can ever agree on what constitutes a warm and wearable but not-doofy hat.

Currently, we are at an impasse. My dad likes those hats with furry brims and earflaps, and my mom and I both find those Extremely Doofy. My mom likes this one hat she bought, which I also find Extremely Doofy, and my dad refers to it as a Communist hat. I rather like the ski hat from Never Knit Your Man a Sweater, but I suspect my dad won’t like the top.

Ahh, the joys of knitting for family. If you know of any not-doofy patterns for a man hat, please leave a comment.
