Keeping Me in Stitches

hatmione or pencil eraser?

I just finished my hat for the the hat contest SoP is having this month. It's the cable/bobble/braid hat the Hermione wears in PoA. However, I can't decide if it looks good on me or makes me look like a pencil eraser is on top of my head. No pics yet. I still need to block the thing.

Need to get to work on my HP scarf....only one and a half more repeats left. Then I'll go on to the mittens that match the hat if I have time before GoF is released.

Also need to get my butt in gear on Christmas presents. And cast on another pair of socks to knit on at work. I've got an orientee and that makes my nights pretty boring since she does most of the work.

    I've been thinking about what I want to do for a hat as well, this should be fun! BTW - if you can, mark on your calendar that there's going to be a rockin' Halloween party on 10/29. I'll be bringing the invites with this week or can email one to you. Costumes, booze, pool, and darts - what more can you ask for? =)

    i just found out about the hat contest on thursday, so i've been thinking about it. i've got a skein of manos i havne't a clue what to do with, but i think i'll make a variation on the short row hats i've been making. i'm thinking cables allt he way up, and twisted stitches for the crown. hmmmmm. i just saw a commercial for GoF tonight, and i can't wait! DRAGONS!
