I almost finished a whole hat out of the Softee Chunkee last night. A whole hat! I really like this yarn, it's thick so it works up quick, and it's really soft even though it's acrylic. Pretty cheap too, and y'all know I love cheap. I can see myself making a ton of these hats for Christmas presents and charity projects, and maybe a couple for myself to wear to work. I'll take pictures of this first hat tomorrow, when there is more daylight. Hopefully it won't be so dreary and rainy here like it has been. Dreary does not make for good photos.
I haven't started unraveling the grey sweater. I'm not really sure where to start. I don't want to just cut it into pieces, because I want to get as much recycled yarn from it as possible. Maybe taking apart the seams would be a good start?
For now the munchkins and I are headed off to a birthday dinner for one of their friends. Very small, low-key. I'll probably get to work on the hat for a bit while the kids play, and the bonus is that I don't have to cook. Happy Birthday, Korbin!
