Stocking cap for the Downtown Yarns Hat Challenge!

This week I finished my first ever sample for Downtown Yarns! Rita asked everyone to make a chunky hat for a hats and pompoms window display. I have been wanting to make a snow-queen-esque stocking caps so this was a perfect opportunity! This guy is knit with two skeins of Malabrigo Chunky in Water Green. I added a little bit of white angora to the pompom for pizzaz. :)

My most beautiful button lots yet!

I'm getting the year started off with a little weaving! 

Welcome to 2013!

W00t! New Years Day 2013! It's time for my annual look back at the year before and to set my goals for the new one!

In a lot of ways 2012 was a hard year for me, but somehow it just doesn't feel like it. It was filled with many big wonderful moments, but also sad ones. Eli and I moved into our first apartment together, a transition that was frighteningly seamless. I participated in the Out of the Darkness Overnight for the second time, raising over $4000.00 (thanks mostly to the generosity of the OKCupid staff and the customers of Thompson Chemists). It was held in San Francisco less than two-weeks after our move and was an wonderful, exhausting, emotional experience. In October we took a beach vacation (FINALLY) and spent a wonderful long weekend relaxing away the stress of knowing I was getting laid off in the next few weeks. And then I got laid off.
