The Attack is ON!!!!

Well, the kick off of Hat Attack 2 started Tuesday with a great party at Renaissance Yarns. I believe there were about 16 of us that were there and a few that couldn't make it, so it was a good turnout for that shop! Nancy had some good food and lively comraderie and it was great to have all of us figuring out the pattern together and cheering each other on. I had to work the following day so I wasn't able to stay up and knit, but the next night I was up until 1 am. I finished it and it is off in the mail. My target (Louise in Michigan) will be out of the game in the next few days. Oh, my evil side is really showing up in this game! lol I did enjoy the pattern. At first I didn't like the looks of it and didn't like the pattern, but it grew on me and I actually think I would make another one at some point. Right now, I don't know when I will be out of the game or how many I could end up knitting to STAY in the game, so we'll see. Anyway so far this has been a fun event and I would participate again.

WEll, after the never ending bind off, I'm finally blocking! This was a great project and lots of fun, but by the time I got to the last 20 rows, I didn't think it would EVER end! lol

I used Cascade 220 (4 skeins) and size 8 needle. I believe I could have used a nine and it would have still had a nice feel. Mine measures about 45" across and will make a nice lap throw. I'm moving on to the next project!
