Seduce: to win over; attract

Yarn seduces me with her siren call. "Pick me! Pick me!" I am hopelessly enchanted by yarn and am delighted by the endless choices.

WIP Wednesday

Surprisingly I do not have any progress done on any of the socks since last Wednesday.

We left last Thursday to go to Arlington to visit the grandkids. Our other daughter flew in with the baby girl. So we visited with all three grandkids! and had a great time.

What I did do on the car ride up and back...
... was knit a hat.

I used Caron Simply Soft Eco in Sprig and size US 7 needles. The pattern is "Cable Knit Cap" by Louise Pyle. The cables should twist to the right but since I was cabling without a cable needle and had some problems with the cable back, I did the cable forward. Much easier for me without a cable needle.

So I have turned in at least one hat for our knitting guild's charity project.

p.s. I haven't worked on any socks since we've been back. I've been catching up on computer ravelry, emails, blogs, stuff.

Nice hat! And it only took one car ride! I'm impressed.
Also- cute grandkids,below. Looks like you had a great time.

Good-looking hat, Susan! I bet that yarn is sooo soft. I've got a work in progress. It's a Log Cabin knit lapghan (from Mason-Dixon's book). Having fun with it.
