Armed and Ready

With knitting and for meetings, that is.

I’m going with the Abby cowl from Knitty in a hand-dyed wool/cotton blend that ranges from apricot to plum and the Drops neck warmer—my friend Chris had exactly the yarn called for (in a nice grey-blue) left over from a sweater and gave it to me. I’ve got Abby on the needles with the first pattern repeat knit up, so it’s ready to go. I’ll need to pick up some size 13 circulars this afternoon for the Drops piece and get it started, so I don’t have to fiddle with casting on during meetings.

Meanwhile, if, like, me, you have young Potter fans in your life, you’ll want to get Freshisle Fibers‘ Golden Snitch Hat (link to a pdf; you can also find this pattern on Ravelry) into your queue. I know at least one boy who needs this hat for Christmas. (You may also want to check out their self-striping watermelon sock yarn, which is sadly out of stock—but it’s still a delight to look at.)
