First FO's of 2009

Well that's not such a witty title but I have no other.
My winter coat is camel color and I realized I had no brownish hat to go with it, but I did have brown yarn. So I knit one. Now Mr. Truck says most normal people would go buy a hat, but I don't understand that concept at all.


And then I made some more socks. We're having a little read along/knit a long in the Outlander group to get ready for the Dragonfly in Amber swap so I made Dragonfly Socks.

And I finished my Chevalier Mittens. This one is drying on the radiator cover. Doesn't everyone dry things there? Sometimes when I'm really cold I sit on it.

And I just had to show you how much Dunkin liked his Christmas presents. He walked around with both of them in his mouth for about a week. See his tail wagging? And now he knows the word duck. But neither of them squeak anymore.

I made hats when I needed one, too. What does "buy a hat" mean?

And we dry things on our heat vents, but only because we don't have radiators!

I love your Outlander themed socks... cute socks and awesome books!

Dunkin is adorable with his new toy!
I can't believe how busy you have been in the knitting department. I had a heck of a time motivating myself to do anything after the holidays.

I like the hat. I lost my one and only knitted cap in December -- store bought and 20 years old -- and still need to replace it. For now I'm getting by with fleece hats but they're just not the same.

Love the hat! And of course when one needs a hat, one knits it. That's what stashes are for.

Buy a hat! Outrageous!

Wow, wow, wow, so many great projects finished already. Those socks are gorgeous. And perfect for the theme.
I don't love to knit socks but I may just have to try some now that I've seen these.
