Fitzgerald, WNY, and Lysol

Thankfully, all signs of sickness have left the house!

I've finished reading Tender is the Night, and am realizing there's no reason to make a flapper hat. There are no flappers in the book. I love Fitzgerald's references to places in Western New York. I have BEEN to Batavia many times (well, I've driven through it), and I have friends who live in Lockport. Hooray for WNY! I also learned that reading the classics takes away knitting time.

I have finished two dishcloths as a housewarming gift and the second version of Ela's favorite hat. This one WILL be wrapped up and given as a gift. (Is it bad that I lysoled the hat and cloths, just in case I had sick germs that will survive?)

I've cast on a hat for big boy. I wanted to make a striped stocking hat, but DH said the boy is too old for such cutsy-ness. I haven't found a pattern for a striped hat that I like, which means I'm making up my own pattern as I go along. I'm a little nervous! I'm using the Superwash Wool for Knit Picks in navy and green. I wish the green was a little more Kelly green, but the Dublin will have to do.

I finally got a sign-up for Pay It Forward. I know from my counter people are reading this - so c'mon! Sign up!

Also, if you're interested, check out the Christmas Around the World Swap. It's closing at 100 people, which I think leaves 10 spots.

Happy Knitting!
