The wait is over!

After a year of planning, buying and otherwise honeing my skills I have now finished the Koolhass Hat.

Koolhaas Hat 2

I will admit that it was a bit fun to make, once I stopped using the cable needle.  Really it is a must when you make this hat.  (you can still make it with the cable needle it just take so much time to use.)  I will however have to make another one for two reasons.  One, it was a bit short for hubby so I need the extra repeat, and two because the MIL took this one!

I loved using my new Knit Picks circular needles.  I got the wood ones and they just feel so much better in my hands then the bamboo ones do.  I’m glad that I just sucked it up and ordered them.  I have the chance to buy a whole set of Nickle plated ones, and yes Jocelyn I still very much want to get them I just haven’t had the chance yet, I think I may sell the Denise ones I just got if I find that I like these better, or not! LOL

I have a project that I’m working on right now.  It’s a bag for my needles.  I can’t say anymore, but I stole the ideal from hubbies fishing tackle.  If it works out like I hope than I will have the pattern, or the bags for sell, so stand by!  It will also work great for crochet hooks too! 😉

It’s joke time!!

Q:
How many women with PMS does it take to change a light
bulb?

Woman’s Answer:
One!
ONLY ONE!!!! And do you know WHY? Because no one else in
this house knows HOW to change a light bulb! They don’t
even know that the bulb is BURNED OUT!! They would sit in
the dark for THREE DAYS before they figured it out. And,
once they figured it out, they wouldn’t be able to find
the #&%!* light bulbs despite the fact that they’ve
been in the SAME CABINET for the past 17 YEARS! But if they
did, by some miracle of God, actually find them, 2 DAYS
LATER, the chair they dragged to stand on to change the
STUPID light bulb would STILL BE IN THE SAME SPOT!!!!! AND
UNDERNEATH IT WOULD BE THE WRAPPER THE FREAKING LIGHT BULBS
CAME IN BECAUSE NO ONE EVER PICKS UP OR CARRIES OUT
THE  GARBAGE!!!! IT’S A WONDER WE HAVEN’T ALL
SUFFOCATED FROM THE PILES OF GARBAGE THAT ARE A FOOT DEEP
THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE HOUSE!! IT WOULD TAKE AN ARMY TO
CLEAN THIS PLACE! AND DON’T EVEN GET ME STARTED ON WHO
CHANGES THE TOILET PAPER ROLL !!
I’m sorry. What was the question?
