I had a bit of a knitting spree this winter. It began over Christmas break, when I received a gift from my future sister-in-law, but hadn't bought anything for her. So I made a neck warmer. Then, I made a hat for my brother-in-law. By that point I was on a roll. A friend of mine had told me once several years ago that she wanted me to knit her a Hallowig. Since she is back in the US after living in China for some years, I decided it was a good time to start.
Well. The Seahawks made the playoffs, and were kicking everyone's butts. After they won the NFC championship, I had the brilliant idea that I needed a knitted wig for myself in lime green, that I could wear during the Superbowl. Most of the knitting ended up happening the day before thanks to school, and there were many moments of frustration when I screwed something up, but I completed it in time! It was a pretty big hit. I was told in Fred Meyer on Sunday that I should make them to sell! What a brilliant idea!
Too bad this project has put me off knitting temporarily.
