Off the Needles

The I Love Football hat is done!  And I think it's going to be too big.  Oh well, too big means he'll grow into it, so that's not so bad.  However, there's yarn left over, and I cast on a smaller version. I am also practicing "jogless" stripes. We'll see how that goes.



I found this cute charm at Country Village and attached it as if it were a bead.



Lots of other projects are under way at the moment, including the binding on a long neglected quilt.  Meanwhile, the house plants are doing their thing, too.



I love the goldfish plant, and it's been having lots of "fish" lately.



The hibiscus is back inside after its summer vacation on the porch.  It rewarded us with one solitary blossom. Said blossom fell off right after the photo was taken. Do you suppose it wants to go back outside?  Note to plant:  It's getting cold out there, and you wouldn't like that one bit!  Not too much else to share, so see you next time. Check out Patchwork Times for more knitting projects.

The goldfish plant looks like a Hoya. Are they similar?

Love the hat colors and the football charm. The goldfish plant is new to me. I'll have to find out more about it. Enjoy your weekend.

Love the hat -= what size is it and is it available. I have some young men here would certainly like that in their football colors. thanks

Your football hat is too cute. The charm looks right at home. I've never heard of a goldfish plant, but I can sure see where it gets it's name.

Love the little hat - and the charm is perfect! He will grow into it, but it might be nice to do a smaller one now :) Let us know how you progress with those jogless stripes.

Love the cap. Could have used it last night as I was blown around trying to get to my car. Lost power three times last night. I love your plants especially the hibiscus.

Bigger is always better even for hats in my opinion. It's super cute -- little people hats, just are, aren't they?

I like that goldfish plant too; the blossoms are unique!

Happy knitting!
