November OMG accomplished

I completed my November OMG and the finished product is gifted away to a colleague who will be going to the States for a few years with her husband, who is sent there for work.  See the happy lady. 🙂  The pair of arms belong to yours truly.  I was helping her put on the hat.

The pattern for this hat came from Lion Brand yarn website.  It is meant for both men and women.  Most of the time when I start on a project, I do not know who exactly is my recipient.  So such unisex projects are good for me.

Before gifting it to my colleague, I asked my son to model the hat for me.  He was not very willing but after some persuasion, he gave in.

Setting November One Monthly Goal

I saw that Spotlight Singapore was having a sale on yarns last month.  I got my daughter who happened to be near Spotlight Singapore to buy a skein home for me to try.  I wanted to try knitting a size 5 or 6 yarn (bulky yarn) as I had new chunky knitting needles.  So naturally I asked her to buy Heartland Thick and Quick as the yarn is machine washable and can be tumble dried.  I wasted no time to cast on enough stitches to knit a blanket and after knitting 3 rounds, I was satisfied that Thick and Quick was what I needed for the blanket.  With some quick Math I decided that I would need 14 skeins.

Next day, I made my way to Spotlight Singapore after work, solely with the intention to get my yarn.  To my utter disappointment, Heartland Thick and Quick was no more on sale!  What was I to do with 1 skein of bulky yarn?  I searched around the internet and found a few hat patterns that require 1 skein per hat.  I decided on a pattern by Lion Brand yarn called His or Her Hat.

I have started the hat with ribbing.  So far so good.  This is my November OMG.

On another note, if you remember I gave my mother-in-law a crocheted goldfish.  Well, she is now ‘keeping’ the goldfish in her fish tank.  LOL

It looks kind of lonely.  I will have to add more goldfishes into the tank.  🙂
