Hats! And making knitting needles!

So I'd been wating to make myself a hat, and not on my Knifty Knitter, either. I wanted to hand knit this had, because I hadn't hand-knit a hat for me, only baby hats.

So I decided I wanted to knot this really cool hat that's in Stich 'n Bitch that has sequins in it. Like, before you start knitting you have to put the sequins on the yarn, and keep pushing them down the yarn until you need them.

One problem, however. While My Mom and I do, In fact, have MANY, MAny pairs of strait needles, we have few circular. Especially no circular #11s, like I needed.

My mother told me to do it on stright needles, but part of the fun of knitting hats, I believe, is knitting them on circular needles.

Anyway, I didn't get very far on that hat, cause I relized that sequins of may colors looked dork and childish. So I'm going to get some sequins that are all one colr, eventually.

In the mean time I went through all the knittin needles my Mom and I own, and we have, like, six pairs of size 5s. Yeah. I would like to give them to people, but my Mom's like no, lets keep them, for no apparent reason. Anyway, long story short, because my Mother is a metal smith, we took some of the aluminum needles and cut them in half and and my mom made it so that the ends that wern't pointy before are now, and I have some size seven double pointed needles and I'm working on a kittiy hat.

And now my brother wants the computer.
