This fabric shouted out to me, at the cutting table at Fabric Depot. That always happens. I get all my stuff together, figure out the exact maximum amount of fabric and trims I can buy, and then I walk up there and they have placed something this gorgeous right near the cutting table. They get me every time.
This has nothing to do with anything, but it's a pretty picture for the top of the post in which I close the meathead knitalong.
I was not ever going to close it, but it's gotten to be too much for me to add names and emails every day. If my family has any hope of getting roasted apple sauce, brussel sprouts with homemade balsamic mustard, cranberry pear chutney, granny smith & kale gratin, 1792 wedding cake (opens a pdf), and my annual chocolate cranberry cheesecake, I cannot sign anyone else up to test knit the hat. So as a little pre-Thanksgiving present to myself and my hungry people, I'm cutting off the signups.
If you are already in the knitalong and have received the pattern, please post your pictures to the flickr group by the end of November. Thanks!
And now, if it's Thanksgiving in your world, what are you making?
