I had the chance to spend Thursday down at Sandy Point State Park next to the Chesapeake Bay. Of course I had to bring the current pair of socks on the needles with me. These are for a friend who lives in a cold winter climate so these are STR heavy weight knit at a really tight gauge to keep her toes toasty this winter.

I was invited to take part in 50 Hats in 2014 Challenge by Stacey of UrbanGypz and this is actually hat #2. The idea is to set your own goal of how many hats you think you can knit in the upcoming year. I am going to aim for 20 hats since that is doable for me. Plus I won’t lose interest this way.
This hat is out of some handspun from FatCatKnits called Frog and Carp that I spun awhile ago. The pattern is Mandelbrot from Knitty. My project page on Ravelry has the details on this hat. I am casting on already for another one using this same pattern and yarn since I want to tweak it some to suit me. So look for another one soon.
But the real question is pom pom or no pom pom. Thoughts?
A sign of the season is a lovely pumpkin spice latte from Beans in the Belfry after a nice hike along the C&O Towpath with some knitting on the side.
My handspun knit up in a super soft Barley hat for a friend’s son. The yarn is two different shades of Miss Babs. Best part tons of yardage left to knit myself one too!
These unusual pickles are an old fashioned treat. Trying to find a watermelon with a thick rind requires knowing a farmer anymore but luckily I do know a few. Two slightly under ripe watermelons and a lot of time cutting, cleaning and peeling will turn out hopefully several pints of tender sweet watermelon rind pickles. And they are all for a special gift for a friend
