For Christmas mom got me 2 Bea Ellis (http://www.beaellisknitwear.com/originals.html)hat kits the traditional and then the Skier hat. Really the traditional was suppose to be her hat...we were suppose to work on them together, but she decided she wanted to try toe up socks again :rofl:

Anyways I finished up the skier hat and she then said take my kit and make it...Here is the skier ready for the slopes...

I went skiing one time when I was in H.S. I didn't really care for it, I'd rather be inside drinking Hot Cocoa and watching everyone else :rofl:

What are your techniques for keeping track of which row you are knitting? I have a magnetic board from Knit Picks, but I'm not finding it to be very useful (see this post (http://www.knittinghelp.com/forum/showthread.php?p=1193855#post1193855)).

I answered in the post, but I use my KP board all the time...and just use the magnets to secure it :happydance:

Beautiful work! I don't ski either because I'm clumsy enough as it is and I don't really want to fall down and kill myself. :) Your tension looks wonderful.

I'm the same way...if someone is going to trip it will be me (or my son)...I can even trip when nothing is there :rofl:
