Just Checking In to Say Hello
It's been a very rough week for me between tight schedule, difficult delivery locations, insane traffic, and snowy weather, so I haven't been online much. Just wanted to say hello to all the KHers.

I've not had a lot of knitting time this week, a little here and there, but am almost finished with another hat. Guess I've been on a hat kick lately. They're just a lot of fun to make and still allow for a small amount of creativity. And this time of year they're quite practical too.

Hopefully I'll have time to finish it tomorrow or some time this weekend. I'm on the top decreases so not too much more to go. It's nothing special, just one made from some camouflage yarn, but it's looking kinda cool anyway.

Anyway, I'm still alive and kicking and haven't run off the side of some mountain.

So glad you checked in, Mason. Been wondering where you have been.

I love the second colorwork hat you made -- it's lovely.

Best,
Susan

Did you see this one?
Hi,
A little while back you posted a hat you made and I wrote saying how much I liked it and included a pattern for a guy hat on Knitty.com
I don't know if you ever saw it because there were a lot of responses to your hat.
Any way here it is again...I'm making it for my son in a dark cocoa main color and a caramel color for the rolled brim...he likes brown.

Nice to see you check in, I have been wondering if you were doing well with this crazy weather we are having. Drive safely and enjoy the scenery, lol. I`m sure this hat, like all your others, will be fantastic (they usually are). Take care Mason.
