Knitting in Anaheim

Last night I found myself unexpectedly at a knitting meeting and I had my knitting with me. Guess it's always good to have some project handy.  I had my jester hat project.  I finished the first horn.  It's not a traditional hat. It's more like a hat with dreads.  It's in my mind; I have to make it. I keep forgetting Ravelry exists but I met another knitter from Ravelry last night that makes patterns and she inspired me. I think she said her name is PJ.  Must go find her on Ravelry.  Yes, I'm on there but I forget to check it usually.  Here I am.

Brown Jester Hat

Yesterday at the archery range I started knitting a jester hat for my new jester costume.  The only  yarn I brought with me was dark brown, not the brightest color choice for a merry hat. But that's what happens when you go to bed at 3 AM and don't have your stuff ready when you leave the house the next day. Brown was the only thing I had handy that wasn't already tangled in another project.

So many people were schmoozing, that I only had time to knit one of the 'horns'.  I don't know what those points are called now that I think about it. I'm knitting it on double pointed needles.

One of the trees had a small belt of knitting attached to it in a red shade.  Urban knitting? I wanted to knit something to add to it, but I only had the one set of needles and they were already involved in the jester hat. Maybe if it's still there next month I'll add to it.
