Knitting is very conducive to thought. It is nice to knit a while, put down the needles, write a while, then take up the sock again.

This was originally a Christmas present planned for my brother. But mr.pixie got to it first! This pattern is from Huan-Hau Chye called A Very Plain Hat. I loved how simplistic and fast this knit up. The first one I completed was out of Cascade Rustic, unfortunately, I can't recall what I used this time.
I also took the time out of my 'busy' life to do a good deed. A lady at my LYS came in telling us about how her neighbors soon was deployed last year. Before he left, she had made him a helmet liner to take with him. When he was on leave recently, he requested 12 more for his friends. Here is mr.pixie proudly displaying what he now calls his beard warmer...


  1. What a beautiful contribution. Did she get all 12 made? Hopefully they will be coming home soon and wont have to use them long.

  2. I am pretty sure she got the 12, but I actually think she got a whole lot more!!!!
