Yarn Blocked Hats

Several weeks ago, I really wanted to buy some yarn.  Really, really wanted to buy a sweater's worth of Klickitat and Malabrigo Worsted.  Weeks went by, and things were out of stock, and back ordered, and different lots and it was all ridiculously frustrating.  I was completely yarn blocked.  Somehow, I ended up down at Michael's, coming out with 5 different skeins of Vanna's Choice.  I'm not even kidding.  And I got some great Christmas hats out of it!

A twisted rib (136 yds):
A Koolhaas (107 yds):
And three self-designed hats with garter stitch earflaps and a garter edge (277 yds):

I also got a Noro hat (119 yards) out of the stash-diving part of my frenzy - it matches my Noro striped scarf, but the Little Dude has appropriated it.


Now, it's my birthday today.  So I'm off to buy yarn, my lovelies!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Now we're the same age again. WHEW. That was a stressful 3 weeks! :D

Don't forget to show us pictures of the new yarn! Birthday yarn is the best.

Happy birthday! I forgot we shared a birthday. I hope you had a good one. What yarn did you end up buying? You've been a productive hat knitter as of late!

Thanks all! I tried to buy a yarn meter, but they were backordered too! I kid you not. So, I got some sock yarn - I think 2011 will be about socks. I'm sort of over churning out shawls!
