the battle ends

Woe is me! An innocent looking package awaited my return from work last night. That's me out of the Hat Wars competition; knocked out by a very nice Isotope Hat from Karen at KG Krafts in Massachusets. Accompanied by chocolate and herbal tea, it wasn't a bad way to go. It's a very nice hat and fits perfectly. Nice colour, too. Later today or tomorrow I should know my final ranking.

The first of my Easy Eyelet socks is also done. I'm holding off on the finishing - grafting the toe and weaving the end - until the second sock is done. I'm still not convinced that I've done the heel correctly. So it may be safest to wait and see how the heel of the second sock turns out, before finishing the first. Just in case I have to rip the foot out and redo the heel.

And I've started poking about, looking through all the yarn I have to decide what to use for my Tree Frog. It's time to try it.

Lovely hat.. but too bad you got knocked out. You hung in there for quite a while!

If you're going to go down, it might as well be to a great hat!
The sock looks fab too

Exciting to follow the battle, even if it came to a sad end! Looks like you got a pretty nice hat out of it, anyway.

It's been fun rooting for you and the hat is really beautiful.
