Hey, what's that white stuff?

Okay, so I have been back from my ski trip for a week and still haven't blogged. I was hoping to have pictures of my CPH by now, but that is a story for later. Yes, it got finished, but again, story for another day. What? You want proof? Alright, here you go:This was taken in the airport terminal at Dallas Love Airport. I got there in plenty of time for my flight ('cause I am OCD that way) and sat down and sewed the sleeves in and finished up all seams. Yes, and then I put it on and didn't take it off all day. But more of that later....

Once I finished my CPH, the next logical step was to cast on something else. My Chicks were unnerved by the fact I was going on a ski trip, i.e. a place with actual snow, but did not own a knitted hat. Don't get me wrong, I have plenty of hats I have wanted to knit. I just haven't gotten around to it. So while waiting for my flight (that was late, of course) I cast on a Lucky 7 Hat. By the time I actually boarded the plane I had the ribbing done. While we were sitting on the tarmac (and sitting, and sitting.....), my fellow passengers and I considered starting a pool to see if I would finish the hat before we actually touched down in Albuquerque. Sadly, I only made it to the head decreases. But, the rest was finished on the way to Red River, NM.
Pattern: Lucky 7 Hat by weezalana
Yarn: Um....worsted? I's some handdyed I got from a swap. Anyone I swapped with know this yarn?
Needles: US 8
Mods: None

I was going to make the ribbing longer, but I didn't know how much yarn I had. I kinda wish I did, make it fit nice and low on my ears and have the possibility for a ponytail. Can't really have one the way it is, hence the braids.

What? Your checking out the VIEW?!? Yeah, it was really pretty up there.Check out one of the favorite sports at Red River. What you see before you is a run called "The Face", as in "the face of the mountain". It is a rather steep slope and there are quite a few people who go down this slope, or at least attempt to. You see, at the bottom of the slope is a nice little establishment called "The Lifthouse". It has a nice balcony, tables, chairs.....and a bar. of the favorite activities, when you aren't on the mountain, is to sit out with a beverage of your choice and watch people fall down the mountain. It's entertainment folks. Normally, I might feel bad about something like this, but I fell down the face a few times and gave other folks entertainment. But you know what's better than watching adults fall down the mountain?
He's king of the mountain.....gotta love little kids in the snow.
