Thinking Time Equals Knitting Time

Over the last few days, preparing to publicly declare  my knitting goals for 2012,   I have had  lots of fiber-y thoughts running through my mind.   What  better activity to accompany  fiber-y thoughts than knitting? 

When I sat myself down with a stern admonition to focus  -  get those goals set, I accompanied that focusing/thinking with the cast on for my next Felted Bucket Hat.
This one, number six, I think,  is knit with Berroco Ultra Alpaca a 50% Wool, 50% Alpaca yarn that should felt well.  It is meant   to coordinate with this colourful scarf 

and both to be worn with my new winter coat. 

Fortunately, with our spring-like winter, there has been no rush to finish the hat.  Now though, having my 2012  knitting goals in front of me, I am motivated to get started.  Knitting  this hat was the last on my 'to-knit' list before casting on for a 2012 goal-oriented project.
Huge in it's un-felted state, it should be just right after tonight's felting.  Then  I am ready to   knit on with renewed 'en - toos - iasm' and also  ready for   some cold, winter-like weather.

Ted's oversized hat made me laugh. Can't wait to see the felted version.

Aside: I hope this stupid (lovely, but stupid) weather won't affect the apple crops....
