Clown barf hat and a busy November

Today while I was taking pictures of a finished hat to blog about I started to hear this noise and looked outside. It's officially working it's way towards winter, boo!

Reminds me of one of my favorite random quotes: "knit fast, die warm!"

Anyways here's a hat I finished a few weeks ago, right around the time I realized my short hair means there's no option to wake up and run out the door without doing something about it. I move alot in my sleep thus when I wake up my hair is usually in about 20 billion directions! Almost as crazy as this hat!

The yarn I bought a while ago while yarn shopping with my friend Beth, she thought I was crazy, I knew I was. It was on clearance times five and I just loved the crazy colors! One issue with it is it pills a TON, like while I was knitting it I'd get rainbow pills all over me and I had to wash it really well to get all the lose ones off the hat. I totally understand why it was on sale and being discontinued but I love it anyways!

Also, it's less than a month till Chicago TARDIS now, which means marathon of getting everything done. This is on the top of the list. It's for my friends Lynne and Michael's daughter. Next month she's got a huge surgery and when I heard about it I knew I needed to make her a little companion who could protect her.
He's modeled after Bob the Dalek from Torchwood Babiez who's the protector of baby Rose. He's not done, I'm just starting the bottom but I have to admit he's pretty adorable and I'm already jealous of Cait and her new buddy!
