To talk about Christmas shopping.
Too funny! Thanks, Amber, for pointing me towards it. I even think that I see my stop. Too bad that it's sold out (and no, I didn't buy it).
Okay, break over. Back to Kate's hat. As you might have expected, fixing the decreases took little time. The only part of this hat that makes me less than happy is the slight ladder that developed on the left-hand side. That was my join. In hindsight I should have moved my needles around a bit more as I was knitting. Oh well.
In fact, it took so little time that I had extra time (thanks to a longish subway ride to get my hair cut) to knit one mitten:
I'm starting to feel better about this.
