Super Speedy Festival of FO

As if from nowhere, I have two FOs to share.

Here's my first felted project EVER. How awesome are these.

Yep, those are Fiber Trends Felted Clogs in Knit Picks Wool of the Andes Iron Ore, Pumpkin and Daffodil. I did about 90 percent of the knitting for those a few weeks ago over a very boring weekend and then took forever to do the last little pieces. Well they finally got the dunk last night and they're looking sharp. Still drying though, I think that's going to take a while.

And here's the latest and greatest. The low temperature tonight in Austin, TX is 27 degrees Fahrenheit and my poor little head was cold. I cast on for this tonight during Beauty and the Geek (shut up, it's not as bad as it looks) and wove in the ends during Conan. How awesome is that! I live for the stash busting one night FO.

Damon's Head

I've bought the tickets, so I'm pretty certain now that I'm going to see Badly Drawn Boy next month. He is one of my all time favorite artists. My love runs deep. Since the first time I heard Another Pearl off of Hour of the Bewilderbeast, I have been a fan. Last time I saw him I got a kiss on the cheek and an album signed. I was in heaven!

So, anyone familiar with BDB (aka Damon Gough) probably knows he has a certain affinity for hats, generally of the knitted touque variety. And now that I've developed a knack for this whole knitting thing, I'm going to embrace my inner geek and stroll proudly into the arena of crazy fan and knit him a hat.

This is going to be a pattern-free-seat-of-my-pants kind of thing and March 7th is my deadline. Suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

So let the rockstar knitting begin!!!
