WIPeout 2009 - Maroon slip stitch beanie

This has been on the needles for ages. It lived in my work locker and had the occasional few stitches knitted when other things were at a too hard spot or when I needed a project for the lunchtime queue at the Post Office etc.

This last couple of weeks it has lived in the car. Totally amazing how much knitting can be done at red lights. After Mum's socks were finished I allowed myself the luxury of finishing it, as I was at the crown decreases by then.

Snowy, the Old Flame's dog, wasn't a very cooperative model but it's done and in the pile to go to Stasia for the soup kitchen.

As LynS has pointed out in the comments, hats are seductive knitting, it's hard to resist their siren call.

Now back to the socks.

I love the way the slip stitches look. What a great way to do color work. I made one hat with a slip stitch pattern, but it came out way too big because I didn't pay any attention to my gauge. I should try again.

I love getting to the point in a project (especially one that has taken longer to make than it should because I haven't focused on it) when I know that if I just sit down with it, I can finish it up. Good to see another FO from you!

Lovely - and I am so impressed at the way you're whipping the WIPs!
