At the moment I’m down with a rather nasty cold and after finishing up all the socks and stuff I started to knit over the past few months – except of course for my crazy sock yarn blanket – I decided to again work a couple of tiny hats for this year’s β€œInnocent Smoothie Hat Knitting”.Β  Underneath you can admire the first 3:

So far I’ve I have 3 hats completely finished and another 2 are in progress and if I don’t run out of ideas and left-over yarn I’ll do a couple more soon… so be prepared for more smoothie hats posts in the future. πŸ˜‰

In case you are wondering, why anybody would be crazy enough to knit a hat for a smoothie…the whole thing is basically a charity stunt. For every smoothie that is sold wearing a self knit hat 30 Cents are donated to help elderly people through the winter. Besides of that it’s a lot of fun!

While knitting I watched a couple of episodes of Game of Thrones, which is amazingly good…. and that’s high praise from me. I’m usually VERY picky when it comes to movies about books I’ve read before, especially when it’s a book I loved. But they didn’t spoil it and even the choice of characters is pretty good, though the Eddard Stark of my imagination was way more handsome than the actor. πŸ˜‰

The only thing about the series, that is really annoying is that they did an awful job with the German translation. It would have been better, if they’d left a couple of words untouched, especially the names…. even Casterly Rock got turned into Casterly Stein, which is just plain stupid. Oh well…Β  it’s a good thing Dvds let you switch to English.

Anyway, back to those smoothie hats. Here is my ravelry page with the usual yarn/needle details. No patttern details this time, as I made everything up while knitting. http://ravel.me/aravis83/b6ikq

How LotR should have ended ;)

Traditionally my family and I spend the 25. watching all three parts of “The Lord of the Rings” in one go! That more or less takes from morning till night and always is splendid fun! But here is a version that would have saved them a lot of time and trouble! πŸ˜‰ (Thanks Ryan for twittering about it…. that’s just too funny to miss!)

Btw. did you also wait for that bird to just drop Frodo with the ring and everything? πŸ˜‰

Rofl… Dave Carroll did it again. He just published his second YouTube video about how United broke his Taylor Guitar. Apparently his guitar was broken by United Airlines and he promised them 3 songs. (Think I mentioned all this already in my previous post ;))

Anyway the song is great, though I liked the other better… and I still think it’s the best way of complaining about something that I ever saw… well heard ;)!
