Wouldn't this be a hoot!

I have been knitting for over three years now. I can't believe that sometimes... that I have had the wherewithal to stick it out that long. And my passion is still going strong. I don't see the embers of that burning desire to feel the yarn in my fingers and hear the click of the needles being extinguished anytime too soon.

I knit for a lot of people... my customers, my kids (not so much), and for family/Christmas presents. I have not knit myself anything for a really long time. In fact, I don't ever recall finishing a project for myself. I might have made myself one slipper sock. And a lot of good one does, right?

So when I saw the addition to the most recent edition of Knitty.com, I fell in love ... with this.

I want to knit this. What is the practicality of it? The opportunities are endless.

Wearing it to the grocery store.

Wearing it when your daughters are picked up for their first dates.

Wearing it to school to pick up the kids.

Wearing it to overnight family functions, and spending most of the day in it until it is time to "fix your hair." I SO could have embarassed the ever living crap out of my MIL at Thanksgiving had I donned this beauty.

Wearing it to drop the kids off at school.

Seriously, I am VERY close to getting the supplies for it. And you know what? I think I AM going to make this.

But I think I will make it for my aunt first.

OH. YES! You have to do it!! And post pictures!!
MY MOTHER used to do this to my sisters and I when we were little girls with the soft spongy ones you slept in. TORTURE INSTRUMENTS! And when you got up in the morning, half of them were out.
Too Funny. :D

OMG! Yes, that is hysterical! I love it! You must make that!

I don't knit but I bet I could pay one of the ladies at work to churn one of those out for me. Hehehe. And I'm evil enough to give it to my pretty much bald pseudo-FIL. And yes, he'd wear it!

Bwahahaha!

Janean ... I remember those and I was always (and still am) picky about how tight things had to be in my hair. I couldn't STAND those foam ones because they would not stay in my fine hair and they would loosen up, and I would FREAK out. I remember freaking about it.

Ok ... now that I admitted that, I think I will not be so freaky when my DD freaks when things don't feel right in her hair. ;)

YES! You NEED to do this. But when you post pics, you need to show the reactions on your kids' faces when you pick them up from school;)

Kelly! That would be an absolute HOOT!

I can call this Operation Embarassment.

Or Operation Observation.

Oh perfect. I have found a project.
