Moving Right Along

Octopus hat number two almost has the hat portion finished: 

At this point in the construction of octopus hat number one, I hadn't even revealed what the final project was going to be. 

I'm just about ready to start on the tentacles. So, it's coming along. Slowly. I'll get there.

Have you started your Christmas shopping yet? (These hats are Christmas presents.) What do you want to receive for Christmas?

  1. I haven't even starting thinking about Christmas yet and I probably won't until November.

  2. I haven't thought of Christmas yet. Well, that's not true, I already gave my son a birthday/Christmas gift (that painting I shared on my blog), and I'll fill his stocking. I'll find some stocking stuff to send my daughter, and things for the pets! We don't do much. I don't usually have a list of "wants" either. I'm not sure if that sounds simple or boring.

  3. Starting to think about it now that we have a slow opening from lockdown announced (couldn't have bought anything anyway). I usually have my shopping done by October so this is going to be very late for me!

  4. It's coming along nicely, hat #2 and soon #3 are going to be finished right in time!
    Christmas looks very far to me, but I know it's coming too, faster than I'm thinking 🤨

  5. No thoughts about Christmas. What I would want for Christmas isn't anything money can buy. On a happier note, you really are coming right long.

    1. Thanks. (I figured there wasn't much to say about the hat, so I left a question for people to hang comments on.)

    2. I know what you mean. :) Offering a question prompts some great comments, doesn't it?

    3. It can. Or it can get people thinking about Christmas, which may or may not be a good thing.

  6. I have no idea what to do for Christmas, but your octopus hats are a lot of fun.

    1. Yeah, when I saw the pattern, I knew I had to try it.

  7. Glad you're making such good progress. Yes, I'm just starting my shopping. I'm getting my nieces, nephews, and other family members gifts bought so that I can stagger the buying.

  8. It's already been mentioned, but I love the color of your octo-hat.

    As for Xmas, I can't conceive of shopping (again) during a pandemic. I guess I just wish for us to get through the Delta variant sooner rather than later. :)

    1. That's why online shopping is awesome. One doesn't have to go anywhere, and stuff is shipped to you or the gift recipient.

  9. Glad to know it's coming along well. :-)
