Hat Challenge: Take 2, Now With Added List!

So, back when I first proposed my Hat Challenge way back in August, I made one big mistake: I didn't actually write down all the hats I was going to make.  I'm a person who thrives on lists.  There's this delicious satisfaction in crossing things off of lists.  They're great for future reference.  Sometimes it's hard to hold onto 6 separate ideas in your head, but it's easy on paper.  Hooray lists!

So it seems like a silly mistake to not have written a list of the hats I'm going to be making.

So for Hat Challenge! 2012, I am committing to knitting 6 hats.  Here they are, in no particular order:

1.  Little Things by Veera Välimäki, using one skein of Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light in colorway Tern (420 yards) Finished 1/15/12, actually used 210 yards.


2.  Salt Creek prototype 2 by me, using one skein of Anzula Cricket MCN in colorway Boysenberry (250 yards) ETA: Finished 1/23/12, used about 220 yards of 250.

4.  Sockhead Hat by Kelly McClure, using one skein of Madelinetosh Pashmina in colorway Chambray (360 yards) ETA: Finished 3/10/12, used about 300 yards of 360.


5.  Beaumont Tam by Jared Flood, using one skein each Fibre Company Road To China Light in colorways Peridot and Garnet (318 yards)

6.  Rikke Hat by Sarah Young, using one skein Madelinetosh Tosh Merino DK in colorway Trodden (225 yards)


All told, that's 1,503 yards

also known as

.8540 miles.

That should keep me busy for a while!

I admire your ambition. For me I have a room full of baskets filled with yarn that I want to make into things... but thats about as far as it gets. Maybe this list thing is what I should do.
