The Knitting Machine Strikes Again

I finished my hat! It's a modified version of the Felicity hat which is very hipster but with a bit of my own style thrown in, and it only took me 3 days to make! I used sizes 5 and 7 circular needles for the hat and instead of purling the first round for the brim to roll up, I knit 13 rounds of seed stitching to make a cool design. All-in-all, I think it turned out very well! Especially since this is the yarn I tried to use for the two failed hats I mentioned in a previous post. Third time really is a charm!
Also, I splurged and bought eye shadow in a new, funky color, which happens to match my hat. Normally I don't venture to try new eye shadows, but I saw the idea in the April issue of InStyle Magazine (part of my journey to dress and look my age) and decided to give it a whirl. Just apply dark blue eyeliner thickly to upper and lower lids, smudge it with a brush, apply Revlon's Venetian Blue eyeshadow over the eyeliner, slap on some mascara and voila! A new look in seconds. Score. Here's some pics so check me out. No, seriously, check me out. [Thais link takes you to where that exact quote is said on the page; a website I used to frequent in high school and a specific quote I use to this day. It's pretty funny if you have some time to kill, but has nothing to do with make up.]
Until next time...

I love the hat and the new eye look equally, but I'm too lazy to try either! Ha ha!
