Candy Corn Anyone?

Yesterday was a knitting day! I did manage to get some laundry finished, a whole lot of TV watching accomplished (a Billy and Mandy Halloween marathon and movie...good, brainless watching for a knitting afternoon), and a candy corn hat fresh off the needles.

Once again, Cindy Styrofoam Head was a more than willing model. Here's the left side.

Here's the front. Note, she's sporting it down over her eyes with a hint of attitude.

Last, but certainly not least, is the right side.

You're probably on to me. I didn't have much to blog about so you got three views of this hat. Aren't you lucky??? If you are interested, here's the pattern: http://www.skeinsandbeans.com/candycorn.pdf

I did it in acrylic yarn and on size 8 needles for the largest size. Quick knit and a fun hat!

"SHE AIN'T GOT NO EYES!"
This is so cute! If I was 15, or so, I'd wear something like it this winter, but...since I'm older than dirt, I won't!
People might think I'm a bag lady!
If the economy continues to decline...I'll borrow it and sit in the parking lot, near the Goodwill Store...and sell toof-picks..."One at a time!"
I thought "John" did a pretty good job last night, but the "big" talkers"..."PEOPLE IN THE KNOW" thought otherwise.
I WANTED "JOHN" TO JUMP ACROSS THAT TABLE AND WIPE THAT "DING-DONG SMILING SNEAR RIGHT OFF OF O'S FACE!
But, that ain't gonna' happen.
Uh-Oh...I stomped so hard on my soapbox, I nearly fell off m'chair.
Better quit this stuff and get on with the action around here.
Love ya' mucho...Mom

You are so fun. I wish I could knit like that. Do you recommend any good books for newbies? I know the basic stitch and how to start, but I can't read a pattern.

Love and hugs to my sister in the Lord in the most beautiful part of the country.
