This pattern was so much fun. In between installing four new light fixtures, installing a new thermostat, rebuilding a door frame, grocery shopping, and school clothes shopping for five boys, I managed to knit up a baby hat for a college roommate that is pregnant with her second daughter. There was so much left over, that I will knit up another hat next weekend. That one with a white hat with pink flower. The Addi Turbos rocked! I didn't think that they would really make any difference, but they did. I would have to say they are nothing short of amazing. I transfered them onto the SB Quicksilvers and it felt like I was knitting with chalk.
