We weren't lying when we talked about a knitting domino effect that occurs here in the shop. Once one of us knits something up, everyone else immediately starts casting on! As soon as Amber came in with her finished Helmet Liner for her fiance, I wanted to make one for my boyfriend who bikes back and forth to work even when its freezing outside and snowboards a lot, as well. I used the same needles and yarn but chose color 1918 Shire, instead-what can I say...we're both Lord of the Rings geeks! I forgot a few decreases on the eye section which is why the sides point out a bit. No bother, though...I'm going to sew them down with my leftover yarn and sew a button on each side. : My boyfriend is so excited that he's planning his next costume to be a ninja!
