This morning I started knitting the new hat I created last week in taupe heather. It's what I want to knit on my way to work and I always make sure I'm at the beginning of a project. You never know when the métro will stop and don't want to run out of knitting project. It happened once and I'm prepared now! I also wanted to get past the needle change after the ribbed section so I wouldn't have to carry both needles in my bag.

As usual, Balou was right beside me while I knit. You can see she's on top of the laptop. Now she's beside the laptop as I write this. She's been sticking around me so much the last few weeks; it's funny and a pain at times. When she stretches out and ends up either on top of the laptop or my mouse, a lot of funny things start happening! Pop-ups! Windows closing!
Here's what the finished new hat looks like. This one was knit with burgundy yarn.

I'm thinking I will have to start giving names to the items I knit. Calling it the "new hat" won't last long until I have another "new hat" in the works. How do you go about choosing a name?
