Idol is my guilty pleasure. I got addicted to it when I was living in a remote area of the Northern Territory last year (not so much to do there...), and was stunned this year to discover a contestant who sings songs I love.
I knitted up the Hot Head pattern for Mr Crumpet, but the yarn I had was thin and had to be double-stranded. I ended up using navy (spun with a lighter blue), maroon (spun with greens and blues), dark green (with coloured speckles throughout), and a combination of brown and black. It came out really well and he loves it. I'll take a picture later to post.
