Yesterday I tried and tried to write a post. Honest I did. But Blogger had other ideas. My guess is the worker bees were busy updating code behind the scenes and that's why every time I tried I got a 'Blogger Unavailable' error message. So much for my plans.
So here's the post you should have gotten yesterday. I am a knitting machine, cranking out hats like I've got a deadline or something. Wait -- I do have a deadline of sorts -- Fall shows. I finished knitting the second hat using the Jarbo yarn I bought Saturday after getting my hair cut ~~
I called this one Tutti Frutti because it reminded me of the gum I used to buy when I was a kid and would ride my bike up Gratiot Avenue to the party store (whoops -- don't tell Mom!). Here's a view of the top of the hat, using the double D decrease again ~~
Never one to be idle, I cast on another hat using another skein I bought Saturday of Malabrigo Chunky Wool ~~
I had this much finished when I tried to post last night ~~
I finished the hat on my bus ride home from work tonight but don't have a photo to prove it. My knitting friend Harriet will have to vouch for me. I cast on another hat tonight with yet another skein of Jarbo and should finish it tomorrow evening so maybe, just maybe I'll show it to you then!
I am keeping a low profile, fearful that Niecy Nash will show up at my door, hearing I have the messiest house in America ~~
I know, I know -- how could this happen??!! Chaos has taken hold of my craft room, once again. It's disturbing, isn't it? I've got to get a handle on it this week! As I get closer to show time it only gets worse. I knit a skein from this cube, then that cube, and what the heck should I do with all the scraps? I'm constantly auditioning yarn for a project. That's why it's so great to find new yarn that screams 'knit me first'. Yes, I realize that's not a good reason. I'm finishing up knitting the newest acquisitions -- kind of the
FIFO LIFO (had it wrong the first time, must have been the Stella) rule from accounting, if you know what I mean. OK, that's a stretch. I realize that, too.
Have a great week!
