Don’t know what I’ve been up to. I have a couple of hats and a basket to photograph. I finished Nic’s hat and Bill’s hat. He wanted something a little crazy. I didn’t do crazy me; I did crazy him. Bill is not exactly a wild and crazy guy so making him a slouch hat in blue variegated yarn is a big thing.
I haven’t photographed Bill’s hat and I’m thinking I probably won’t but here’s Nic’s. She has some yarn left over from her purchase in Denver. I could just throw it in my stash but it doesn’t belong to me. It belongs to her so I can send it her but that would so insulting to the yarn to condemn it to a life of being unknit. It could sit in the store and do that but with the chance that someone will come along and take it. It is just cruel to be taken and then not be used without a chance of it. At least the skeins in my stash know that there is something of a chance. I mean, I just pulled the yarn from one our other trips recently. There’s always hope. I thought of making mittens but I don’t think there’s enough for a pair. I will have to think of something for her. Maybe a headband and some fingerless mitts. I just copied a pattern the wonderful Shannon turned me on to. Though there might be another skein running around. She bought four. I used one and a part of for the cowl and the hat just came off of the one the cowl was made from. I need to check downstairs. A pair of mittens may come.
Speaking of mittens, I did start the Borg Collective of 10 Pairs of Mittens. One of ten is done and the second pair is almost finished. Had some missteps at the beginning but I have ten days to get them done and then I have some pom-poms to make and another hat.
So, I guess I have been busy – did I also say I’ve worked out everyday for the past week?
Getting into the busy season – trying to stay out of the hospital. Can’t sit and knit for hours on end. But I do have to go and do some knitting now….the Borg cannot wait.
