So, I got off work today, and ate and then picked up DaBaby who came in my room and handed me the yarn she had picked for her hat and said, “here, you need to make my hat now”. And then she climbed up on the bed to watch as if a hat were a fairly instantaneous thing, such as the miracles promised my most acne medicines. But hats, like pimple reduction, do take at least a few hours to achieve. I guess I can show you the yarn and a row or two of ribbing though, right?
Work continues on the sparkly blue hat. I knit on it for a few minutes each day, except for Sunday when I got just about sick of still doing ribbing and so I finished that. Does anyone know how much fingering weight yarn it takes to make a hat 22 inches by 10.5 inches? Is one ball enough? Not a big Opal sized ball, but a regular smallish ball.
I’m in the home stretch of the body of the shawl I am making as well, having completed 260 or the projected 320 rows. I have to find out the relative size of the recipient to be sure of that, and the person I need to speak to about it is to sick to be coherent just now.
