Morning chores. Knit hat. Feed children. Knit hat. Laundry. Knit hat. Feed children again. Knit hat. Make dinner. Knit hat. Eat. Knit. Sleep. Wake up. Knit more. I think you get the picture. Jason is going backpacking tomorrow and requested a hat to keep his head warm up amongst those 12-14,000 foot peaks. Of course I was happy to do it. Even happier that I was finally able to get the ribbing at the bottom right. I do know how to do a rib stitch, but on those double pointed needles, with several tries casting on, 96 stitches! Not something I want to take out and retry over and over again! So I'm pretty pleased with it. This is only my third hat, and when I tell people I am using double pointed needles instead of circular needles they look at me like I'm crazy. Well, I'm sure I am, or silly at the least. I can prove the silliness... in true Waldorf knitting style I had to make myself a little rhyme as I did the decreases... "one and two, together me and you, one and two, together me and you." Go ahead, laugh. It helped me! (And now I notice in the picture it looks like there is a little hole at the bottom, but really there is not.)
In other exciting news... the hollyhocks are blooming!
Oh flowers, you make me so very happy.
