The hat is DOOM!
I knew it, I should have left well alone when I those five little words popped intp my head - "How hard can it be?"
Why didn't I leave well alone?
I finished knitting the cap part of the hat last night, it looks fantastic and I love it. This was so the colour to make a devil hat from Zhivago in the shade Ruby.
I was in my bathroom trying to put safety pins into the hat where I wanted my horns as suggested by the pattern when the phone rang. It was my mother telling me that the craft get together we go to on a Wednesday was cancelled.
Instead of picking up stitches to start knitting the first flap on the side of my hat I attempted to figure out how I was supposed to pick up stitches from the top of my finished hat - 15 in total for each horn.
I've got a friend coming to visit me this afternnoon I think I may just fling the hat at her and say fix it! At this rate I'll have a half finished hat for Friday. Devil hat is not a devil hat if it dosen't have horns - it's just a hat with flaps!
The flaps may wait, I hate I-Cord with a vengence.
I know I talked about the SNB knit along the other day and I have joined up. I can't wait to get going on it, this month (June) was the Coney Island Scarf. A little late even for me to start one now, I can't wait to see what they pick for July.
Another really cool one I'm thinking of taking up is one Cathy told me about, and I read Sharon is taking it on as well, is the UFO's Anonmoyus.
Yes, I know I have far too many UFO's it really is time for some finishing. Maybe someone will inspire me, no wait Cathy might just nag me....
Until next time,
A bona fide red head and damn proud of it.
