Since we talked last week, I wound yarn for a couple new hats.
The next morning I cast on and set out for work. There were some diversions along the way. I worked on the ribbing as I sat on a stoop.
I started the stockinette body of the hat next to a jukebox.
I went back to the bus for the ride home.
The next morning, back to work again! The bus was hideous though, I had to get off. Might as well knit on a park bench along the way.
and then I went home again! Isn’t commuting exciting?
And finally the hat is done! Now to embellish it. I started with fish but it turns out sea weed is the only thing I’m good at drawing. I tried lots of different stuff. It all needs refinement though.
I would definitely be an art school dropout, assuming I could even make it through the admissions process. I’m gonna keep working on my fish. Instead, I decided on Golden Gate Bridge attempt #2.
That’s when picking yarn got complicated. I narrowed it to three choices.
A case could be made for all three, even after doing the black & white test.
I’ve made my decision. I definitely didn’t go with the safe choice. Hopefully it works out. Really though, All this non-knitting but knitting-adjacent stuff has me dying to pick up the needles…my Rockefeller is looking good!
Yay Knitting! I’m picking up the needles in 3…2…1…
