When it rains…

It’s raining FO’s here at the FogKnits headquarters.  After many finish free weeks, I’m suddenly finishing everything I touch.

If you recall, back in May, I started this hat but ripped it out because the ‘apple green’ mohair I was carrying as my second strand was reading yellow and I don’t like yellow.

Ugh.  Yellow?  I really wanted green so I ripped it out and changed my mohair strand.  Instead I used a lovely purple that became this hat.  These are happy dance colors!

Purple is soooooo much better.  And, now that I’m looking at this photo again, I can say with a high degree of certainty, I’ve had this color palate on my mind for a while.  LOL.

Completely unintentional and yet, certainly, not?

Anyhow.  Back to yellow.  Yuck.  Nothing good comes of yellow but I had yarn left over so, begrudgingly, why not knit the second hat. Some people don’t find yellow to be offensive.  Some people even like yellow?  Weirdos, to be sure but they are out there.

So, as I was running out the door to a music festival, I needed some easy knitting.  This hat fit the bill perfectly for a small project, with easy stitches, no fuss, just do it.  It was the no-brainer I needed and it turned out to be right choice (in spite of all that yellowness).

I cast on early in the day while I watched the Black Sheep Brass Band.  And they had super cute stickers.

Meant to be, clearly.  And by the end of the evening, I had a finished hat.

Giving this hat an interesting distinction, it was knit almost entirely standing up.  I’ve knit hats entirely on buses, while riding in cars and even on airplanes.  Always seated.  This is the first FO that was mostly standing.  I did sit for a bit to finish the last six rows, so maybe that was 5-10%.  Still, close enough for me!

And, there’s still an FO (or two) left for tomorrow!  Woo!  When it rains, it pours!  :)
