Today is Day One. Grrr.
And here is my new BFF. So glad I bought the 12-pack at Sam's a couple months ago.
In an effort to find a smidgen of gratitude in the hell of having a cold, I'll just say this:
I'd rather have a cold when it's cold outside and I don't feel like doing anything outdoors anyway, than have one in the summer, when I not only want to be outdoors, but frequently need to mow or weed or reap or whatever.You can quote me if you like. Heh.
Today would be an excellent day to knit and watch movies. I've been working on the Cabled Beret from Vogue Knitting's Caps & Hats. (The book is one of their On the Go volumes. You might have to be a Ravelry member to view the link.). The cabled strip is done. I want to block it before I pick up the stitches for the ribbed band, because I think it's a little narrow. So glad I decided to use wool, which should stretch nicely.
While the cabled strip is drying, I can start on an earflap cap for my granddaughter. She picked out the yarn and the pattern, and I really can't think of a better project to work on right now. I need a pair of slippers – I tossed my felted clogs when the holes got too big and too numerous for comfort – but my Crocs are a pretty good substitute.
So. If you need me, I'll be on the couch in the den, knitting needles in hand, working on a pink-and-purple hat. It will be a nice change from all the true-blue Democrat blue I've been using lately!
