Amazing things happened when I started going through patterns for the pattern swap. First I found the ultimate hat. I guess I’ve told pretty much everyone that I sleep in a hat and wear a hat a lot to ward off AC chills on my holey head. (left over burr holes from subdural hematoma surgery). Anyway, my head gets cold and hurts! So—hats!
In the process of hunting for patterns to share with swappers I found Judy Gibson’s lacy sleep hat and started it immediately. I just happened to be working with crochet cotton for bookmarks so I decided to use it for the hat. It should be light weight and soft. BTW Judy also designed the String of Hearts Bookmark. Small world!
I also found a pattern for sock yarn squares. OH WOW, do I have sock yarn! When I considered the fact that squares are portable, quick, and have many uses, it was a done deal. THEN, I found a KnitPicks pattern for a hat using sock yarn. I think we should do this pattern swap thing at least once a month!!
I finished my first String of Hearts and it is pictured here with the lovely bookmark sent to me by Kim my swap partner. Thanks so much Kim!! I love it! Knitting is always best when shared with friends. It is so much fun to see the patterns other knitters choose to send to the next knitting buddy.
Macy and Max have been bugging me today. They are working in the office and decided they wanted lunch at 11:15 this morning. These are the faces I was subjected to for a half hour.
They didn’t move except that Max left to gather a few toys. I think he was considering trading for an early lunch.
Life is good.
