I finished my first Connor Cap — a beret for my daughter. What do you think?
Great, now I can’t remember how to insert the picture. I hope the day gets better than this.
Whew. How come every time free software gets updated it gets harder to use?
If one hat is done it’s time to cast on for the next. At the Connor Caps group on Ravelry I’ve been getting to see people’s finished hats, and we have group members representing twelve states and three countries, but since I have only seen the one hat that came off my very own needles I’m unjustifiably paranoid that we won’t get enough hats. Knitch has a copy of the flyer, as does The Sow’s Ear (I think), and I’ve been emailing them out to folks who are going to get their knitting groups in on the deal.
But I suspect I won’t see much in the way of other people’s hats until after we get back from our travels at Thanksgiving. That will certainly build suspense into the project. Will we have five? Will we have five hundred?
I’d better ignore the worries and get started on Hat Two.
There’s plenty of other things to do — finish the stocking, complete some other Secret Holiday Knitting, and do something, anything, even a couple of stitches on my NaKniSweMo project. It’s so off the radar it’s not funny.
I could also work out. My husband and I got a new digital scale last week and weighed ourselves. I was aghast that I weighed something I have never weighed before without being quite pregnant or very recently pregnant. Um, the baby is two and a half and I’m sitting and eating too much. So, I’m trying to get moving again. This morning on the Nordic Track I decided I could only let myself listen to podcasts while I was actually exercising. And I do love my Brenda Dayne and David Reidy and WhoCast and High Fiber Diet. So.
From last week to this week I lost exactly one pound, and I don’t want to see it again. Bye bye!
Connor starts his chemo/radiation regimen today. Send him strong thoughts!
