The Knit Bikini

Ha! I made a bikini top, completely underestimating how much string it takes to cover boobs. Hilarious, though. I might try one that you can actually use. Or someone can. I mean, it's summer. That would be freakin' awesome!

A gentleman at work gave me a needlepoint ornament today, one that's green and yellow, with "Jesus" in nearly unrecognizable block letters you have to look at to find. It's very cool and going up in the sewing room.
Working on the gorgeous hat. Nearly done. Then on to mittens. I have a pattern for them knit on straight needles. I don't know....

The Booth

Ugh. I don't know what's going on, except I am knitting. Finished a beaut of a boy set, so pretty and soft. Started a blue and white striped stocking hat for a little boy. And then, who knows.

Rainbow Hat

I started on the Rasta hat and what surprises me is that I don't have a lot of little bits in my yarn basket. Oh WELL!
I am going to collect things to take to Linda for the booth- including knits, which I may or may not reduce in price. I need to take Debbi M a boy set, and I happen to have a cute one in green....we'll see. I love her, she's been at work longer than I and was one of those people that was immediately friendly, no warming up period (which most people in a high turnover place require....why bother to learn names if they aren't going to stay?)
I have a knitting book in my basket which cost 35 cents. there are some cool patterns in there, a gorgeous tasseled stocking hat for one. I love novelty hats...and Revelry as the coolest assortment. Anyone can make a knit a cap. But the weird ones...they are special. Like me! Short bus special.

New Things

I tried a new way to decrease on Randy's hat and I am very happy with it. I did knit 2 purl2 after the white detail and then decreased the purls, then the knits, then tied it off and it looks very nice. I can't wait to see if it fits him. It ought to, damn thing went down to my chin.
I am going to start a rainbow rasta had now, which will be completed with black braided yard dreads. I think it's funny, and I always like to try new things. Then maybe another ear type hat, though I saw, on the web, a hat with a crochet beard attached that was awesome. I need to get that on here. AWESOME I say!
I need to sew, but somehow I don't feel the required intensity. Might be easier to just make the rasta hat.

Working on a black and white hat for Randy, and those two colors look so good together. I hope it fits. It's big, but then I'm knitting it on size 6!
Shaped up to be muggy and gray today. I am feeling restless and incomplete, like I should be getting busy and there's nothing I want to get busy with. And there's plenty I could be doing! Believe me! This place is a mess. Bug hasn't helped a bit, rearranging things.

Wig Heads

I have 4 of them in here, all wearing something. I washed the pink wig to dispell antique store cooties and should do the black one. But I've been busy, knitting, working, paying bills. I like it very much! Ha.

Stocking Hat

I am delighted with the stocking hat for Tabby's niece. I would have loved it when I was 5- I had a long, long hat my cousin stole, or rather, switched with one of her dirty old ones. Mom wouldn't even let me wear the switched hat, tossing it on the train. Ha!
My wig heads are all sitting around with wigs and hats on, Marie, the one I drew the face on, has the Marie wig. Ugh. Work is what I need to be doing, and thankfully I am able to do so without too much stress. I am glad of it, as my mood was suffering the last few days. Sadness and misery. I hate that.
But it's not my fault.

Hats and Such

Linda has offered to split rent on my booth and take care of it while I just make hats. I think that's a fair deal. I love Linda and she's much better at decorating and frankly. I just want to knit. I brought my heads home and they are all around me, wearing wigs- which barely made it out of there alive- and hats.
Bitter, bitter days. Maybe things will get better.
