I'm knitting a hat- something I do when I am not feeling like knitting anything else. I am searching for the next big obsession and not really finding it. I will though. I usually do!

Yarn Overs

I am learning to be more comfortable with the dreaded yarn over. I am still not great at it but I keep trying. Made a lime green scarf to go with some lime green leg warmers, as one should. I plan on a hat, but I'm working on a sort of lace beanie. I have one in dark red right now I'm doing, and we'll see how that pans out. I like the principle. October used to be one of my favorite times of the year but I am just not feeling it right now. I wish I could be happy and excited, but ow well! I will keep on knitting, and maybe that will help.

Green Scarf

Because I do not have enough shit to drape around my neck, I am knitting a green scarf to go with some leg warmers I made last year...though I can't really recall where leg warmers are right now and I am not sure I would ever wear them. I also have another idea for a hat--skidding halt--not an original idea, but one I haven't tried yet. A simple beanie with no rib stitch band. I think my knitting pisses off everyone I'm related to or anyone who is around me very long. Don't much care. I figure it's the only thing that keeps me even marginally sane. Being pulled between people just leaves me feeling stretched out and miserable. Ugh why are people so mean? I am not even remotely looking forward to work. Just not feelin' it y'all.

I went on a ruffled scarf spree- I think I made 6 of them. Then I was given some yarn by Liz for a hat and scarf for Mary. I am probably half finished with the hat, and then of course I'm making a baby set for my friend Jean, and I have the hat made for that....of course, hats have never been the problem. I can knit a hat in a couple hours. But, the booties and scarves are troublesome. I do think my knitting drives people crazy, as it is one of those things that looks so fidgety and weird. You know who you are. So I say to hell with 'em. I'm off today and I am taking mom out and about. It's a beautiful October day out there and maybe it will be nice. We shall see.
