Fish HaT. cRaZy, SwImMy FiSh HaT!


I know that I've been neglecting my blog horribly. I haven't forgotten it.. I've just been well busy with the rest of my life... and will likely continue to be sporadic for at least the next two weeks... after that.. my life might get more normal or the weather warm enough to make outdoor photography more pleasant.

Our Science Fair was a sucess and there were a lot of great projects. The kids were great, the judges were great and my coworkers were great.... and now we are off to the regionals in a week (part of why I'm going to be busy). So, wish us luck.

As for the hat... I'm in love.. it was a bit tedious to knit.. its all stockingette stitch... but I got to try some new skills.. Short row shaping, picking up stitches in the middle of the fabric, sewing seams and adding eyes. Its a comfy, stretchy hat. The pattern is available online at http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEwinter08/PATTfishy.php. I think I'm going to do one in Cascade 220 - the colours lend themselves more to crazy fish hats... I want something that screams tropical.

Anywho... I'm still in running full tilt mode and I'd better not lose too much momentum... I just have more things to do that hours in the day. I was actually vaguely bitter about losing an hour to daylight savings time... I wanted that hour... it wasn't fair of them to take it awy and much as I liked having the extra hour back in the fall.
