When I was at this point I was supposed to begin decreasing. The problem I encountered was that eventually my cable was too long for the number of stitches. I wasn't worried as I had began my sock knitting on double pointed needles so off I went to find the right sized DPNs, except I didn't have the right size.
Well, that sure didn't deter me, I just used what I had. It did not take long before I had completed all of the decreases and pulled the remaining stitches together and the major part of the hat was done. Then it was time to pick up stitches for the "floppy" brim and finish the hat
When I was getting ready to start a new row on my Spring Bloom sweater I noticed the colors lined up on the needle. Isn't that a beautiful rainbow? And the colors in this picture are true.
I did laugh as I put this on the mannequin. It is a male one and it occurred to me that I might need to bring a female one into the studio if I am going to knit garments.
And this was a surprise today. I received this beautiful hand made owl mug from our son and daughter-in-law. I love well done hand made items and this fits that criteria. Thank you Jessica and Todd, thank you, thank you.
And now, I hope everyone in the US has a great and safe July 4th. And I would that everyone would take time to appreciate living in a free country and see it as a real privilege. Gari
