new hat.

how boring is it over on the internal medicine side of my work? well, i knit a hat. granted, it was an easy hat, but damn.

i probably could have finished the scarf i was supposed to be working on, but i got going on this hat and wanted it done. it's light pink and grey - brain colors. i need a yarn needle to finish it off, but that'll be easy enough. pics will be posted when i'm totally done with it.

i think everyone is getting hats for birthdays.

i want to get dreammadeflesh a job over here. i think he'd make a good tech, and i could probably avoid working with him most of the time. not that i wouldn't want to work with him, but there's the ethical conflict.
this is my bright idea for the week, anyway. that and cutting bangs. i like all my pictures of myself with bangs better than pictures i take now. i'm thinking this long seventies hair is an experiment that proves i like my hair better the other way.

i have a final today. i don't want to take it. school's done after this, though.

i think i need a river trip. soon. now.

you must see the hat ...

So here's the hat i made ...

and i'm making the same one for michael, except charcoal grey with a thin blue stripe. He better like it. this is what i've got so far.

It amazes me that i can take this flat piece of knitted fabric and make a couple of exceedingly simple stitches to shape it into a hat. sewing it up didn't even require the yarn needle i thought i'd need, i was able to just weave the yarn through. easy peasy. i'm just amazed that i can make anything at all.

my next project should be to learn intarsia. I'm scared.

francescamuffin wants to learn to knit too, and i want to teach her. give her something to do while she's babysitting celebrity kids.

The bird tore a chunk out of my hand this morning. I'm trying to knit this hat without getting blood or neosporin on it. it's slowing me down.

I'm hungry, and all i have is ingredients.
