My intense desire to not get started on another big project has yielded this. A friend from work is having a baby and they are not finding out the sex. So, this will be just a generic baby hat once it is done. I
was to lazy to try again actually like how it pooled on the ribbing. There is a bit more of the pooling on the body of the hat, but we'll see how it finishes up.
I have ripped out the heel on the Jaywalkers and joined the new ball that I found that matches pretty well, but because I desperately want to knit without a pattern, I have been working on just the hat.
I have a quick summer tank that I want to do, but I am not sure that I have quite enough yarn for the pattern I have picked. We'll see how it swatches. I am hoping that my gauge is off and that I can drop some of the st st areas down to fewer stitches. Hopefully, it might be enough to do it.
Today Caleb and I went to Wal-mart and got this. I am inordinately excited. Granted, we rent our apartment, but we have white/cream carpet in 3 rooms including the living room. With a 3 year old, it gets a lot of foot traffic and looks pretty grungy. My choices were to rent every time I wanted to clean the carpets or buy. As my time is precious to me and I hate being beholden to someone else, we broke down and purchased it. If we use it just 8 times, it will be paid for. Not a problem. I did the bedrooms today and they both look so much better. (I refuse to show before and after pics because it will just emphasize how slovenly I can be.)
