Tag Archive: Hat



This is what I’ve been spending most of my day on:

Oh, and when my brain didn’t work I started these:

Both for charity.

When sitting got too much and it was gorgeous outside, Kali and I took a zoomie walk/run around the property. She’d run ahead and hide and jump out with what looked like puppy-laughs and I walk-ran to keep up with her to find her. It was so much fun. I doubt I hit a thousand steps, but it was more than I would have had in the bad temps of last week. I hope we get better at this so I can improve and lengthen our walks.

This What Day Is It Anyway I think is Tuesday. Cinco de Mayo/Taco Tuesday was plastered all over FaceBook. But I don’t spend a lot of time over there. So in my day, I lost the day many times. I took a fibro-flare seriously over the weekend and all day Monday. So I missed my writers’ group. The reason is that the pain was too much to keep my brain working. I had even started my prompt a few times. I knew where I was headed with it. But then I couldn’t hold my laptop without it hurting. I hate fibro for its way of deceiving me. I’m not sure about whether or not it isn’t the flu or covid or… It is only when it gives up that I know it was a flare. It was worse when I was working. I couldn’t tell, how do you call your boss and say, I don’t know if I can work today. It feels only tired, hard to wake up. It is only when it hurts so bad that I know I can’t be at work. It is only the aftermath of one step too far that lets me know. Remember exercise that you do 10 steps today, and increase to 20 tomorrow? I used to be able to make big increases and improve lots every day. No way can I do that now. 10 today 4 tomorrow, zeros and back to 10. If not flare. It is hard to know when it is too much. I always feel like such the ‘Fairweather friend’ in that suddenly I’m not there where I wish I were. If it were just pain, I could do it. But suddenly there are no words. Then the next day you wonder if that were true. Did it really hurt that much? And how long was I out? Well, shoot! I missed a weekend and Monday. So here is Tuesday.

Yay! Finished Friday!


I’ll be more talkie tomorrow.

 

This happened.

 

I took Kali outside. Stood on the porch for half a moment. Then suddenly something made me yelp. I don’t know what it was. I didn’t see anything fly or crawl away. But touching anything feels like cactus on my arm. So I am trying not to hold my arm where it touches. I’m not dying. It hardly hurts. Just uncomfortable. Wish I could find the critter who did it. Revenge sounds good!

Finished Friday


Hat number two with same Caron Simply Soft acrylic yarn. Soft Pink, Orchid, and black. It is a soft yarn. But I don’t think that it is a good sock or slipper yarn as it isn’t very stretchy. Because of that, I chose to use the e-wrap knit stitch. The brim was a garter stitch which is one row of knit, one row of purl. The rest just the e-wrap mentioned before. I made this one the same KB white loom, 72 pegs, fine-gauge that I used for the hat just before this one. I’ve started another with the black yarn hoping to make a hat for a little boy. I hope I can finish by tomorrow.

I haven’t decided whether or not to make pom-poms those the girly hats look like they might be even cuter with them. I’m not a fan of pom-poms but I love making them on the little tools for them.

I get to see the family tomorrow! I can hardly wait! Snow is expected so praying for a safe drive.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend. Keep safe and healthy!

Not Quite Finished


By the end of the night, I will have finished this next hat. But I don’t have time to blog and knit to get the job on either properly. So here it is on the loom.

I do wish the pretty colors showed up better. They are all shiny. That is lavender, black, and pink. I’ll describe the process and name the yarn tomorrow. I need to get it done.

I hope you are all having a great Thursday!

Tuesday’s Ta Da


Finished. A convertible hat. Hehe.

 

Caron, Simply Soft, Soft Pink, Orchid, Black. on the KB Fine Gauge, 72 peg loom. The white one. The brim is four by four, rib stitch. The rest is e-wrapped. The camera on my phone just doesn’t pick up the pretty pastel colors. This one is a gift for a friend.

 

Another Sh-h-h But Finished! Yay!


I love this sort of scrappy hat. The colors called to me and I just knitted them in.

Oh, the yarn is just acrylic. I had very little turquoise so I used it sparingly. This is knitted on the white KB (72 peg) fine gauge.  One-by-one brim. then according to the tension, I used the flat-knit, u-knit, or e-wrap. I used the Russian join to change colors. It turned out kind of small for my head but I think it will fit a friend. Sh-h-h! (Sorry for blurry or dark pictures. I blame the photographer-me.)

Satisfying Sunday


Finished today:

 

As you can see, I used the green Knifty Knitter. Which made the hat for a smaller adult than me. Or Teen. I made the brim and a few of the bumpy-outy spots using the e-wrap/purl combo that makes a one-row garter stitch. Then flat knit stitch. This was of scraps blending two strands and changing out to another combo as I got the notion. Just in time for the Meeting tomorrow. 🙂

Finished Friday


Finally a hat for me!

And, yes that us The Walkin Dead season 6 in the background.

Oh, that’s a KB, small gauge, 80 peg, adult size, orange loom. Two-by-two, knit, purl, brim. The yarn, Bernat Pipsqueak Stripes, is so soft and fluffy, you can’t see the stitches. The rest is flat knit stitch. I made it big enough to fold up the brim. Can’t wait to wear it!


I had hoped to be finished with these two project by today. Oh, well. I love the soft yarn, Bernard Pipsqueak. I’m making a small adult hat. The other is a slipper sock of Sugar and Cream cotton purple for cuff and for the rest of the sock a combination of blues and purples. Ah, well, maybe next week I will be finished with these.


Transcendent

I wonder if the opposite of transcendent is a nap? There were so many things to rise above today that all I could do was nap.

The story from yesterday about hubby’s fall and messed up arm? Yeah, well the doctor says his shoulder is broken and has two good sized chips. Trouble is we still don’t know if surgery will be what he needs. All we know is that he is in horrible pain and is helpless on many counts. Thank goodness for Vicoden. We won’t know until Monday or Tuesday what the next step would be. Meanwhile, the two trips to town wore us both down. Even though I don’t go, the trip requires an early wake-up. I needed to get up and help him get ready to do.

I feel badly not going. But the trip kills me. I mentioned that before. But if he has to go to Portland at the other end of the state, how would I manage that? And would there be any accommodations for me? And who will take care of the separation-anxiety- grandpup?

And we got more snow today that has enough time to melt a bit and then became more ice. It is impossible to walk outside our home. Poor Kali is on her own for those very quick trips for relief.

So I stayed inside and made another hat:

And then all the world shattering events today. Is there a possibility to be transcendent? Now that it is 10 PM all I can think is when can I go to sleep?
