While knitting this hat I kept humming "Oh baby, baby, I'm so in love with you!" because it was a truly fun knit. A couple relaxing evenings with your needles will complete this hat.
The Crown Of The Hat!
I love the simple elegance of this hat.
It's difficult to capture the true beauty of this hat with my camera on a cloudy Vermont afternoon but it is one of my favorite patterns.
I've completed several other projects that I have yet to post. Those needles are just a clicking away. The "Sally Bag" is completed but for the felting and lining.
I had a tooth extraction late Thursday that did not go very well. The dentist was having difficulty and ended up hitting all my upper front teeth full force with the equipment. He reassured me that nothing was chipped or broken. I was then informed that my jaw was ready to collapse and that he needed to do a bone graft which is normally $400. He said he would not charge me which left me wondering exactly what happened.
I was told to take it easy for a few days, not to lift anything heavy (that means laundry baskets, right?). I was told I would feel some discomfort. The first day was just plain pain....
I had an excuse to eat plenty of ice cream and pudding (tapioca). It's back to work tomorrow!!!
