Remember how I said I was going to work nonstop on my Vixynn sweater? I have grand plans of having it finished before the 9th of January. Well, I did work quite a bit on it yesterday. In fact, I have now joined it to be working in the round. Things were moving along so well and then this happened.
My DIL is a dear person and does not ask much of me. Her mom is also a great knitter. I asked if she had asked her mom and she had. I don't know what her mom said. I would imagine her mom declined since she is visiting here from another state and probably does not have the necessary needles and other supplies to make this.
Then I asked the fatal question: "When do you need it" The answer was "Whenever you finish it. It is cold at work with the garage doors open". My DIL works a second job as a bar tender/server for a small place. They keep all the doors open so it is a 99% open air place. Yes, once the sun goes down it gets quite chilly here.
The next fatal question was: "what color do you want it?". Answer; "Black". UGH! We all know how much I LOVE working with black yarn.............not. I went into my stash and found a skein of black yarn her mom had given to me last year. Fingers crossed I will have enough to make the hat. The hat calls for 120-180 yards and this skein has 163 yard (if it was full and I have no idea if much was used from it). It feels full so I have my fingers crossed I have enough. If not............I do have some other black yarn that will work with it.
At 9pm I started the hat and managed to get 2 rows of ribbing completed before I finally decided I needed to go to bed and start fresh today. Well, that is, after I do some laundry, and make menus for the next couple of weeks. One nice thing about hats, they normally only take a couple of days to complete. Hopefully this one will be no different.
Until next time.......................................................
