A few minutes ago, I finished my Crazy Hat #5, made from a purple/gray crazy ball. It’s fun to reminisce about the various yarns: the brim was a thrift store sweater I unravelled (9 years ago!), the light gray was one of my first hand spun yarns, the plum is leftover Mad Tosh from the Wee Girl’s Tiny Tea Leaves cardigan, I have no idea about the purple, and the top was leftover from a Cairn hat.
Although this is Crazy Hat #5, it’s #7 overall in my hat knitting for the Larkin Street Youth Services. I added two hats that I thought I had knitted for myself, but never, ever wear, that someone else might be happy to own. This brings me to almost half of my goal of 15 hats in 2015! I think I’ll take a break for a bit and cast on some different projects to spice things up.
I may not have mentioned this next project, because it’s not that interesting. It’s a pair of socks for the Wee Girl. This is stash exchange yarn, and I’m not that thrilled with it (it’s splitty, the color isn’t fantastic), which keeps me from wanting to work on these. Therefore, they’re going pretty slowly! She’ll be happy with them, though, and that keeps me going– slowly, slowly, but surely.
The sunsets in San Francisco have been lovely these days. I saw so many different, amazing versions in my Facebook feed tonight that made me wish I had more of a western rather than northwestern view from my kitchen window! Although seeing the sun set behind the Golden Gate Bridge isn’t that bad. And check out that fog coming in! This view makes washing the dishes less painful, I’ll tell ya.
