I needed a little stress-buster project. I picked up a skein of green Socos yarn the other day at Kaleidoscope, which came with a free pattern for a cute bulky hat. I started knitting it the other night while watching Wall-E for the umpteenth time with Abigail, but the cast-on was wonky so I ripped it out. Yesterday I decided to use the pattern with some blue Lion brand Thick & Quick for a hat to send to Jean. The cast-on is still wonky, but it's still a pretty good hat. I had to take a quick-and-dirty photo on the arm of my chair while multi-tasking -- watching another movie and blogging. Such is my life these days -- just a bit scattered and hectic.
