There is a Knit along happening for the pattern, and since I had nothing on the needles I decided to cast on last night.
I cast on with this yarn. Handspun singles.
This is how much I’ve done so far.
However, I’m beginning to suspect that I won’t have enough yarn to finish the hat. I’ll knit a few more pattern repeats to confirm my suspicions, but in preparation I’ve pulled commercially produced yarn out of the stash just in case…
On the agenda after Gorgeous Girl goes to bed tonight is spending some time on her very hungry caterpillar quilt.
Gorgeous Girl’s school employs security guards. They watch the car park and help guide cars during drop off and pick up times. Others patrol the grounds of the school at night, they monitor entrance to the school during the day and accompany the children and teachers when they go on excursion.
Today I was very grateful for the security guards. About halfway to school the car started making a terrible noise. There was no safe place to stop, so I babied the car along to the school hoping that whatever it was wasn’t too serious. In the car park I got down on my hands and knees and discovered a stick wedged in the wheel well. It had been dragging on the road making the noise. I tried to pull it out myself, but didn’t have the strength. Fortunately the security guards managed to remove it for me (along with lots of advice from some of the fathers who were picking up their kids) and Gorgeous Girl and I were able to drive home without sounding like the car was falling apart.
