the end is nigh

It is the last day of November! I didn’t feel as much franticness about my posts this year but I also let it go when I didn’t manage to post on some days. Today was a pretty nice Sunday in spite of, or perhaps because of, the rain. We definitely need the rain but I didn’t need to manage to go to the Farmer’s Market during the worst of it like I did. I tried to capture a picture of the rain but that is hard to do without a fancy camera.


I did capture the beginning of the hat for my niece. 2×2 ribbing is so exciting!

And I finally blocked another hat.

Red is hard to capture too. I think you can see the stitch pattern better in the black and white filter.

I started this hat for a friend undergoing cancer treatment but it turns out she doesn’t need chemo so she doesn’t need chemo caps. I gave her a silk cowl instead and am going to give this hat to a friend’s sister who is collecting for a cancer resource center that needs manly chemo caps. I don’t know that this hat is particularly manly but it isn’t particularly feminine. If I can manage it, I will knit another for her before my friend goes to visit her sister.

Happy December folks! I will see you 11/1/2015! Kidding, I hope, I hope to keep posting occasionally but we all know how well that has been going.
