60°. Brrr! I hope you are in warmer temperatures than us here in the South Bay Area.
I was able to finally finish this baby beanie yesterday:
I used a size 5, 9″ circ which affects my hands Continental-wise so I threw for the knits and purls. This style of knitting takes me longer to knit and in truth, this hat was more of a car or travel project.
I was stumped on naming this project so I named it Atlantis Slouch. The yarn is Knit Picks Chroma
Worsterd Worsted in Atlantis. The pattern is Susan B. Anderson’s Modern Rib Hat. This is the baby size. It ‘s seems big for a newborn who will be born in April, but I hope he will get some use out of it. I probably could have cast on six less stitches. And you know what? I actually like the reverse side more.
I wrapped it up and brought it to Princess Jellybean’s school. However, the first grade teacher wasn’t there today. I passed it along to the secretary who’ll place it in her mailbox. Oh well, but at least she’ll get a nice surprise Monday morning right?
The ham shanks are almost done boiling. I’m making a double batch of jook today for our crew to enjoy. Nothing like comfort food on cold days.
What project of any medium have you finished lately and what food evokes comfort for you?
