I have an inch or two of plain knitting with the main color and then I’ll start the decreases for the top of the hat. Haven’t decided how long I want the hat to be so I’ll play it by ear.
The Hitchhiker scarf is coming along nicely. I like patterns that have easily memorized repeats. This scarf starts with two stitches with increase on both sides for the setup section. Then, it’s just an eight row repeat in garter stitch with a sneaky little purl stitch thrown in a few times before binding off a few stitches for the ‘teeth’ portion. The right side rows have increases at the beginning and it’s growing rather quickly. I make sure my increases are done in a relaxed gauge so the top edge doesn’t bind.
We got a slow start to our morning and the sun was already well up over the trees when I got moving. I opened the blinds and saw a gorgeous yucca bloom and went out to capture a shot of it. So pretty with the sun shining on it!
It’s noon. I’ve already been to town to pick up our groceries and bring home breakfast croissants for our breakfast. Brad brewed coffee while I was gone. I’ve started my laundry, probably five loads need to be done today and I’ll be caught up. The fridge and the pantry are well stocked for the better part of two weeks. Tomorrow we both see the chiropractor and other than that we are enjoying being at home while Brad’s back calms down. It may have all started with his knee and the chiropractor is helping it a lot. If he can just get past the blooming muscle spasms!
