It’s the 16th entry into the Pretty in Pink Contest! Monica has knit a hat to go into the hat box at her local hospital’s oncology center. Her hat is part superwash wool, part sock yarn, which makes me think that maybe all the wool I have in my stash could be used for this purpose instead of being forever hidden from the heads of cancer patients. I’m so afraid of making a hat that’s too scratchy… Maybe I’ll just buy some Rowan Calmer instead and play it safe. Only a week until the end of the contest! I think maybe 50 was too ambitious a goal, so I’ll be happy if we hit 20. Let’s go for 20! I have a week to knit a hat, maybe two, that means I need another two or three entries from you darlings and we’ll hit our (new) mark!
On a side note, do you notice anything that’s disappeared from the sidebar? I finished my aunt’s DNA scarf last night while watching Letterman! (I don’t usually watch, but I only get CBS and CBC and I wanted to cast off last night so I stayed up for about an hour longer than I usually do.) That’s right, my scarf and Kramer’s career, both finished at approximately the same time. It still needs to have some ends woven in and I put in a keyhole that I should reinforce with a bit of crochet, and then it needs to be blocked… Ok, so maybe my scarf won’t be finished for another week or so, depending on whether I’m EVER going to find something to use for a blocking board. We shall see. As soon as it’s reborn as an FO, my cherished knititionnaires, my beloved proletariknit, my precious digknitaries, you will be the first thing it sees.
On a side side note, my breakfast this morning was cinnamon toast. Here is my recipe for cinnamon toast:
Eve’s Delicious Low-Calorie Cinnamon Toast
2 slices of lightly-toasted bread
Spread butter onto the toast. If it’s too cold because you live in Canada or somewhere equally chilly, put it in the microwave on defrost for a few minutes. Sprinkle the brown sugar on the toast. Sprinkle the cinnamon on the toast. Put into the toaster oven for a few minutes. Pull it out of the toaster and arrange on a decorative plate. Munch.
