Today I:
  • had cereal and coffee for breakfast
  • had a banana for Second Breakfast
  • am eating leftover pizza with white sauce, ricotta dollops, artichoke hearts, olives, basil, and mushrooms for lunch (it's rough)

Pink Ribbed Beanie

Pattern: My own.

Size: Small (20" circumference)

Yarn: Cascade 220 knit up with US #7 dpns

I am not really happy with this hat, for two reasons. #1 is the crown. I was too intellectually lazy this weekend to think of a clever way to decrease it, and it's pretty obvious. #2 is that while Cascade 220 is very nice yarn, it was uncomfortable to knit. This may be because I was using US #7s right after using US #5s for days.

I made a mitten with the remaining yarn, but I'm not going to show a picture of it just yet, since I am going to frog it down to the cuff and start it over. Why the fuss? you may wonder. Well, it's my first mitten.

This weekend, I:

  • had a lot of pizza
  • tried to make vegan nachos
  • knitted in circles, almost literally
  • organized my apartment some
  • wished I had a trust fund

The hat looks great. I like how the top is done! I'm interested in the vegan nachos, I actually had never thought about trying! Hmmm, which "cheese" to use?

I am with Emily and think the hat looks great. Also, I was just trying to send out a N.End email and can't find your address, if you get this can you email me? Thanks.
