I think I need something quick and satisfying to get me moving again on my lagging ufo's. I have so many excuses, but, seriously, we all know it's because I'm so freaking lazy. but I love to knit! I really do!! so I've decided that the problem is that everything I'm working on is just too slow and if I finished them now, I probably still wouldn't put them to use for a few months. I mean, the shawl (judging from current progress) looks like it's going to take about 5 balls of ksh to complete. that's well over 1000 yards to knit through. plus, I've already discovered that sweat and mohair don't go together very well, so that rules it out for summer wear.
anyway, I want to make something that's just going to take a skein or two - just a couple hundred yards. something not boring and something from which I can get immediate satisfaction. well, as immediate as immediate gets around these parts.
so, after some nice wednesday not-working this morning, I decided to make this for isa. she needs a cute sun-hat, doesn't she? I think I'm going to use some pink cotton I have lying around (somewhere...), I hope the gauge works out ok, because I don't even remember what the brand is, but I think it's a dk weight... or something. maybe I can get this cast-on before lost tonight. I've never done a picot cast-on before, so this should be fun. whee!
