Why this journey?

I've been retired now for over a year. Husband has been sick but is now doing quite well with new pacemaker. I continue to knit and knit and crochet. Recently I became friends again with my sewing machine so you will see some of those projects, too. Thanks for reading.

Been there, done Hat

Okay, it's a groaner.  It's Monday and groaners help remind us that we can laugh at ourselves and our situations (sometimes.)

Finished the hat for re-submission to TKGA for the Master Knitting Designation Level 1.  This time I managed the following:
  • Used smaller needles for the ribbing;
  • Used yarn that was light and bright so the stitches show clearly;
  • Finally 'got it' for the jogless join-in-the-round when knitting with colors;
  • Used duplicate stitch for weaving in those pesky yarn tails;
  • Knitted and assemble yet another top=knot.

Hoping for the best.  Still more paperwork to edit.

TMI:  The hat in the pic below is covering a roll of toilet paper.  I reckon I might have an entire set of paper-toppers if I have to keep knitting hats in colors that may not be choice #1.

Hope your Monday is as bright as the orange and yellow in the Been There Done Hat.
