I'm not good at waiting.
Back to the 16-cable hat, I finally got the pattern for it and ended up knitting back in spring. Which, of course, was too warm to wear by then. So the finished hat went into my finished projects bag to be blocked eventually, and was forgotten about.
A couple of weeks ago I realized that I had a few things sitting in the "to block" pile and decided to have a little block party. The attendees: the 16 cable hat, the Earth and Sky for the Enabler, and Christmas gift the first. I should mention that Earth and Sky was finished in summer, but I was lazy about blocking it since it was also too hot to wear until now. But now, in the throes of fall, it's the perfect manly accessory.
While I was knitting it I kept accidentally calling it his shawl but always corrected myself to call it a triangular scarf. He's pretty okay with calling it a shawl though, so now that's what it is.
|"I'm just going to make him take a profile shot because whenever he takes a picture of me straight on my face looks weird. Plus it's a picture of a hat so a straight on picture wouldn't make sense. Good excuse right? Right."|
I have other things capturing my desires now, but with so much Christmas knitting to do in the next couple of months, I'm going to have to keep waiting.
... I hate waiting.
