Rasta Hat

I managed to finish this hat a few days ago, even though I've been sick this week. It's the Rasta Hat from DIY Network:,2025,DIY_14141_5312018,00.html

I used James C. Brett 100% acryclic Marble yarn purchased from Twist Yarn Shop. It's better than the white hat I made, but the fit is still a little dubious.

I've had the flu this week, and I'm still not well. I haven't been able to go to work and I'm missing school this evening. It's not good to miss class when you're in a concentrated program. I found out from the teacher that I need to answer the discussion questions for three chapters in order to make up for only half of the points I would have gotten for being in class. This is going to take me longer than the time I would have spent in class. Grumble!

I'm into the sleeve shaping for the back of the Borscht Tee and it's still looking good.

I hear it's cold outside. I've been in bed . . .

Wish I Could Knit

It's Saturday morning and I'm at home rather than with my knitting buddies at Panera. I used to be able to do a lot of knitting on weekends. Now, I'm spending my time with the textbook in the above picture. If I can get 76 pages read today, maybe I can let myself do a little bit of knitting before I fall over into bed tonight. Then, tomorrow I need to write a 2-4 page paper. Then I have three evenings to do the rest of my homework before going back to class Thursday evening. This will all be worth it in a couple of years.
