of Katia Sevilla pink ribbon looks like:
Next up are the baby hats. I think I'll do a helix stripe in three colors with solid-colored cuffs – three different colors of cuffs, though. This definitely needs a visual to explain!
The first helix knitting I ever encountered was this pattern by Joan Hamer. I'm going to start my caps with a wide garter-stitch cuff knit sideways, like this:
You can snag the pattern for this cap here. That site is the very outdated and long-neglected site for the knitting guild in Blacksburg to which I used to belong. Guess who the webmaster was/is?
I thought I had jury duty this morning but it turns out that being called for duty doesn't necessarily mean you have to actually do anything. I'm supposed to call every Friday morning from now until mid-November to see if my services will be needed. No court today [one of the advantages of small-town living] – I feel like I got a day off!
My four-mile walk/run yesterday [thank you, Mar!a – it's 'running' from now on] was surprisingly tough after Sunday's performance. I felt a little hypoglycemic at one point – shaky, sweaty, lightheaded – and ended up walking almost all of the last half. I walked for about 70 minutes altogether; not nearly the efficient pace as the previous day. I think that's the way it goes, though. A couple of so-so days seems to always follow a particularly good one.
Thank goodness it's not like that with eating. I sure do like having my menus pre-planned for me.
Thanks once again for all your recent comments. You keep me motivated and inspired!
