Get your knit on...

It is time for knit night again and I am beginning to fret. My project does not have the progress I was hoping for since the last meeting. Never mind that I was just working on a gauge swatch then and now I am working on the actual project. It is not "enough" to satisfy my somewhat competitive nature. It is not an excuse that I didn't bother to pick up the needles over the weekend because I was on vacation. So, after the trip to the grocery store and the kennel, it will be knit like mad until time to go. Just so it looks like the two weeks between meetings have been somewhat productive.
I am also stumped with a little problem on an original design for a hat. Now that I have drawn in the circumference of the band (so the little bugger won't cover one's eyes and be more ski-mask-like), I am not sure how many rows to knit to make the top "flop" properly. Maybe this is a job for the circle to ponder tonight.
Vacation was productive in another way. The blues and greens of the patient ocean at dusk keep playing through my memory. I have the perfect yarn in my stash. Now I just have to find a great "wave-ey" type pattern to put in it for a wrap. And then there is the orange ball of fire rising from the waters at dawn. Some yarn from a San Antonio excursion (Noro, naturally....don't you love his colorways?) is destined to do that one. Maybe a freeform piece to make the sun...and then pick up the sea's purple and blue.....I see that on the back of a kimono-type jacket .....mmmmmm....inspiration.....
