and left over latkes for supper.
I had a lovely and pleasant day. I spent some of it reading, some listening to an audiobook (Cast in Flight by Michele Sagara) and the rest of the time completing another 12 rows on the cross-stitch.
which leaves me with my fun calculations of 5148 stitches to go.
My last decision of the evening is this –
I’ve promised Bill a hat to protect his bald head. Rather than go wandering into the garage, I just hit the drawer in my studio and came up with four skeins of STR. The first is warm grays and browns, the second a rather hot set of reds. The third combines fall greens, oranges, and leaf browns and the last shades of chocolates and creams. All of them would make a good hat. I love this yarn; it is by far better for hats and scarves than socks due to the lack of nylon. I’m going to go with my standard Exeter Hat pattern which means ribbing all the way up. Radical color changes will get smoothed out.
