Winter days and Wednesdays on the Island just don't hang together real well.
1. I’ve finally decided on my Urchin Hat for the birthday present needed THIS SUPPERTIME.
Disastrous results yesterday on the gauge for two different yarns, two different patterns, couldn’t find my #4 circ needle, well you know how this goes… on and on.

I am getting ready to cast on for the Urchin, and this time try a moss stitch around the band to shake it up a little. If I get distracted, I can always gift one of those said lovely hats I made out of Quince yarn before Christmas and didn’t sell. Is that kosher? Must get those on Etsy soon, and then pin to my Pinterest to get some action, possibly.

There’s a book - How to Sew a Straight Line - that has inspired me. I brought back from Hawaii scads of Hawaiian print fabric to make sun dresses out of, and sell during the summer season, and haven’t done so. lol. Yet another Lucy scheme on my part.
I wonder how hubby puts up with this stuff sometimes. The ideas in this head could be harnessed for good, if they would settle in a little, lol.
As for that: A) What was I even thinking? It was stuff from the Victorian cottage we had. I’m not sure what I was thinking other than it had to get moved out ASAP to clear the place for sale and I don’t know. lol.
So the communal dining table is stacked - I am typing around the stuff, that’s how hard-core I’ve become.
4. Another button I need to do. Get a "butt on" the chair in the office and continue my free-lance writing assignments right here in "river city." Stringing for the local rag here takes some persistence - you have to eyeball the island action and pitch the story to them first rather than the other way around. The slant on community and news is very different from the Mainland - they take it personally. Example? Recent bitching has been about putting in a rotary road where the only traffic light of sorts - it's a blinker - on the island is presently located as a four-way stop. The debate has been hot, the State Authorities called in, lots of slinging of the "L" word (lawsuit, lol) around. Anyway, I've got some pre-tty interesting ideas up my sleeve ;) - as usual - just you wait and see. :)
Instead, I have Family Supper Night (read that with an echo, it’s endless sometimes how much I want to hang with my extended family, lol).
And a hat that must be knit.
I could probably just put this up in a post, couldn’t I?
Good idea, lol.
Yours in yarn,
Have a Good One. :)
