Trying to revive the blog…

I’m trying to get myself back into writing. I’ve been keeping up pretty well with my knitting, but have been so busy at work that when I’m at home I usually feel too tired to write much of anything. However… I’ve discovered that I miss posting here, so after a seven-month break, here I go again.

First up, the third of my colorful caps, this one knitted in size “baby.” I knitted it on July 4th, finishing by weaving in the ends of the strands on Sunday the 5th. I found out on Monday the 6th that the baby I made it for was also born on the 4th! So the color selection turned out to be perfect.

I used the basic pattern from the book Knit Hats! by Deb and Lynda Gemmell, modifying it to use letters I mocked up using spreadsheet software. I particularly like how the top of the hat turned out. I’m hoping for a photo of the baby wearing the cap, but since he is the nephew of a co-worker, I hold out little hope of getting one.

I grew up in New England, moved to the Carolinas in '98 to start working at what was then a large regional bank and is now a really big nationwide bank. I work doing intranet content management and intranet site management for said bank. After work, I watch movies & eat. I've been studying Aikido since 2014, and I ride an old Honda Shadow. Someday I want to go skydiving.
