Reading While Knitting

Nothing complicated; nothing too exciting, but yes, I do knit while I read. As well as during many other domestic activities.

I got something done

The Hat fit for a Boyfriend in Louisa Harding's Grace Silk and Wool in a colorway that might have been called "Oh, So Incredibly Blue."

I like the decreases pattern on the top -- this is before blocking, on a smaller head. After I saw it from the side,

I had some serious worries about the length, even though I had carefully measured and then made it about an inch longer. So I brought it in and blocked it, and it covers my ears, so I hope it will cover Eric's too. If not, I guess I can pick out the top and redo it.


Only three more projects in the works and I can cast on for an hourglass sweater for me, in a green tweed that's talking to me as I speak.

In other news, I spoke in front of a City Council meeting last night in support of a project I've been planning. It would have been much less nerve wracking (I don't generally mind public speaking) if not for two circumstances:

1) I was called to come and speak about 40 minutes before the meeting, and

2) The person who called me used up all but one of my talking points in her off-the-cuff remarks, so I had only one thing to say. Fortunately, the council had lots of questions, so all I had to do was answer them and it worked out okay. It was a nice start.

Ooh, love the decrease pattern! So much neater than the usual way I've decreased ribbed hats at the top.

I enjoyed Hourglass. Unfortunately, I made it in yarn I'd gotten in a sale on impulse that's not a great color and is far too scratchy. So it lives in the closet. What yarn do you have planned?

Yay for Council speaking!

It's always so satisfying to finish a knitting project! :o)

Good for you on your public speaking!!

Gorgeous hat! I really like the decrease pattern too. I wouldn't have thought of doing it that way.

Hope your Council Meeting talk accomplishes what you want!
