Has everything, at one time or another, been done? Not really, we don't have a cure for cancer. We have "original works" but how original are they? Has every word been used with the same intent? Has every stitch been used in a pattern some time in history? Everything in life is random. Even in randomness there are patterns. I feel a little out there today. Can you tell? What until I get started on the discussion of life's little things.

I love to wear hats but I don't knit them. I missed the knit-a-thon this weekend (darn grass seed/pollen) at Soft Horizons but did call to ask if I knit something at home if they would still accept it. They will so I am trying to find a good pattern for Caps for Kids. Suggestions?
I was looking at Halfdome. I love and have Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran on hand in some good colors. I also like Topi. I have some bright blue cotton that would look great knit up like this. The designer of Topi has great things on her site. I'll post pictures once I've started.

Knitting with strangers.

Here I am. Out in the world.

Today is the Knit-a-thon at Soft Horizons. My goal is to knit at least one hat before my allergies take over my brain and I shut down. My knitting group abandoned me (ha, ha, just kidding! I know you are all busy) but I am alright knitting with strangers.

My pattern submission is almost ready. I am hoping that the pattern is as funny to others as it is to me!
