Many Changes...

Let's start with the weather...it's NOT snowing, but pouring.  A good thing...should help to wash the dirty snow away!!!  Agree????

Second on the list...a job change.  Yup, another one within the last 5 months.  It's a long story BUT...I'm going back to work for my old boss who graciously kept me around for over 5 years.  He has his restaurant back and should be opening towards the end of May.  I have 1 year, 2 months and 14 days left before I can retire.  But, who's counting!!  :)

And last but not least....I've had a cold...feeling nasty...and have been wasting so much time.  I spend hours upon hours looking at things to knit or crochet on the internet.  Now, if I took all of that wasted energy and did something with it...HOLY COW...I'd REALLY be doing something!! 

So...with that in mind, I think I'll go do something...like take a nap.

A Disappointing Project

I'm one round shy of finishing a hat I've been working on "forever".  I'll finish it this afternoon....but I HATE it!  I love cotton brimmed hats for the spring and summer months...they're colorful and serve a purpose.  So...I tried using a skein of yarn I had in my "stash"--Paton's COTTON TOP.  It's ply is uneven and it's full of "lumps and bumps"--they way it should be.  But, it's just not suitable...it stretches...I mean REALLY stretches...and the stitches look uneven.  If I sold that in my eBay store, I'm sure they consumer would be just plain pissed off.  Know what I mean??  So, I'll give the hat to one of the thrift stores and move on.
