Poor Bartholomew Cubbins tries to take off his hat to the king, only to find endless hats on his head.
I'm happy knitting hats just now. They're a quick little snack of a knit and useful, too. Here's the latest, my second
Fake Isle with a modified rise.
The design on the rise is Border 50 (based on a multiple of 6 stitches, plus 1) in
Scandinavian Knitting Designs by Pauline Chatterton.
As I mentioned in the last blog entry, we were on Wisconsin Public Radio last Thursday. It was a really fun experience, although Tom and I are not slick with our spiel yet. It's a complex story and hard to boil down to short answers. The host was wonderful. He had read our book carefully and asked good questions. After, we went out to dinner at our favorite restaurant, The Pinewood.
When we got home around 8 p.m., there was a car we did not know in the driveway. It turned out to be our 10th grader's debate team partner who had brought her home after debate practice. So there the two of them were, on the couch, watching tv, no parental unit.
Back to reality!
