like winter out there.
The cold front blew through today as expected, and the high of 64' was reached about the time I got out of bed. It started raining around 9ish, and rained off and on for most of the day, with the temperature steadily dropping. It's now 46' according to Weatherbug. I haven't gotten out to check my outside thermometer yet.
It was a good day to hunker down and finish this hat.
The yarn is Red Heart Red Hot, and it was knit on size 8 needles. I cast on 88 stitches, which makes an average size stocking hat or an extra large beanie. Most of the hats I make are beanies, since they seem to be what's in style now. Or they have been. Earflap hats seem to be making a comeback this year, based on what I'm seeing in the stores. I've got enough yarn to make one more hat out of this, then I'm going to make a bunch of Jayne hats.
Well, not a bunch. I have enough yarn to do three-- maybe four. Then I'm going back to working on using up my Red Heart stash. I've got plenty. I've even got some yarn that I bought to make Cody a sweater when he was 2. Yes, yes, yes... I know...I know...
Let's change the subject now, shall we?
I did get the houseplants -- also known as Peabody and the Chicklets--inside for the winter. Not much I can do for the plants in the beds. It's their time. I just noticed one of the Chicklets (A Christmas cactus-- and please, let's not get into a whole long diatribe about how it's really a Thanksgiving cactus. The label on the pot said Christmas Cactus, and that's good enough for me) has buds all over it. And there is a bee in my light fixture.
That means it's time for bed.
Didn't you know that? Bees in your light fixtures means it's time for bed.
That's cause I just made it up.
But it's still time for bed.
