Couple of people asked about the hat pattern yesterday.
It came from this book
Men’s Knits by Erika Knight. This is a pretty good book, but not my favorite for men’s knitting patterns. The patterns are a bit complex sometimes, and the models are all so glum looking that the garments don’t just blow me away. But, it had this great hat pattern that could be modified to knit in the round on dpn’s, or knitted flat with a seam up the back. I chose to knit it flat because I didn’t have the large dpn’s.
Today, I am off to Minneapolis. I repacked last night, taking out some things and adding heavier things. Less under clothes and more heavy outer garments that I can put on and take off in public. I’ll be indoors most of the time I’m there, so I just need to be dressed for short car trips…and some unknown “fun event”…which could be anything…Seriously. Anything. This is such and unpredictable group.
The high today in Minneapolis is 16*. WHAT????? Yes, that’s right. And, on Thursday, when I’m headed to the airport before the sun comes up, the low is going to be 1*.
This is why I don’t usually travel north in winter. That and the fact that my team is from the north and it’s a new team and I just can’t swear that they’re going to have my back when I say it’s too cold.
But, as Gloria Gaynor said “I will survive”. The plan is to return with 10 healthy toes. That’s the measure of success here.
Everybody have a great week. Between putting clothes on and taking them off, I’m not sure I’ll have time to blog. Besides, I’ll probably be shivering, so I’ll be back later in the week. If you see a man knitting a black sock in the airports today, it’s probably me. Say Hey!
