|Lots of 1x1 Ribbing Hat for Brian|
The sweater for April is finished. I think it's a bit on the small side, but she looks good in it. She looks good in most things, really. I did not take photos of the sweater yet, though, so that will come later.
I was trying to think of a topic for this post, but I just feel like I'm whining a lot lately. I can't find a job, even a retail job, so I'm getting stressed. I had a terrible nightmare the other night about someone (who looked like Jack Nicholson in The Shining) threatening to shoot me. I called 911, dropped to floor and started shouting the address, which was my Nana's address (now my cousin's). I guess it's because that was the first address I had to memorize, since I went to Kindergarten at the school on her block.
I thought this post was going to be about all the cowls I've been knitting lately, but the truth is, I seem to be knitting a lot of hats. The majority of the projects on my Ravelry page are hats, followed by things for babies (clothes and toys). Cowls come in third. When I'm searching for a pattern, I tend to save a lot of cowls. I like the simplicity of the shape, I think. A tube has great potential for all kinds of design details like cables and lace and colorwork.

Once I finish my current project (a pair of Foliage Mitts to use up some yarn), I think I need to knit another baby something for my favorite new guy. It's been fun knitting for babies again. Older kids are harder to knit for, for sure. I do have a tunic in the queue to make for Renée, but I can't seem to pick up the needles.
