Down to the decrease

I'm nearly done with the second strip A of Scotty's Hat, which means just I'm about 3/4 of the way done. Yesterday as I was binding off I dropped down some stitches and fixed the funky short row wraps. It's still not perfect, but it's looking much better now. I'm hoping I can get it all done by Sunday, and perhaps get weird stares on Monday when I wear it out in the town.

I keep thinking that Jessamy is done with the last of her Pre-Thesis work (all work except her thesis handed in). But there just seems to be more and more to do, and just when I think the craziness is over, she has something else to hand in and the saga continues. She said this morning that her last day at school should be on Tuesday, so hopefully that will still be true when Monday comes around. Unfortunately our lease ends on the 16th, so next week will be spent packing (I've already started) and cleaning.


  1. Hi, followed you here via Flickr, have a nice weekend

    I'm sure you're doing a great job on your hat. I confess that I don't like the style much, and can't think of a reason to make it. Right now, I've hardly been knitting at all. Lots going on here, with Garrett finishing school and me planning to go back East for my high school reunion (30th!) and a month-long visit to my mom's house in the Atlanta suburbs. I'm sorry you won't make it home this summer. Do you think about just moving back and doing the long-distance thing?

  3. I like the idea of the hat more than the end result, but it's actually really warm.

    High school reunion time! I'm missing (or rather won't miss missing it) my 10 year one. Have fun at yours!

    Is Garrett excited about the visit to your mom's?
