The best-made plans

I got it into my head that I needed to make the Snow Devil hat from DomiKNITrix. I ordered the yarn from Knitpicks, which took more than three weeks to arrive -- I know there was a mail holiday and a deceased President holiday and a day or two of bad weather, but come ON people.

Unfortunately, I was robbed on Monday while getting into my car at the supermarket. As a result, I am less enthused about making something hooded which impedes my peripheral vision -- and the hoodless Devil Hat version doesn't butter my parsnips. I will probably end up making it, but I think it's a project or two away.

So Wednesday I picked up a couple more skeins of SWS to make a hat, to coordinate with my newest scarf. I finished it yesterday, and despite its resemblance to a blue jello mold, I like it. There will be a FO post on that one once a) I find my camera charger and take an unflattering self-portrait, or b) my husband returns home from Syracuse and takes a photo for me.

Since I am reluctant to start Snow Devil, I am projectless. I thought about making another pair of Knucks for myself, but since I just finished a pair, I'm ready for a change. I might jaunt on over to the LYS and get a ball of Rowan Cashsoft to make
Fetching ...

I can't believe that you were robbed!?! I hope that you weren't hurt...
Your blog is a delight (but this news made me worry)

cheers

I'm fine, thanks. The robber got $9 cash and a lot of frustration -- she happened to pick a target who doesn't know her ATM code, and who has a really good memory. :-) They know who did it, so I'm pretty sure they'll catch her.

I hope they do get her!

Yeah, I am burnt out on the Knucks pattern by now.

Heh, hope the nine bucks was worth it! What a scumbag.

I'm casting on for Fetching soon too, from what everyone says it's a quick and fun knit...sounds like just what you need!
