So much for me not starting any more knitting projects until I finished some of the ones I’ve already got going. Saturday, I got to rooting around in my yarn stash and saw that I had enough left over from making my cousin-in-law a scarf that I decided to make her a hat out of it, too. The picture doesn’t do it justice. It’s a cute little cloche hat, if I say so myself. My cousin-in-law likes owls, and my cousin graduated from Rice University in Houston, Tx, whose ball teams are the Rice Owls so she should get a kick out of it. Naturally, I had to modify the pattern and work it into a matching scarf — tricky, but I think it came out OK. The owls would look more like owls if they had buttons sewed on for eyes, but I don’t have enough buttons of a suitable color to do that. The hat will have a pom-pom on the top. I’ve got it made, but haven’t attached it yet.
The hole in the bathroom wall is still not fixed. This last plumbing episode happened June 20th. I called again about it this morning, and was informed that they’re “waiting on a part.” Sigh.
