Simple hats for the win



I feel like a broken record when I talk about how much I love knitting hats and about how simple patterns are all I can manage these days. But that's the way it is right now. So. another hat, another simple pattern (k5 p3 rib). Yes, I loved making it. And I'm sure someone will be happy to wear it too.

So, I'm off again. Making more simple hats (this was # 4 of the 20 before 2020 by the way, so no, I suppose I'm not going to meet that goal. Then again, there are still a few weeks left. Hmn...)

Sidenote: I sometimes feel like I'm exaggerating when I talk about not having the headspace for a lot of things etc. But yesterday we were having dinner and T. was hinting gently that he felt it wasn't quite enough. So I was thinking about what I had (we really need to get some groceries this week) to make as an extra for him. It more or less went like this: "I want to save the minced meat for tomorrow, but this afternoon, when I took today's steaks out of the freezer to let them defrost I found some chicken that I forgot about, but that is frozen solid and.... wait! Today's steaks?"
Um, yes. I somehow totally forgot about those. Ate my roasted veggies without even realizing something was missing (we always eat steak with roasted veggies)... So yeah. Headspace.

  1. I can identify! I think I try to keep too much saved in the noggin that it pushes out things I need to think about, but instead I have useless trivia saved up in there. LOL

    1. Oh yes, useless trivia is taking up a lot of space here too. I was editing a novel and the main character was traveling to Scotland, thinking "who ever invented driving on the left side of the road..." But I somehow knew that driving on the left side used to be the norm. And then I looked it up to check if that was true and now I even know why and when it changed...
