Sanna's Bag

“I never seem to have what I need when I need it. I’m going to make a belt-bag that’s bigger on the inside than on the outside, and just carry everything with me.”

Saturday well spent

Saturday DH and I were sooo good! We got up at 7 am and went to the mall to walk in the air conditioning. Put in two brisk miles, then hit the gym across the street for a shower, and off to breakfast at our favorite place, Sully's. Then I drove out to S&J's place for knitting, while DH mowed the lawn, picked up his bike and had fun killing demon cows. When I got back, we went to see an early matinee of "Hellboy 2, The Golden Army." It was entertaining and air-conditioned, and, since it was a matinee, not infested with teens. What more can you ask of a summer flick?For movie knitting, I need utterly mindless stuff. I cast on a stocking cap on the way there, knit the body of the hat during the movie, and finished off the decreases during Jeopardy that evening. Worsted weight on size 8 16 inch circs.

But then, you know I have a thing for hats.

    And quick hats like this are great for emergency Chrissy gifts. There are times and seasons that I really wish we had Christmas in winter - my gifting would be so much easier!

    You always look so elegant in a hat. In fact, more than a passing resemblance to Amelia Peabody.

    The knitting of has on circular needles is perfect theatre knitting. I learned the hard way NOT to take cable knitting ANYWHERE!

    I used to whip up a random baby hat whenever I was stuck in the ER with Taz for hours and hours, which luckily wasn't often.

    I can't believe I missed your 600th post! Congrats, happy trails, and may you have 6000 more. (I wonder how many I have...)

    Darling, you look stunningly beautiful in hats--you really can wear them!

    I've been trying to bring socks to the movies, but Mate doesn't understand the whole "What do you mean I can't hold your hand?" problem, so I don't get much done.
