and a whole lot of green body painting.
What there wasn't much of was knitting. I have been in a bit of a knitting funk. Two days ago I frogged a sweater for myself. I changed needles as my gauge seemed to be off and a friend said I had to swatch in the same needles I would be using to knit (circular needles instead of straights). So I started anew with bigger needles. I knit that for a bit, but stopped as my gauge is still off. Then there are two pairs of longies to knit for a new set of twins to arrive in May. Those sit languishing in my knitting bag. Today I decided I needed to break the cycle and knit a quick hat. So, I headed to the park today with THREE projects in my purse. With all those options available, I didn't knit a single stitch. I did, however, take the yarn out for the hat hoping to cast on. It just sat there.
Now I am home, and as I wind down for the day I have decided to begin and finish the hat. Of course, with 70 degree weather there isn't much need for a hat, but I have a need to break through the ennui. So for now I am knitting Soulemama's favorite knit hat, watching a bit of John Adams and reading a bit of Ape House by Sara Gruen.
