Let the Games Begin
is better than a perfect plan next week.
-George S. Patton
Remember the plan? That reading list plan that I developed
The plan - for those of you too lazy to click backwards - is that I'm actually going to knit things from the pattern books I own, instead of buying more. An incredible concept, no? I'm going to make a good faith attempt at a project from a different book each of the 13 "months" of my intern year. (Don't laugh. No really. Don't.)
So far, so good. Check out the hat from Baby Knits from Dale of Norway. (FYI - I've seen rumors that this is out of print. If that's true, run, do not walk and go buy your copy. It's a great pattern collection.) I'm making the cover sweater and hat, and starting with the hat. You can see the beginning of the ladybugs on the right.
(Excuse the flash. There's not even enough sun in sunny California for me to be home during daylight hours more than a couple of times a week.)
I'm not sure what delusional planet I was on when I decided to do a fingering weight fair isle sweater and hat during my first month on the Internal Medicine Wards (OK, you can really stop laughing now), but I'll finish it eventually. I am getting some time to knit between all the craziness that makes my pager my best friend, worst enemy, and constant companion. There are all sorts of fun knitters in San Diego, and I'm trying to make as many knitting gatherings as I can. There's another one tonight, so I'll fill you in on all the good times tomorrow.
