Knitting and one other thing

Dear Nancy

Yess, I want to try the mitten recipe. And right now I'm making a hat that will need mittens to go with it.

I knit at Knit 'N Needle today - here's what the space looks like:

except it was crowded with 3 knitters and Aimee, who owns the shop. One of the knitters was finishing her first-ever project: a hat. And all of us got excited about it.

Anyway, I'm knitting the Maltese Fisherman's Hat from Elizabeth Zimmerman's Knitter's Almanac. It's a goofy looking hat - maybe that's why I like it. I'm using up some of the silk-mohair stuff you bought eons ago on sale from Lee Ward's, mixed in with some Noro. They're nice and soft and FAT together, between 5 and 6 stitches for every TWO inches. That's fat.

I did a bunch of other errands today, and one other thing. Here's Amanda with a clue:

Lots of love, Mary

How short is it anyway. And I want a photo. We must be on the same wavelength because I got a new do and I wanted it thinned so it would not lay down flat.
I went out of there with a spike in the middle. All I have to do is rough it up when it is wet and it dries that way and I look like Woody Woodpecker. Do you want a photo of me?

I definitely want a picture of you looking like Woody Woodpecker. I'll show you mine if you show me yours. md
