I'm honestly debating if I should write a post or watch Real Housewives of Atlanta. Normally, I wouldn't watch the show, but the gal with the wig (the blonde, I mean) is gonna' talk to her used-to-be friend (Nene?) and sometimes I just have to make a decision about what I need to do and what I need to do. The stuff on this tv show, they can't it make up.
So for now, I'll watch the tv with one eye and write with the other. Oh wait. I'm blind in one eye; excuse the errors or random thinking here.
Oh and hey, what's up with the new chest on the blonde one? Or are they old?
Which reminds me: I'm blocking the White Knuckle Cap, otherwise known as The Cap that Looks Good on People With Many Different Bra Sizes (including completely flat because I'll size it for youths, too, and also do a worsted version which I'm knitting now--but not right now because I'm busy watching boom boom over there on the tv while I type this).
Although this cap is meant to be ripple-y, the tops of caps tend to pucker a bit so I always, always, block them.
When I do, I blow up a balloon to a size smaller than an average head and place it carefully inside the cap and put the whole shebang into a vase or a bowl and let it sit for awhile. Then, in the case of a beret-like cap, when it is slightly damp, I take it off of the balloon and lay it flat and bring the brim in a bit.
I have had emails from knitters complaining that my cap patterns pucker at the top. I don't like getting these emails because, for one, they think that it is all my fault when I know it isn't. And two, when I write them back and ask them if they happened to block the top of the cap, I never hear back from them, and I wonder why.
I suppose it could be that, after they received my email, they already got down to business with a brand, new cap pattern and tried to put mine out of their minds, or that they're still so mad at me that they deleted my email without reading it.
Yes, that could be it: That they are so mad they can't stand to read my reply.
P.S. This Pagewood Farms yarn is to die for. I tried the cap on and I absolutely love it. I call it a "White Knuckle Cap" because, honestly, this baby eats yarn like crazy and I kept thinking that I would run out. I didn't. Thing is, I'm knitting the worsted version and two inches into it, I'm already thinking I'm going to run out of yarn. I wonder if I can stand the suspense.
