Row’ll on with the years and never stand still

To be on the safe side because we were exposed to other people yesterday, we didn’t expose more other people to us today: we did church by Zoom.

Which means that during Sunday School I turned my camera off and picked up my needles that had ribbing and a few plain rows and made surprisingly good headway on the next random hat (thinking, and this is why I have a Malabrigo Mecha stash.) I did a bit more afterwards.

Then at 5 p.m. I had a knitting group by Zoom, and brainless patterns are definitely what you want while conversations are going on and you’re trying to read the captions–even when your heart is on that complicated lace-and-cables over there.

And so yet another plain beanie arrives in the world, needing the ends run in but otherwise ready to go. To… I’ll have to find out. But we woke up to 29F and deep frost this morning and someone out there badly needs some soft warmth on their head.

This Sunday hat thing could get to be a pattern.

Last night WAS a bit hectic! And the hat I was blocking is STILL wet. I like the idea of a charity hat while on zoom. Good suggestion.

Some patterns just don’t make good social knitting! But the hats are a great idea.

I quite agree with simple patterns for meetings, and the benefits of being off-camera. They say something repetitive (like unfancy knitting or crocheting) helps one to focus – that’s my reasoning! It’s part of how I finished so many charity items in the last year.

Beautiful hat!

I don’t have Zoom meeting to attend. Still, I should make a point of knitting a hat a week, every other week at the very least. There are a lot of people in need…
