There was so much yarn left from the striped hat that I decided to see what would happen if I used both the yarns at once. I also knit that one from the bottom up instead of the top down. The original pattern is by Cabin Fever (Baby Stocking Cap #115) and includes tips for "jogless" stripes that seemed to work just fine.
What did we do besides knit, you say? Well, we spent one night in Portland and woke up to this lovely rainbow. We shopped at 3 yarn shops and 2 quilt stores. And we went to Cannon Beach where, despite the rain and wind, had a nice time relaxing.
We had a fabulous view of Haystack Rock from our 3rd floor window. This seagull had high hopes of being invited in or at least fed, but we were hard-hearted and just took his picture.
It was so windy that we only ventured down to the beach once at low tide. Can you see all the starfish and barnacles? Normally they are way under water.
When we got back home, this Christmas cactus was blooming and reminding me that the holidays are fast approaching. Lots to do, that's for sure! What happened to October and November? Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
