Woke up this morning to the delightful sound of rain. We've been way behind on rain here in Kansas City. Last I saw, we were almost 2 inches short of the average for precipitation in February. I snuck out of bed, went into my room and opened the blinds to watch the rain and update my blog.
I used to hate rainy days. I think it was because I grew up in Arkansas and winter there is made up of a lot of gray rainy days. We didn't get snow much. Now that I live further North and we do get snow, I've started to appreciate a good rainy day. I've also found that it's a great excuse to knit. Who wants to go out in the muck when they can sit home and work without guilt on their latest project?
Speaking of latest projects, I just finished a hat for my mom. She has been hinting around for one for a month or so. Now I just need to send it to her. Which means I have to go out in the muck to the post office! Oh, the things we do for love...and knitting.
Mom's Hat. I used the same pattern as the hat for my husband but changed it to a K4P4 rib instead of K2P2 rib.
