And I cast on a basic hat. The plan is ribbing for an inch or so and then some stockinette because my brain needs something easy. And someone didn't say it had to be a difficult hat. It's in variegated yarn. It will be fine.
And I felt like a monkey trying to tie his shoelaces or a bear playing the piano. The casting on was hard is what I'm saying. I had a hard time figuring out what hand should do what and where the yarn should be when I was ready to knit. A flat hat that had to be seamed would have been an easier choice. Now I've done the hard part (the remembering AND the first couple of rows), all I have to do is finish it.
And remember to take a photo. Sorry. But the upside is you can find all kinds of things on the internets. Who knew "bear playing piano" would actually turn up images? A gentle reminder that we should always be careful what we Google for.
