Yesterday was our Halloween "party" at work. Some of the costumes were so clever (others...not so much...). The food was quite good and there were plenty of laughs. Pictures that were taken did not turn out well - the room was too dark. I think the best costume(s) were from cash management who came as Little Bo Peep and her sheep. Hysterical. This is the same group that won a few years back for Train Wreck Barbie and Alcoholic Ken.
Anyhoo, it was a crazy/busy day for me (I was in the office by 6:30 a.m.). It's that time of year when EVERYTHING happens and is due at the same time - performance appraisals, bonus calculations for the field, etc., etc. Today will be a little easier.
I did manage to knit some on the Crazy Hat last night and am now up to the decrease part of the crown. Here's a picture of Fletch trying it for me.
You can see (barely) a third color at the top. I think a 4th color will appear, but not until the very end of the decreases. It is soft and feels really nice. I hope Colin likes it.
Tyg has been on a walk-about or gallivanting around quite a bit lately! Last night as I was cooking dinner it appeared he was in a bit of a stand-off (picture a bit fuzzy as taken through the door so the cats wouldn't be scared off):
Shortly after I took this shot, the interloper (with a rather large, red collar) got up and walked away. Tyg quickly followed and he never came back till 5:45 this morning!!
Well, the e-mails are flying in with questions regarding bonus roll-ups I completed yesterday...I'd best get to it! Happy Mid-Week!
I'm sure your inbox gets filled up quickly during bonus time. Hopefully things calm down a bit and you can finish Colin's hat. I love Fletch's modeling shot!ReplyDelete
I am glad that there is NO unraveling here! And, I love that you do a work Halloween party!ReplyDelete
Good luck with that inbox. . .ReplyDelete
Love the hat -- and you're at the fast part now! (Those decreases really make the knitting fly, don't they?)
May your day be filled with LOTS of treats and no tricks.ReplyDelete
We are getting the latest "outdoor" kitty used to being in the house at night and it's been going pretty smoothly until last night. We heard a huge ruckus in the hallway and ran out to find....nothing. The kitties were all sitting there looking as scared as we were. This morning I found one of my big plastic knitting bags under my rocking chair. It seems one of the kitties must have tried to get in it and got stuck on the handles and panicked and ran with it still attached. Poor kitty but I did have a good laugh when I found the bag this morning. Cats are just crazy critters.ReplyDelete
Hat is looking great!ReplyDelete
The hat is fabulous, and love it being modeled with the knitting needles still in situ. LOL! I know your son will love it. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)ReplyDelete
Your hat is just perfect! It will keep him so warm!ReplyDelete
The hat looks great. I bet the intended recipient will love having it this winter.ReplyDelete
Won't be long now until Colin has a new winter hat.ReplyDelete
Maybe Tyg's friend is a GIRL! LOL
Love the hat! We have a book called The Night I Followed the Dog (Charlie loves it); long story short, the dog owns a very cool nightclub and he goes there to meet up with all his dog friends to "just be dogs" ... maybe you should follow Tyg to see what he's up to ;-)ReplyDelete
It's always a concern when you have a new cat in the yard-nice to see at least he was collared and not a danger--they look interested!ReplyDelete
