I don't have much to say about turning 59 today. I am not happy but since there's not much I can do about it, I suppose the best thing is to just carry on as usual because suddenly making it to 59 seems like a gift. I did manage to get a bit of needle time in this week. I finished the Graham hat. It was a fast, fun knit and after I figured out the top decreases, it turned out exactly as planned-something that rarely ever happens around here.
I used smaller needles than the pattern called for so I would get a denser, less slouchy hat. I am a little old (sob) for this look but as long as I can squeeze my old lady bun under it, it works for me.
