Zippi asked yesterday if I was at the pool, and the answer is yes, yes, yes! Not till after the heat (and burning power of the sun has passed)—but unless its raining—come 4 PM (till 7PM) most days you can find me neck deep in the pool.

As to the progress—well the side of the hat is taking shape—but it's not done yet. A few more rounds of lace are needed before I can start the hat band. At this rate, I'll be finishing up hat 8 or 9 (since I think I am going to do the black and violet versions 2 at time as I did the terracotta and white ones) at the family re-union—and not before.
And then, once the hats are finished--an sort break from scheduled knitting for some Squares. A way to use up the skeins of Red Heart (that seems to appear from nowhere!) and to participate in a art project. What to join in too? Read all about it here.
This is the third (or is it the fourth?) time I have helped Robyn on a project. I love it. I think of myself as creative and artistic—but I never see my self as an artist. But I love being part of art project.
It's an interesting distinction. Artist often design beautiful projects—but craftmen (or in this case, crafts women) do most of the grunt work to bring the project to fruition-(though, in Robyn's case, she always does more than 50% of the grunt work, as well as all the conceptual work, and bulk of the installation work, too.
There is great pleasure in being part of the creative process. And a lot of flexability too. Knit, or crochet, plain or fancy, any color you want! What's not to like!?
