While I was finishing this, I was envisioning FO photos. The best one in my mind was my bright blue Hitchhiker, silhouetted and contrasted against a bright blue, gorgeously sun-lit fall sky. Mother Nature has conspired against that photo by providing gray and rainy skies here for the next five days, but that's okay.
A yoga teacher friend recently told me that if I can't seem to "let it go" then sometimes "let it be" is good enough. My first "let it be" action wasn't so hard after all!
I always say this, but I think this is my favorite Hitchhiker so far. It will go perfectly with a much-anticipated trip to Fort Collins next week. I do have an idea in my mind for my next Hitchhiker, but first I've got some unselfish knitting (birthday fingerless mitts, a hat that won't be too hot during winter in Texas, and a charity hat) lined up. There also exists the possible scenario that I'll find some yarn at The Loopy Ewe so perfect I'll have to cast on for my tenth Hitchhiker immediately, but that might just prove there really is a fine line between love and obsession!
