The first few shots were taken from my balcony while I was still in my jammies, but once I saw the boats pitching back & forth on their moorings and choppy seas with whitecaps to the horizon, I hurriedly dressed and ventured out with my camera. I took a couple more pictures at the bottom of my hill, where the spray was so strong I got wet just making it to the end of the street and around the corner. The wave action hit hardest on the portion of the seawall between the Terminal Building and the Via Casino archway. I know I took a ton of pictures just of that area, from a few different points including the end of the pier. Although I'm sure any liveaboard, shoreboat operator, or harbor patrol officer would disagree - it was a great way to start the day!
Tomorrow? The forecast is for temperatures in the low 80's. Whoopee!
But this time I am ready, I have plenty of ice cream and even more importantly, I finished my Sweaty September Tam.
As was previously noted I have rather a lot of hair! I tried the tam on a few different ways and finally discovered that it really looks best on me with all my hair tucked up inside. And all my hair does fit inside! Which makes this possibly the most marvelous hat I've ever knitted because it A) gets my hair up off the back of my neck, and B) perfectly manages any bad hair days, even better than a baseball cap does.
Looking at it from the back, you can see a little jog where I bloopered one of the decreases. I didn't see it myself until I started to block it. But at that point, I wasn't about to rip the whole thing back and you know, there's that whole "horseman riding by" rule. And in regards to the blocking, I think someone will be interested to know that upon completion this tam did have a substantial "point", the whole yellow center section actually. I blocked it twice, once just flattening out the pointy area, and then a second time doing the traditional "stretched over a plate" routine.
