Here is my new hat.  I almost never knit anything for myself.  My mom gave me this yarn for Christmas.

"It looked like you," she remarked.

Do I look like a rainbow on steroids?


Ha, well, I know what she meant.  I love rainbows.  I can't help it.  And color!  If you open my kitchen cabinets you will find at least once piece of Fiestaware in every single color manufactured since 1936.  Probably about 40 colors.

Can you say, "Addict?"

It makes washing dishes fun y'all!  You might want to try it.

One time my brother came over when I lived in Colorado.  He went into the kitchen to get himself a drink.  He came back and said, "It looks like a rainbow exploded in your cabinets."

I'll take that as a compliment.

Anywho.  Here's my hat.  I started knitting it on January 7th--the day I got DENIED by the insurance company.  For some reason, the colors cheered me up.  I can't look at this hat without smiling.  It's just so......happy.

Oh and by the way.....my primary doctor submitted her own letter of appeal to the insurance company on Monday....so I'm hopeful.  I should hear soon.  If not---I have a new plan.  A sleep study!  Sherry suggested it.  I *do* snore.  A little.  Okay, well..... hardly ever.  But you never know.  At the very least I'll have the satisfaction of bleeding the insurance company out of more money for wrongfully denying me in the first place.

And OH YEAH!!!  One more thing.  My red balloon is still faithfully touching my ceiling.  It's a sign.  I just know it!

Here's the hat--  :)
