|I got a quick shot of Mt. Shasta out of my car window.|
We spent much of the time just catching up, and knitting, of course. I was working up my second version of Jared Flood's Turn A Square hat. I suppose I should not have started the corner decreases without double-checking my stitch count and placing markers, especially after having a glass of wine with dinner. It wasn't until I was almost finished that I realized my "Turn A Square hat" had turned into a rectangle. Arggh!
Oh well. Last night I finished putting the lights on the tree so that the boys could put the ornaments on while I ripped out and re-knit the top of the hat. It is amazing how much faster the rest of the hat went the second time around.
This one is for a toddler with blue eyes so I like how the colors are working out. I will write out the modifications I made to create a toddler-size Turn A Square Hat in time for FO Friday. I need to cast on for at least one more hat for his brother while cookies are in the oven tonight, so hopefully I'll have more shades of blue to share for WIP Wednesday too.
