I never was very good at Geometry

I'm back from a wonderful visit with a friend near Univ. of Oregon, my old stomping grounds.  Even the drive up was beautiful.
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.


  1. It's all hats all the time, every where. LOL You did a great job on the toddler hat.

    Love that picture of the mountain.

  2. I like the colors you chose. Mine is almost finished...yippee! Although I did not stripe it. My friend is not a fan of stripes and such.

  3. Great colors. Hats are such a nice quick knit

  4. I really love the mountain picture!

  5. Really like the stripes - I think you've decided it for me - this is the hat I'll make for my dad!
