Hey, I Knit Something!
Nobody's more surprised than me, but I started and finished an entire knit object last week. The arrival of cold weather meant Annabelle was wearing the knit hats friends had knit for her quite a bit, and I was fielding a lot of "did you knit that?" questions. I just couldn't stand saying "nope!" all the time, so I went looking for a cute hat pattern. I settled on the Lilly Hat (Ravelry link) and used leftovers from my Very Necessary Sweater.
I made it a bit longer than the pattern calls for so it would cover her ears a bit. I actually think I went a bit overboard on the length, but I'm trying not to over-focus on the imperfections. The pleasure I get from answering the "did you knit that?" in the affirmative makes it much easier -- as does the extremely high cute quotient of the model!
What a very cute model indeed! And the hat looks wonderful. Nice to see you again :).
