Do over

I finished Jess' hat, only to have it proclaimed too small and "weird". Let me tell you, I am just loving thirteen years old right now. But she was very much correcton  the hat being too small.

But I did finish it.

Speaking of finishing, I pulled out the entrelac baby blanket and decided to put an applied icord edge.

Still working on my "Lisa Frank" blanket, and trying to decide on the next project.

In reality, my next project ought to be getting a handle on the house here. It's beyond messy.

Jess, who hasn't knitted a stitch dice the 4th grade, announced this weekend tat she wanted to knit herself a hat. A fluffy hat, that was blue and white. After a few questions and a rough assisted sketch. (The things that child comes up with. It was quite a brainstorm.) Jess decided she wanted a chenille, blue and white, chevron hat. That she was going to knit. The blind kid who hasn't knitted a stitch in over three years, was going to knit herself a stranded color work hat. 

Introducing my new project.

Yarn: Bernat Baby Blanket in Baby Blue & White
Pattern: improvised
