You know, I really need to start reading Ravelry posts BEFORE I start a project….
What do you think? A little big? Yep – and this was mentioned over and over on Ravelry. Which I would have seen if I had looked instead of just jumping in. How about some details to distract you from what a mess this is?
Pattern: Turn a Square

So Dan got a blue hat, and not the green one I planned for him. He was pretty happy about it – I even got to see it in action on the train tonight (sorry for the blurry iPhone picture – it is hard to take a picture on your iPhone when the train is moving!)….
This was a really fast knit, and I enjoyed it – so I was really disappointed it didn’t fit. I need to figure out how many to decrease so it fits Larry. And now I’m not sure what yarn to use to make him one since I don’t think he and Dan will want the exact same hat (although I definitely have enough yarn left). Good thing he has another hat to wear while I figure this out…
So now I think I’ll go back to my Fair Isle hat, and then I have a decision to make – start a new sweater or finish the Aleita shell. I’m really torn – I just have the top of the shell to go, and I’d love to have it to wear to work, and I could probably get it done in a few weeks. But the call of a new sweater, new yarn….so hard to resist!
This was a fast week – I really do love a four day work week. Wouldn’t it be nice to have it all the time? Have a great Friday!
