Well I swore to myself after last weeks yarn along that I wouldn’t still be working on this hat for Luke next yarn along. But here I am… one week later and it’s still not done. It’s close though! I have to knit the band for around the bottom and sew it on and then we will be done.
I had my first encounter with the kitchener stitch this weekend, the pattern called for it to stitch up the back of the hat. It was easier than I had originally thought… I only had to watch the video 7 or 8 times. 😉
I was relieved after trying it on Luke that it will indeed fit him this winter and probably next winter too, I would be mighty sad after spending all that time knitting if he only wore it for a few months!
Seriously what did people do before youtube??
This week I’ve been reading Embers of Love by Tracie Peterson on my ipad, I love being able to borrow ebooks from my library!!
I’m also reading The Creative Family again. I requested it from my library three months ago now and just got it. I wish my library would order extra copies of popular books!! I’m so excited Amanda Blake Soule has another book coming out! I have Creative Play for Your Toddler which I love and I think I’m going to love her next book just as much.
In my mug this week is a most delicious tea called creamy earl grey. I love the tea lady at my farmer’s market. Earl Grey isn’t normally my favourite but this is a really yummy tea.
I’m not sure how much knitting will be done this week. I have one sick little man who wants nothing more than to sit in my lap and watch “ha ha” (Curious George) or “dee go!” (Diego). The poor boy can’t breathe at all and all he will eat is oranges and applesauce. Hopefully this doesn’t last a full week like it did for his sister!
Exhibit A: a very sick boy with his blankey.
