I’m joining up with Ginny Sheller’s yarn along today. So, my first knitting attempt was a flop. I was using the wrong size needle + probably the wrong sized yarn, but I still learned a ton. For those of you who wanted to see how it turned out, here it is:
I could probably keep extending down the sides of it and make it into a real hat but that’s for another day. To redeem myself, I tried the pattern again with a chunky yarn + the right sized needles and within a day knitted up this sweet little hat for my daughter.
I still need to weave in the ends + attach ties somehow but otherwise it’s done + I love it! She seems to, also. My other kiddos all want one now. It’s a really easy fun pattern + I’m ready to try something a little harder! I’m probably going to try one other kind of child’s bonnet + maybe attempt my first shawl.
I am reading a couple of books right now, still finishing the last chapter of Jewel’s memoir + a starting on 7 Women: And the Secret of their greatness by Eric Metaxas. I’m really enjoying reading this version of Anne of Green Gables to my Phoebe girl. She loves a good chapter book with beautiful illustrations, and I love sitting to read with her when I can!
