Because I have been doing a lot of lazy-boy sitting lately, I have been craving a knitting project. I headed out to a local shop called Athena Fibers on Saturday afternoon with a few ideas in mind. I picked up a couple beautiful balls of baby yarn, a needle gauge so I can actually tell what size some of the old needles I inherited are, and a row counter so I don’t have to use pencil and paper anymore to make hatch marks. The pattern I picked is called “Pixie Hat” by Debbie Bliss. I am proud to say I completed the gauge, a rather tedious first step to a pattern to make sure your sizing is going to come out like the pattern, and only had a few false starts. Let me just say I enjoy knitting, but I don’t think it is the easiest hobby–working with 4 needles at once!!! Here’s to hoping this little hat is well used and loved by the coming little one!
