In a slight fit of nesting frenzy, last week I made the decision that I was going to make my child at least one article that was completely handmade by me and only me. Since I had learned to knit when I was younger I thought 'Perfect! Of COURSE I can knit my child a hat at least!'
Determined as I was, this was the outcome of my first attempt.
Pathetic no? I contemplated sitting this lump of yarn on my newborns head and just pretending it was a hat, but that seemed sad, ya know?
HOWEVER, I persevered, watched some youtube videos that uh...refreshed...my knowledge of knitting, and tried again. And you know what?
Even if it is a little lopsided, I'm rather proud of myself!
In fact, once I mastered the basic idea of this hat, I got on such a roll that I made my nephew one as well, and boy oh boy did he look cute!
I think he looks just like an acorn. A sweet, chubby, blue-eyed acorn.
