I like to knit… I make scarves, hats, felted purses, fingerless gloves. I just bought a book to learn how to make socks two at a time.
My brother asked me to make him a hat. So, last Thanksgiving we were at their house and I was finishing it up. It was too big. Since it was wool, I thought I’d felt it a little. Well, it came out more like a yarmulke. Damn. There must be a way to save it… it actually kind of looked like it would fit my niece.
“Abby… come here! Want a hat?”
But, it was plain black. It needed to be girlier. I found a flower pattern online and made my first flower. It came out so cute, as you can see.
And, yes, I made my brother another hat. Smaller this time.
