Anyway, I was super excited when I got the pattern and started right away. It was late, I had a long day. My oldest just finished Kindergarten (and he's grown so much!). Apparently I can't count because I cast on the wrong number of stitches and nothing made sense after that. I started to have a beer (and my tolerance has gotten really low since dieting and exercising). I should have known better since I'm not too familiar with written patterns for knitting. I had to watch a few YouTube videos to clarify some of the instructions. Luckily, I'm a fast learner!Anyway, I pretty much had to frog it and start fresh the next day.
And coffee.... YES, COFFEE PLEASE!
We had some things going on during the day but I was able to finish it later in the evening. I ran into a hiccup in the pattern and let Destiny know. Luckily I watched a lot of YouTube videos when I first started on fixing various knitting mistakes.
I thought I could finish it outside while the kids played but nope, not when it involved water guns and water balloons! I got as far as almost closing it up and finished up in the house later.
My 2 little ones are 18 months apart and it fit both of them. The smaller one wasn't as cooperative! ha-ha
I worked the light colored hat in looser stitches so it was very stretchy and fit me! I made another using my normal stitch tension and it fit the little one much better! Of course, he wasn't too thrilled about it!
