This weekend would have gone a lot differently if I was in charge. For instance, I would be giving you a birth announcement right now. Instead, after rushing to the hospital Saturday night at 11:50pm, we were sent home Sunday morning at 5:30am with little to no sleep and the nurse’s sympathy. And I’m still huge. And my daughter is still being stubborn. 😉
Meanwhile, I’m enjoying knitting to a ridiculous degree. No sooner did I finish the smaller booties than I started on a ruffled hat. It was my first attempt at knitting-in-the-round, and I was so intimidated by the thought of using double-sided needles that I avoided it until the last end of uttermost need. I also needed to go out and purchase some. Hours before I was hospital-bound, there I was in Hobby-Lobby filling my basket with yarn skeins and knitting needles. Nesting? Probably. 😉
So on Sunday I amused myself by finishing the hat project. I had a feeling it would be a little larger than anticipated–and a few rounds more would have made it fit a big baby head…
But the project wasn’t a complete wash–I wove a long string of yarn around and made it into a little pink mob cap, now capable of fitting a much smaller head.
So will it fit Munchkin? I hope to find out soon. Meanwhile, I’m going to try again. Besides, two of the boys have commissioned non-ruffled hats of their own, so I need to practice! 🙂
