I'm having a delightful Friday evening. I just finished up a quick little knit while watching my favourite Christmas special ever: Frosty the Snowman!
This show is as old as I am. I have fond memories watching it as a child, and it still makes me giggle and smile to watch it now.
Here's the little hat I finished:
Pattern: Beaufort Hat
Yarn: Cascade 220
Needles: 4mm Addi Turbos
On Wednesday night I cut my finger pretty deep. Bad enough that I thought I was going to need stitches. I cut the index finger of my left hand with a knife slash when chopping some lettuce for Dexter's dinner. I'd just come back from walking him and I was in a hurry to sit down and knit. Haste makes waste, as the saying goes.
Needless to say, there was no knitting on Wednesday night. Thursday I went to work and found I could type and use my finger just fine. So I figured, if I can type, dang it, I can knit! Last night, I tried picking up my mittens again, but I found the two color needle work to be too hard. I needed a simple quick project that wouldn't task my finger. So I cast on the Beaufort Hat.
There was something about this pattern, that I just wanted to make it from when I first saw it. And it didn't disappoint. Quick, fun, and really pretty. I knew it would come out small, but there's a ton of stretch in it. Here it is on my son's head:
I was thinking of giving it to one of the teachers. Do you think it's too small? She has straight, black hair and I think it would look really pretty on her. Shouldn't a lace hat fit tight so that the lace is exposed?
Oh, and my finger is just fine. It feels a bit numb, but it's not swollen, or gaping and everything looks just as it should. Considering. Please excuse me if that was too much information. I was really worried for a while there, and I'm delighted that everything is turning out okay.
