Wow! I did it! It took me only a few hours with some big, chunky, thick yarn, and, as promised, used up less than half a skein! I did it!
There were more than a few mistakes along the way, I must admit. Among them, forgetting how to do a cable stitch, for one. That accounted for about three unknit-reknit sessions all by itself, and I am very slow. And my faux-grafted seam could be better…lots better. But it was only my first time, so I think it looks pretty good, and also that I’ll make more! After all, the kids need a way to keep their ears warm too, and they would look so cute in these in some bright primary colors. Aneira, of course, will insist on pink.
I’m so proud of myself right now, I could do a Snoopy dance, but it’s nearly one in the morning, and my studio is directly above Aneira’s bedroom, so I think I’ll refrain. But I did it!!!
