To be honest, I was worried about the tight fit of my Breaking Waves hat, and thought I might have to give it to the Wee Girl. However, after a wash and blocking it over a bowl, it fits great!
Today I picked up a few yarns to whip up some cowls for the Wee Boy’s school fundraiser. I chose BIG yarn, hoping that they’ll be really quick projects.
Last night I was so excited to have reached the decreases on my Breaking Waves hat!
To fix it without unknitting each stitch, I inserted the needle into the stitches of the row I was aiming for. The I pulled the needle out, and frogged a few rows until I reached the needle . and rewound the yarn .
The kids and I spent most of the day with our friend in Petaluma, where we had a great visit and great food, walked a lot, admired some gorgeous old houses, and even managed to hit a quilting shop which was conveniently on the way to lunch. 😉
I managed to leave with only two small notions I needed, and a small “scrap bag” that I merely wanted.
Confession: when I peeked in the bag, I’d thought the top fabric was deer, so I was a bit surprised later to find that I’d chosen dairy-themed fabric! Maybe I’ll make things for my family back in Wisconsin, eh?
My friend also gave me this incredibly adorable insect-themed fabric! I’m pretty sure it’ll become cute things for kids.
Phew! That was a long day, but totally worth it.
Gah!! How cute are those dimples!!! What better motivation to finish up my current bear(s)???
