Ta Da!


***Cue the trumpets and Ode to Joy***

Hallelujah! I have been "knitting" for six weeks now and finally, finally completed something! I made a hat for my baby, my sixteen month old baby, but still it's a hat for my baby!


No, he did not sprout horns, I know you're thinking that. I didn't say it was a good hat, geez


I really didn't think he would keep it on his head, figured I would put it on him long enough to get a few pictures and it would end up in his hope chest, but he wore that hat most of the afternoon like he was proud of it. Jacob, the child who cannot even LOOK at a hat, wants one too, so we are going "to town" on Friday so he can pick out some yarn and I will get started on one for him this weekend. Now, I am by no means an expert knitter. I, in fact, still suck at it. I anticipate that I will continue to suck at it for quite a while, but I am glad I now have something tangible to show for my blistered and calloused fingers.

Personally, I like the "horns." They give the hat personality. Never mind that he looks absolutely adorable in it! Congrats to you.

If you hadn't mentioned that you made the hat yourself, I may have left a different comment. But since you mentioned it was a do-it-yourself job, I'm very impressed.
