A little late to the party today but you know what they say... Anyway, I have a few finished projects and one on the needles but all I managed to take a picture of this week was one of the finished Aviatrix hats I knitted for my daughter. As you can see in the second picture, it is a little small and I think I should have knit the 4+ size instead of the 2-4 years size (she is almost 3 but she is big for her age, the same size as her 4 y0 cousin in fact). Or maybe I should have just added one more short row section, hmm... I will have to try again. I will probably use the same yarn since this only took one skein and I have 4 left. It is 100% baby alpaca I picked up at a crazy craft sale in Minneapolis a couple years ago. It is so buttery soft and not at all itchy. I wish I would have bought more. I have been reading mostly blogs but also "The Temperament God Gave You", which my husband also read (well some of it). It is a short and good read that has shed some light on why my husband and I interact in some ways repeatedly with no good outcomes from these interactions. I think it will help us change the way we relate to each other or at least understand each other better.
And, just because I love this picture I am adding a cute fat Christmas baby picture to this post.
Go join Ginny for more Yarn Along fun!
