Easily Amused, As In the Reason It Takes So Long For Me to Knit This Hat

Skierhat2


I've been working on Caleb's Skier hat lately and it's been slow going. The knitting isn't difficult to do or even slow, but after every repeat, I sit and stare at the skier, going, " Oh look, he has legs! There's his other arm. That doesn't look like a head , but I guess it will in a few more rows."

And then I knit the next repeat and do the same thing. There are 4 repeats per round so you can imagine how long it takes to work each one. Finn seems to think it's lovely to snarfle and sneeze on, but he seems to developing quite a wool fetish anyway. I caught him trying to roll stealthily on some clean, drying socks the other day. I wonder if he should have been a sheep dog instead of a retriever.

Yep, it's slow going, but I'll get it done eventually.

Oh, and in case you're wondering, I got the hat kit from Bea Ellis - scroll down to see the hats.

Ahhh, I've been wondering what happened to that hat you started. Very handsome, sure to keep you son's head warm this winter.

Love the hat. It was a fun knit watching the skier emerge.
