Last week I was fretting and complaining and moaning about my most two recent FOs being hideous. Am I being a bit too critical? Maybe...I still don't care too much for this hat. However, the other hat has stopped looking hideous.
Looking at it now I can't remember what it is that I didn't like....I am not seeing the mistakes I made. I am not complaining this time around either. Lesson:- sometimes we have to give ourselves time and distance away from our projects in order to see beyond the mistake.
I love the polka dots. Thinking of other colour combos for the next one I will knit. What I love most about this pattern is how fast it knitted up. Baby/toddler items always make me feel like a fast knitter.
Don't you just love the back of this hat? I do
What to do when you have nothing to block your hat? Use a balloon and a vase. These are the moments I feel like watching Macgyver paid off :)
