I recently marked something in my Ravelry project page as an FO. I did this sort of incorrectly, as it is not really finished, but it’s been so long since I’ve been able to do this, that I did it anyway.
The object in question is this:
You will recognize it as the twin of a hat knit by the Chicken Goddess, only hers is better-fitting and truly finished. I like to think that I enjoyed this so much that I knit it twice, and here is the proof:
Looks like two hats, you say. Well, well. How observant! It is indeed two hats, one knit on smaller needles and one knit on the correct needles. The one knit on smaller needles ended up being a large bun cover, and fits Lemmy Kilmouster nicely (you’ll just have to trust me on that for a bit, because I seem to have forgotten to upload a photo).
So I got another set of needles out, started from the outside of the ball of yarn, and knit another hat. This hat is the right size everywhere but the brim, which is much too large. I shall have to frog it back to where the band starts, and re-knit that part on smaller needles. I appear to have forgotten how much looser my purl stitches generally are. I’ll not make that mistake again.
I have gone to and from Virginia with Jennie, and appear to be only slightly exhausted, but in a good, happy kind of way. I got to spend time with a favorite author, plus many friends I only get to see once a year at DragonCon. I really wish everyone did not live so far away. It’s difficult to hang out with people who are in Virginia when you are in Georgia. It makes going out for pizza together kind of a trek.
Later today, or perhaps tomorrow, I will give my thoughts on Dhoom2, which is far superior to Dhoom, and a really entertaining 3 hours besides (though Baobh likens it to rap music, which I do not see but can respect).
