So, this year, for Christmas, I bought myself a box of yarn (and, um, some other things. Beside the point…). I maintain that it was not just for me. See?
That involved five different balls in and of itself! (I have no idea why he decided he needed to have his hand over his face.) He is such a cutie. Seriously, though, it takes some strenuous planning to create a hat cute enough for this child. Let’s have another look, shall we?
Pretty! Again with the hand – look, I don’t know. But he was giggling the whole time. I knit the hat flat (you can see the seam where I sewed it up) but I don’t like the floppy ‘corners’ you get when you just seam up a tube and put pompoms on it, so I decreased at the top so the pompoms wouldn’t have anywhere to go. (May I just say, as well, that those are the most fun pompoms I have ever made in my entire life.)
The only problem I have now is that Max is insisting I begin a hat for him immediately.
