A Wee Bonnet

I took part in a Hat Swap/KAL on Ravelry and just finished, albeit a few days late, the hat that I’ll be sending to my swapee for her little niece. Scout seems to like the hat so much that I’m going to make one for her as well. It’s the first time that she hasn’t thrown the hat off when I got her to sit and model. I’m going to take that as a sign.

This is a Knitty pattern, which if you didn’t know there is a new one up filled with a number of gorgeous patterns ready to be knit on my your whim!

Scout really likes that it ties under her chin too, she keeps fiddling with them.

I’m glad I could finally share a FO with you. It’s been such a long time. In all honesty I’ve been restraining myself from starting anything new. The truth is a few days ago I was reading all those wonderful blogs you creatives have and I became insanely jealous overly concerned that I wasn’t living up to my potential when comparing my UFO’s with some of your FO’s. I know now that I have taken on too much. With that, I’ve attempted to work on giving myself a bit of a balance. There certainly not enough hours in the day to give each project the deserved energy and focus each needs. I am trying hard to keep focus on current projects so that, when the time comes, I will be able to work on one project for myself. Guilt free. (What a concept!)

My one page list has slowly, but surely, begun to dwindle. I’m happy that I’m making leeway, though I’m unhappy that I don’t have much to share. My contribution to the craft blog world is nil. My promise to you is that this will change. And soon.

  1. What a lovely bonnet. I tried my hand at one this season and it didn’t turn out nearly as cute as this. Ah well, it’s a good thing I love knitting: I’ll just make another one. I love how this one evokes summer and the beach with the brim, but warns of a chilly winter with those earflaps 🙂

  2. Darling bonnet! wow. i know how you feel about people doing so much. but you have two children to care for. and a husband. and pets! and i cannot imagine how you remain so productive with all that going on, too! i hope that after the initial first weeks of new mother zombiehood, that i can manage half as many finished items as you!
