So my hat came out too large, which was unfortunate. Not that I needed another tight-fitting beanie-style hat. So I blocked it taller so it came out as more of a beret. I’m not sure how I feel about it on my head, but at the very least, it looks cute on the Styrofoam head. The ribbing also came out too big, but that was fixed with a crochet bow. *shrug* I’ll probably wear it a bit. Maybe I’ll gift it. We shall see.

In other knitting news: I finished Watermelon, ends woven in and buttons sewn on and everything. So that will happen soon. I’m also working on (yet another) sweater, and seeing as it’s in bulky yarn (Cascade Eco) on 6.5 mm needles, it’s going pretty fast. I suspect I’ll be done by the end of next week.

Unfortunately, knitting is really all I have time for, thanks to school. That would also be the cause of my rather erratic posting schedule. My apologies about that, but I am trying to post more frequently. Probably not frequently enough for NaBloPoMo (post a blog post every day), but more frequently none the less. Knitting will happen. Crafts will happen. Stay tuned!
