But I don’t think it is going to fit him. Sigh…. Oh well, it fits me, and it didn’t take very long, so I can make a bigger one- if I get more of that yummy, yummy Alpaca. But maybe not in black. The hat is washed and blocking, so I will take pix of it tomorrow. I just hope the damned thing is dry by Friday so I can give it to him. There’s enough of the Alpaca left to make a scarf. I am doing it in a pattern of 6k/6p, which I THOUGHT would be ribbed, but it’s just striped. Maybe it’s the fact that the yarn is sport weight, held doubled, on size 10 needles. Let’s just say it has a lot of drape. Oh, well. No biggie. It’s still a scarf. And the black yarn is making me blind, so I’m not ripping it out and starting again. I’m already 6 inches in.
And I bought 15 pair of 7” bamboo dpns- size 0 to 15 on Etsy for 30.00 plus shipping! I need these like a hole in the head. And apparently, I need a hole in my head, because they’re on their way. Now I can pretend I am a real knitter. lol I will make the next hat on them. I promise. I will use the size 0’s as toothpicks, or to clean under my nails. NOT to make socks.
