I finished up my new fall scarf. I used this pattern for a multidirectional diagonal scarf and my yummy dazzle yarn. Now that it’s finished I’m not sure if I like it. You think I’d notice this while working on it but I have a weird “project in progress” blindness that keeps me from determining if I think it’s working until after it’s complete. isn’t that handy? I liked the way the dazzle looked in stockinette stitch better than garter stitch, smoother, while this is definitely nubby. But I’m sure I’ll love it to death in about 5 minutes. Like I said yesterday, I’m a fickle pickle.
The last time I made barrettes they were much sexier but I’m an old lady now and I wear things like knit barrettes. I’m happy with how these turned out but the barrette mechanism I bought sucks! I’ll have to hunt around for something more sturdy.
Knitting those barrettes with the tiny size 2 needles reminded me of this hat I knit for Oscar last Winter when he was a tiny baby. I dug it out and it still fits! Thank goodness because it took me FOREVER to knit and I think he wore it once. Here he is then and now.
