Last on knitting with Hillary we’d just seen her realize that the hat she felted with blood, sweat and tears (and tennis balls) wasn’t going to match the new Fall coat that is on its way. I had one skein of this beautiful deep purple Sulka yarn that was a total impulse buy (one of those yarns that you can’t not buy after touching) and did a little head measuring and tried again. I thought it would be cute to be all bobbled but I couldn’t figure out how to decrease and keep the pattern so instead it has 4 rows of bobbles and then purl stitch with decreases to a cute little acorn point. After I adjusted to thinking the hat was turned inside out because of the purl stitch out bit, and ignoring that it’s a little too small, I really like it. Phoebe of course just wants it off her head. Guess it’s time to start a project that can’t be so easily ripped off.
