It was actually freezing first thing, but not so cold that a hat was needed!
I think it's safe to say that she loves the hat!
The pattern is from Ravelry and is the " Norwegian Star Earflap Hat" by Tiennie.
It's been a long time since I tackled an intarsia design since I often lack the patience with following the charts. Thankfully the design was only spread over fifteen rows, so I figured even me with my "need it done now!" attitude I could cope.
I was unsure of my gauge and so decided to ere on the side of caution and knit on smaller needles, using the adult pattern as my guide. The hat is a little bit big, but I would rather it was this way round than too small. It'll be like her pixie hat that I made when she was six months old and she was still wearing it at two!!
On my needles at the moment is a pink square as part of a yarn bombing cause and with the left over wool from the Milo, I'm hoping to knit a hat or bootees.
My reading material is this book:
It's interesting reading the book as a non pregnant woman, for a start I no longer cringe at the stages of labour part, since for once it won't be me actually doing the hard work. I am however very mindful of my role as a birth partner and no doubt as the due date draws nearer, I will be more than a little apprehensive. Still, I have another six months to get my head around it all, so all is calm for the time being!
