A Handy Mistake



I'm thankful for having a variety of head sizes around here-- I loved this "star crossed slouchy hat" (free download on Ravelry) but didn't have quite the right circular needle size (I'm guessing mine were around an 8 rather than an 11)... and apparently that's just fine, because it results in a perfect little toddler hat. And then once I did get a hold of some size 11 needles, I had enough yarn left in my ball of yarn to make an adult hat, too (will possibly take pictures when I am no longer a sniffly mess). I love it when mistakes work out like that.

I love that hat! I will have to try making it for my three year old. Perfect since I don't think I have any 11s either, but I do have 8s!

The hat is so sweet.

You are awesome. Really, quite impressive. Did I mention to you about the Amish quilters and how they always included a mistake in their quilts on purpose so that they wouldn't be perfect (because only God is perfect)...?

Ha! I could be Amish! Although not on purpose... I think my work has plenty of mistakes the old fashioned way. ;-)
