The Fishling's got a new hat. I figured I would 'wing' it with the pattern - I was getting 8 sts to the inch, and his head is 18 inches around... so I cast on 140 sts and knit and knit. I did about 2 inches of 2X2 ribbing and 5 inches of body (so I could fold over the ribbing or put it over his ears). But then at the end, I followed The Yarn Harlot's advice, and started decreasing every 8 sts, then 7 then 6... and I'm not sure if I like the top. It's not as smooth as I was envisioning.
It's cute nonetheless!
Or is it the baby that is cute? I can never decide. I used Ty-Dy sock yarn, and I really liked it! Nice and soft and I have a huge amount left. I'm considering mittens to match.
The Fishling has a new 'word' - he says 'Uh oh'! And I've learned that it is said a lot when I try to actually get him to WEAR the hat. I put it on, he pulls it off and says 'Uh oh!'.
