Another week has flown by and my tardiness is becoming a habit as I am late again for Ginny's yarn along post. I started knitting beanie hats and scarfletts last week but unfortunately the hats have been a bit problematic. The first one I knitted was a little bit small. I used the correct yarn and needles and my tension was knitting up right but I think the sizing of the pattern was wrong. For the second hat I tried a different pattern and that came out nearly big enough for me but finally after yet more unpicking and resizing it worked out and the hat will now fit a one year old nicely, with just a little bit of growing room. Is it just me or do you find sizing hats tricky? My last hat was a little beret which is a pattern I've used before and this turned out first time.
All the hats have now been labelled, wrapped and given to Barbara (my best customer) who had commissioned the three orders - I just hope they fit nicely and keep the little ones warm and cosy.
This week is school half term and I've been busy with my grandchildren so I'm afraid I don't have a new book to share with you. I'm still enjoying my Jo Nesbo novel but I don't seem to have had much time to settle down and read this week.
I hope if you have time you will pop over to read Ginny's, Chrissies and Tami's posts as I have joined in with all three link's this week.
Thank you again for your amazing comments they make me very happy.
