Being Bartholomew Cubbins
When your mother is a knitter, and you happen to mention that you like handknit hats, you may eventually begin to feel like a certain Dr. Seuss character.
If this knitting mother has a few hours, while she's sitting in a Long Island amusement park listening to your sister sing, she might just grab some yarn and needles and make you another hat. This will only serve to heighten the feeling that you live in the Kingdom of Didd.
Given your abundance of hats, you might get a little pouty because your school's dress code doesn't let you wear your hats all day long. Some of those classrooms are a little chilly in the morning, you know.
Yarn: Autunno Di.Ve, 100% Merino, Color #31208 & 34048 - Purchased at Modern Yarn.
I cannot sing the praises of this yarn loudly enough. It is just about the softest thing I've knit with, and the colors are gorgeous. I don't think the photos shows it very well but the colors very subtly change, from light to dark, warm to cool.
Pattern: None, I made it up as I went along. I didn't have any graph paper with me, so this one was really knit on the fly. I cast on 80 stitches.
Needles: Addi Turbo, US 9 (5.5 mm)
Thanks for all of your kind comments on the photo of myself in the last post. I wasn't really looking for compliments, but it sure was nice.
