So I went home and started working on something that now is a rather odd looking mess of a hat. It is a crossbreed between a French beret and a Scottish tam. Or something.
|Eiffel tower included for atmosphere.|
I am VERY pernickety so chances are that I will have to try and improve it in some way. But I would nevertheless appreciate some good advice.
While I have been considering what to do about the beret I´ve knit yet another little baby hat. It´s not for my niece this time, but for six-weeks-old Ebba – whose mother loves cats.
But I wasn´t happy with the top of this hat either to start with so it has also suffered a bit of a remake.
Somtimes I think that the knitting process involves a disproportionate amount of swearing and gritting of teeth.
But once something is finished I´m quite happy to let bygones be bygones and I tell myself that it was a one off. Next time it will all be smooth sailing...
