C asked my for a new winter hat the other day. Actually he asked for a whole new set of winter gear (that’s virtually a quote), but it being March I can’t bring myself to go that far. I’m into my hoodies-for-summer-nights phase already, for God’s sake. But I did take the opportunity to attempt my first hat knit from the top down – the only project I worked on over the weekend. It came out a little short as I ran out of yarn, but it’s good enough I guess. He likes it, and next year O&T will too.
