Oh, dear. So the hat that was coming along swimmingly has drowned. I made a bad choice of when to start decreasing and using a bad pattern for a crown. I don’t think the hat is a lost cause but I’ll have to rip it back and I’m not emotionally ready for that yet. I’ll move onto another gift and come back to the hat. Stupid hat.
Just to put the holiday pressure on… we had our first snowfall overnight! It was gone by about noon but it was lovely while it lasted.
