|Pretty Wool From London-town|
I cast on, and made it about 2" in when I realized I wasn't loving it. Something wasn't quite right. (Two somethings...my cast-on looked terrible). I decided to take it off the needles and try it on to see if that changed anything. It did and it didn't...once it stretched out the cast-on was fine, and the yarn was taking the pattern pretty well, but my forehead started itching like you wouldn't believe.
Poor thing ended up in the frog pond - I decided that it didn't matter how cute the hat was if no one would wear it. I am going to set the yarn aside for now. I think it might be a bag when it grows up.
So, today I decided to try again. I found a new pattern, and chose a different yarn. Except for the part where I missed two yarn overs two rows down (which, through my extreme lack of attention led to the loss of six total stitches...long story, it was dumb. Okay, that's actually a pretty short story), yeah so, except for that this next hat is turning out MUCH better. I tinked back three rows, fixed my boo-boos and am back on track.
Seems like October and I are not getting along as well as September and I did.
