First I'd like to Welcome my new nephew, Nikola Orrin to the family!
Nikola was born to my brother-in-law and sister-in-law on February 12th.
Now I mentioned I picked up my knitting again one reason is because I wanted to knit my new nephew a hat. Well here's the problem with that. I had never knitted in the round before! They wanted to start it with smaller needles than I had so I just thought, "I'll decrease the pattern." Well even if I hadn't decreased it I think I would have had a problem! It's a baby yamaka! It's just not tall enough! Over all I'm very disappointed with my handy work because of this. I think for my first time knitting in the round and my first time doing decreases that I actually did quite good I just wish the hat was the right size. I'll have to try again and my poor hands are screaming at me not to. While knitting in the round isn't especially hard it is very awkward.
Well I have a four day weekend after I get through today because the kids are off Friday and Monday so perhaps I'll start another hat. I'll be babysitting Friday though so we'll have to see. Today I get to come home and clean house because things fell apart around here pretty badly.
Here's my Baby Yamaka. I hope it gives you a good laugh for today. (Do you notice the ribbing on the bottom! I think I did the purl stitch right for once too! Horray!)
