Dec 16 – The gift knitting I did complete!  A family of hats for a family that means a lot to me.  I asked about color and went for it.  It was fun, even when the original blue hat turned out to be too … thin?  The yarn was finer than I thought and I didn’t like the fabric that resulted, at least not for the gift hat.  So I ended up knitting two blue hats.  The too thin one turns out to be perfect for wearing inside when I’m waiting for the woodstove to spread its glorious heat, which some mornings can take awhile.
