So, I finished my knitted hat project… booya… and much to my delight it fits over the monstrous noggin I’ve got going on up in this here joint. I’d like to say that the bigger the noggin, the more brains… but come on… we ALL know that ain’t the truth. Pea-sized is pretty smallish.
You will notice that I haven’t dared to trim the hangy strings yet… I’m afraid I will somehow unravel the sucker. So, I’ll just tell people they are the rip cords for the built-in parachute I done knitted into my hat project. Because I refused to have a pom pom hanging out on my head, there’s also a hole in the top of the hat… most likely a representation of my leaking brain cells!
It’s a miracle I finished it alive and well. I was getting nervous as I was knitting along and my hands were turning blue. I was sure it was poor circulation and I almost drove myself to the emergency room. Thank goodness I washed my hands before I left and it washed the blueness off. False alarm… just a Smurfing episode. Come to find out blue/purple yarn dye is the bleediest of the bunch! None of the other class had my same problem, so I consider myself extra special… it was a dagnabbed Smurfey Blessing! I can’t wait until I wear it outside, take it off and my whole head is dyed blue!!!!! I’ve always wanted to look like a blueberry! Bring it on, Smurfette!!!
Have a splendiferous weekend, my friends. Thanks for reading my ramblings… even if most of the time I make as much sense as a parachute sewed into a knitted hat!
