Olivia got her hat on time for her birthday! And it was a big hit both with her, her friends (she bragged about it on Facebook) and my family.
It really is nice to know that something I made with love (she’s the closest thing I’ve got to a little sister) is equally loved by the recipient. That’s what being “knit worthy” is about. I’m going to delve more into what “knit worthy” means but for now, it’s about being a gracious recipient and not being demanding. I tend to tune out when people (usually strangers!) say “You should knit me a(n) <insert object here>. ” If there are two words in the world that I hate it’s “you should…” It’s quite bossy and snotty. Particularly if you’re talking about my craft!
I’m so happy that the hat fits and has just enough slouch that she likes. For more wonderful FOs, check out Tami’s blog.
