YarnAlong: With Time Travel
Silas calls this book LlamaLlamaLlama! We read it a lot. It goes back to the library on Saturday, and I think it's going to end up under the Christmas tree this year.
I started another Cedar Shakes hat, this time for Ezra. The Paton's Kroy is considerably thinner than the yarn that I used for Silas' hat, so even though I cast on for the same size (toddler), it's turning out rather smaller and with a slightly open fabric. I'm debating whether or not to start over with smaller needles and working the child size instead. The outcome might be the same. Ezra at 10 months already has a head the circumference of the average child's, an issue we ran into with Silas as well. There are some baby clothes that we literally cannot get over these babies' mammoth heads, and their little caps fit for about fifteen minutes.
Silas hat, made with a heavy fingering yarn that still had a substantial fabric on the 4's, still fits him two years later.
Assuming this kid IS actually the child in question. Where did my little chubby-faced baby go?
Two years ago. Never mind where the cheeks went, where did the time go?
