Namesake – My Little One

20130330-221724.jpg

Ever since figuring out that we were pregnant a second time, the great search for a name began. Would it be a strong and bold name or a classic and wise name?

[Crafts] Wander’s Lament – Slouchy Beanie

I usually hate knitting hats, and prefer the instant gratification of crocheting hats, but I loved the color and pattern and decided to give it a go.

I did not anticipate so much hassle of trying to hand wrap a shank into a ball. FIRST MISTAKE! Next time I will need to purchase a swift or just go to the local yarn store to use their’s.

The knitting up of the double moss pattern was extremely quick! I was able to complete it within an accumulative 2 hours.

I will definitely be knitting this again.

Two corrections to the pattern:

1) 60cm circular needles are too long to join without having to knit using the “magic loop” technique.
2) On the fourth double moss pattern (or as they abbreviated it to DM), they note to “Repeat Row 2” which says to “Repeat Row 1” — I figured it out that it means to “Repeat Row 3” — DUH!

Also, the instructions says “13.5 stitches and 8 rows” to get gauge– How do you knit a 13.5 stitch to check? AI-YAI-YAI! O_O

Do you like the hat? Purchase one now from my Etsy Shop! It’s made to order and will arrive approximately 2 weeks.

Happy (2013) Pi Day!

Our Daughter Malia is 1 month old today. I can’t believe how quickly time flies by.

I lost my password to the blog or it got hacked. Either way, I had to hack my database to get access back, so that’s why it’s been so quiet for the last 3 months. I apologize for that and will be writing again more frequently! Pinky promise. 🙂
