Charlie’s Christmas Hat

Charlie's Hat

I love knitting hats and Charlie looks really cute wearing them, so he’s building quite a collection. When I needed a stranded knitting refresher, I pulled out the pattern I used when I was first learning and adapted it to the basic hat pattern I always use. The stitch count worked out perfectly and both Erica and Charlie liked his hat:

I hate to jinx myself by even mentioning it, but I’ve had a lot of self discipline in sticking to a reasonable number of WIPs (works in progress). And so far this year (ha!) I’ve managed to knit every single day — even if it’s just a few rows. I’ve lost count of the times I’ve stopped myself from buying more yarn by reminding myself that I can consider it only when something moves from “in progress” to “completed.” Yet I still continue to tempt myself by browsing Ravelry and adding items to my queue and my favorites. One thing is certain — between Ravelry and Pinterest, I have insurance against sudden loss of inspiration. Speaking of Pinterest, if you would like an invitation, please let me know and I’ll send you one!

    And I would love a Pinterest invite if you don’t mind. It seems like a lovely site to use (I keep coming across it via StumbleUpon).

    I love those cheeks! (Though I suspect they look way cuter on Charlie than they would on me, LOL!)
