Little blue hat

I think it’s safe to say that things are going somewhat back to “normal” and I’m not sure I’m a big fan. Life has just felt really busy lately. I do love getting together with my family again, though the parties have been fast and furious the last couple of months and my socialization muscle is still kind of weak and atrophied. I’m starting to do a little more in-person stuff for work, and it is good to see people again, but working from home was so simple. And our own renovation is still on hold while we wait for windows to be delivered, but we’re getting ready to sell a home we’ve been renting out, so we’re starting to do all the prep for that, painters and lawn care and realtor oh my!

I’m tired, I guess is what I’m saying. I’ve been feeling good the last few weeks, even with the usual dip after a party, but today I’m just … blah. So here’s my latest FO, a quick hat I knit up for a nephew who likes blue.

The yarn is some Koigu fingering from the stash, and the pattern is a 2×2 ribbed tube that I mostly improvised. I looked up the recommended length for a child-size hat and as I knit, I kept thinking, really, it needs to be longer? Isn’t this long enough for his little head? Well. His head is bigger than I realized so this hat will not last him as long as I’d hoped. Still, a winter or two is fine by me, and I’m always happy to knit a hat.

Happy Tuesday, friends.

  1. That’s a great looking hat, and it looks good on him 🙂 I agree, things opening back up now is a kind of mixed bag. It’s good to get out a little more, but for me a little socializing goes a long way 🙂
