Making a knitted newborn hat has become a ongoing challenge for me. The light pink hat per last week's Slow Sunday Stitching got messed up somewhere along a row while switching to DPNs from a circular. Lol.
Instead of trying to fix it and become frustrated, I chose a darker pink yarn to make a new hat. Psychological, it did not feel like I was knitting a redo ;-) This hat had a better result, but some of my decreases had a mind of their own. Oh, and those holes along the crown is enough for baby to loose heat.
More consistent tension is another goal. Knitting on circulars is relaxing and makes for a convenient, easy portable project. I am not going to give up nor am I ready for stripes.
Third attempt will start today on the patio while I watch our hummingbird before he/she migrates south. May you enjoy your slow stitching.
