That Darn Hat!

The Army Girl Ear flap Hat is nearing completion and it's a very, very good thing because I really did not like this pattern. It started out a little rough, got a little better and then once I got to the crown, I was lost again. It's kind of like knitting blind and I'm sure you all know what I mean by that. I felt as though the pattern was a little vague in explaining things and the way it was written was a little confusing. I'm not even so sure I like how it turned out! There is a positive to this whole thing... I learned two new techniques!!! On Saturday night Rhonda taught me the cable cast-on method and I also learned how to do an attached i-cord.

That's it for me today, just a short little post. Going out to one of our Ontario Early Years Centres very shortly (Paisley calls it playgroup). For any parents (in Ontario) who have never heard of OEYC, you should check out their link to find a centre in your area, it's a great place to take your kiddies. They have all kinds of fun and activities for them there as wells as it allows them to interact with children in their own age group. Did I mention that it's free too? I believe it's for children 0-6 years old.
