When all else fails.....felt
I knit this hat from the top down a few years back in lovely alpaca. It wasn't long enough. I added some purple trim. Still not a good look. A few days ago I felted it. I have a great little bowl now. it can take me awhile to admit a mistake....I never intended to knit a bowl.
I have to give Evergreen Knits a big thanks. She runs Wiknit.blogspot.com. Do you visit her contest site? She lists as many contests as bloggers want to tell her about. I think it must take a bunch of time. Thanks so much Evergreen.
I've been knitting the idot's dishcloth. THe colors are all springy and pastel. Maybe my Mom's basket will have a dishcloth inside. I make my parents little baskets. They made them for us for so long. She'sll say, "oh well now, why did you bother?" as she smiles and inspects her goodies. I'll say, "well, I didn't do it the bunny did."
The bunny will be visiting so early this year. Okay by me!
