Kinda Disappointing.

I came home from work last night with it set in my mind that I was going to knit up some baby hats. An anchor at work is 6 months pregnant and wouldn't it be cool to have a few things knitted up for her... no problem! yeah right.

So I was so dead tired last night... but did that stop me from sitting in my living room floor with yarn that was supposed to be a scarf for me, and make baby booties?? Nope. They are cute, and they were not hard at all! I am learning!!!! what a concept! lol.

So today, I start the beginning of several baby hats. Well I only had one hat pattern... a 2x2 rib... so I thought, easy! I will just size it down and go with that as one of them. Well I spent all day on it... going back & forth in my brain if it was going to be too big or too small. So finally, I bind off and sew it up the back.

le sigh. So it's currently being blocked on an onion. Too Small. Way Too Small. I know a smelly onion isn't a good thing to block it on, but really it wasn't too smelly and I will probably never meet anybody with a head that small. poopy.

So I found a cute little hat pattern on the internet. Seed st for a few rows then the stockinette st for the rest. Easy, peesy. But crackhead me, didn't pay any attention what so EVER to the needles it called for. I was going back & fourth in my brain again for about 4 rows of seed st. .... "hmmm this looks BIG, cant this be right?" So in my 5th row of seed st, it hits me.... wrong size needles, dummy!

So it calls for 3 mm and I am using 10. Huge difference, much?? Such is my life, people. But! There is a slight upside. It seems it may be able to fit my sister.... and it's in the color that I was going to make her a scarf anyways. So from newborn baby to 25 yr old sister.

Oh well.

I Give.

Hat Of Fugly Yarn: 1

Tammy: 0

It wins I lose. Or maybe it's the opposite... maybe I win, and it loses because I frogged it today. I cannot work with that yarn anymore... I am going to finish up the scarf... another 5 inches maybe? Then it's over. No more, no more! I give.

The Dreaded Yarn

This is derek's mom's hat. Bah. Just thought I would post a picture of the yarn I hate so much!

I do have a few more rows on it now, however. Worked on it some yesterday, while I waited for the tow truck to show up.

So yeah, I'll be happy when this is over. It's supposed to be a knit 2, purl 2 pattern, but I am just using the knit stitch, not the purl, I want to see what it looks like.
