Pattern: Basic Hat from Ooh Baby Knits
Size: Adult (Cast on 80 sts)
Yarn: Lion Brand Wool-Ease worsted weight
Needles: Size 7 double pointed (homemade)
Modifications: I worked ribbing for 8 3/4", then stockinette st for 2 1/2". Had I known it was going to be for a boy, I'd have knit the ribbing length according to the pattern.
On a side note, I really like the patterns at Ooh Baby Knits. I was following her blog along when she stopped posting in March of last year. In June, her mom came on with a brief post, stating that her daughter, Michelle (blog's author) was having severe health problems, had just had surgery, and was requiring nursing home care while she recuperated. There have been no posts since that time. I prayed for her every day for several months. I began to wonder if the prayers are still needed. :-( She was a young woman with children, and it grieves my heart to think how her family must have suffered, as well as her. By any chance, does anyone reading this know anything about her? I assure you, I am not asking out of a morbid curiosity.
We are having lovely fall weather here in north Texas. It's still a little warm in the afternoons, but the lower humidity makes being outside a sheer delight. My little Leyna is loving it, too. When Mommy isn't grumpy from being hot and sweaty, Mommy takes her on longer walks, and more of them. I hope you're enjoying your fall!
