I set out to make a knit hat for L (the teal one). I used one the knitting looms that I’ve been using with my Jr Youth Group; we’re learning to make hats and scarves so that we can donate them this fall. After it was done I realized the yarn was not stretchy enough and it would never fit so I used the maroon one. Well, that one stretches nicely, but it was still too small so I’ve embellished them for a couple smaller wee ones and I hope they’ll fit! On to a larger size next time. And now I know that this particular loom is no good for older children much less adult hats.
Cheers

I finished the first year’s worth of embroidery just in time for L’s second birthday. This will be an ongoing project throughout his first 18, well, 19 years. I previously wrote about it here. These are some of my favorite parts for last year. His second year is all written out and ready for me to keep working.
