Somehow, this makes rational sense. Not sure HOW yet, but it does.
So last week's hat was looking a little,
Not that size matters, but it does look an awful lot like a child's hat.
Not that there is anything wrong with children's hats, or children for that matter, but I have several young nieces & nephews and refuse to be Aunt-Toni-of-the-boring-knitted-hat-as-a-gift. I'm a great lover of hand-made gifts now that I'm an adult, but as a child, they were a pretty big let-down--especially at Christmas.
This is just the ribbing of a stocking cap, which can stretch, so........is it wrong that I'm more excited about using up a ball of yarn than in getting a hat out of it??????? Yikes
Sometimes, we all need a little motivation. Sometimes, it's a pep talk. Sometimes, it's an idea. Sometimes, it's bribery.
Tonight I made a deal with myself. I can cast on this
if I will quit sulking about not being able to buy new yarn.
Sometimes being in touch with one's "inner child" is not really a good thing.
