I revised my Owl Hat pattern and finally finished knitting the baby size - I was knitting and measuring as I went along because I wasn't sure if my math was correct. Instead of decreasing one row then knitting a row I decreased two rows then knit a row and the hat ended up 5 1/2 inches in height which is exactly what I wanted. I guess I will have to add another decrease option into my instructions. I just have to add the beads to the eyes now to completely finish it - I just have to remember where I put them. LOL If I don't find them then I think I will just do some french knots to accent the eyes. Now I just need to find some more time to knit the other sizes to see if my math is correct. As soon as I knit a couple more sizes I will add the revised pattern for download - right now it is still the old pattern - just one size.
I decided that the baby blanket I was crocheting was not turning out the way I wanted so I ripped it all out and went with Smooth Fox's Round Ripple 8 point pattern on Ravelry. I am using Caron Simply Soft - colors Grape, Limelight, Blue Mint and White. I just love the way it is turning out and sure hope I get it done before the baby arrives - he was due Feb 5th.
Well mother nature decided to give us warmer weather but as a result we got over a foot of snow on the ground - so a good day to stay inside and keep working on the blanket.
