who knitted a hat?

It was me! My second one, to be exact. The first one I picked up after it sat next to the comfy chair for three weeks, circular needles darting me the stink eye. I threw the newspaper on top of it, but I still knew…

The first one I finished was small enough to fit a child’s head. That I give away. But the second one, above, is much better and would fit my head if my hair wasn’t so big.

It fits my husband’s nicely, as he modeled it while donning a french accent. I don’t see it replacing his caps anytime soon.

Between knitting,ย  reading, administering (wrestling) medicine to an injured kitty and really good intentions of working out, seems overall there is goodness found in the dead of winter’s yawning. Like a finished hat.

The animals and I are ready for real spring. And in spring, we’ll be ready for summer. And in summer, fall. And in fall, spring. We’re a never-satisfied bunch.

Well, I better go. I have hats to knit and a workout to do.

South Dakota cattle

Wait, what’s that cows?

You need me outside?

Your lady is on her way!

  1. I didn’t know you had so many beautiful cows! I love cows. We used to live across from the cow pastures at the University of Connecticut many, many years ago. I think your hat turned out very well. I’ve thought of taking up knitting again, but I wasn’t terrific at it when I used to do it, also many, many years ago. It would be nice to knit caps for Christmas.

  2. I am pleased to see you share about hat journey. gotta love that stink-eye!

    Bumpy few days here, in reality and in overblown perspective. Your hats reminded me that I can show up or not. thanks!

    • Nice! This pattern requires a knit and pearl, but to be honest, I am not sure I am pearling. I was doing it for a while, but that’s what you get for setting it aside to collect dust. Oh well, put a button on in and it doesn’t look so bad ๐Ÿ™‚ Good luck with your knitting! We can knit-talk now.

  3. I wish I could knit..my co-worker does and she makes the cutest hats & scarves..yours turned out really cute

    ah yes, spring is on the horizon. Patience….

  4. Lovely hat, love it! You are so artistic. I was surprised to learn that you have so many cows, wow that is a lot of cows, they all look so cute too! Love your blog.

  5. I love the cows calling you outside! Hats and workouts can wait! No matter how much I have to do inside…it’s usually housework, ugh…whenever any of our animals calls, cats, dogs, pigs, goats, rabbits, geese, chickens, guineas…whoever, it’s outside I go! And even quicker now that spring is almost here in Arkansas. In fact the trees are all budding!!! Hopefully no last frost is on it’s way!!! Have a wonderful day!!!

  6. Gorgeous hat! I love love love the cow pictures, especially the last one. We have cows right in our backyard but unfortunately I never get to see them up close much (but then, I don’t get to smell them up close much either so I guess it evens out…)

    • lol, a yearly cleaning of the yards means you smell nothing! however, drive past the hog farms and your stomach will turn. And thanks for the compliment! I am happy to have made it to this point in knitting. Now I need to learn to sew better (I am using the emergency kit a bridesmaid gave me for my wedding).

  7. Love those cattle pix, especially the first one with most of the herd romping in the background.

    As for the knitting, I once upon a time, many, many decades ago, tried to knit a sweater in a home economics class. I failed totally and have not picked up needles since. But I think you are on the path to success with your knitting.

  8. Just came across your blog and thought it was great! It looks beautiful where you guys live. Makes me want to run far and fast away from the city. Something I hope to eventually do once all this school-stuff is done!

    Happy blogging!

  9. Your husband modeled one of these hats, and you didn’t post photos!? For shame.

    I was telling my wife, recently, that I love it that some people find the time to make these little hats for newborns. I mean, how great is that. And each with its individual style and flare.

    Way to prioritize the cows, by the way. ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. Knitted shoes: its amazing, different idea of its kind. I would never be able to get time for learn knitting stuff, unless I am sentenced to jail and have a lot time there for these activities ๐Ÿ™‚
