You will all be happy to know that I am still failing at this stupid damn hat.
It’s not deep enough for the head parts yet and I went and convinced myself that it wasn’t big enough around either. My knitting compadre/officemate has informed me that “no, I think it’ll be ok if you just make it deeper.” So, I will resist tearing it completely out again and just pulling it back past the reduction to add another inch and a half or so. Best case scenario, I add another inch to the inner and outer bits and it is the perfect size. Worst case, I have to take it entirely apart again and start from scratch.
I probably shouldn’t complain, as knitting wouldn’t be interesting anymore if there weren’t any challenges, and it didn’t make me tear my hair out in frustration every once in a while. It’s part of the charm!
Also, I got off the train this morning and another guy that got off the train walked about 5 steps before pissing all over the floor right in front of me. But it missed me, so I got that goin for me.
