Using the knowledge I gained knitting Sweet Teen's beret, I knitted one for myself.
Sweet Teen modeled it. (She's back at university now, and her mama's trying to create a balance between all kinds of activities and time to be at home. (My home is my haven, and I so value the time I spend here.)
I've learned that I really don't enjoy knitting with big needles and chunky yarn. They make my hands really tired compared with knitting lace weight, fingering, or worsted. But the hat has enough wool content that it should keep my head and ears warm.
This morning our church had a blessing for a new batch of prayer quilts made by our Victory Quilters. Many of these quilts are already making their way to family, friends, and colleagues facing cancer and other serious health challenges.
Happy quiltmaking and knitting,
