No Better And Neither Are

You may remember the fellow on the left from such places as yesterday's blog post, when I referred to him facetiously as a hat. Still, I learned so much from knitting that guy I was able to make an actual hat by switching to smaller needles and casting on a number of stitches divisible by four, which a knit-two, purl-two rib needs. It's not pretty, but our friend on the right there is actually a hat.

Point: I can’t follow a pattern any better than I can follow a recipe, which I cannot do. Cannot!

The Loose Out Of Time

In the coldest, darkest weeks of last winter, the soup kitchen asked for hats, scarves and gloves. It seemed like a super-constructive idea to learn how to knit a hat, but I'm still a terrible knitter. Technically, this is a hat, though it looks like a bowling ball cozy. I don't want bowling balls to be cold, either. I guess.
