a hat

September 8, 2010

i don’t get the appeal of knitting for babies.
besides that fact that it’s cheaper and faster.

i have done it since,
being a knitter,
it’s just one of those things we do.

but i don’t desire it.
i don’t fawn over baby patterns,
cooing at the ├╝ber cuteness.

most of the time i think people make babies look silly
and i just feel embarrassed for both baby and parent.

but then there’s this:

once again the knitting gods have made me their bitch
because i knit that. i knit a silly hat and kinda forgot that i did.

now the little shit finally fits into it . . .

. . .and it’s fucking adorable.


anyone know a good baby sweater pattern?
