My friend Aneesha has been asking me to help her advance her knitting for quite some time. She could already knit and purl, but wanted to move beyond a basic scarf. With friends popping out babies left and right, we decided baby hats were the perfect next step for this novice knitter.
Unfortunately, living more than 100 km apart, finding time to get together has been a challenge. But last night we decided a sleepover was in order - it would give her plenty of time to start and finish a hat while we were together so I could help her with any bumps in the road.
Of course, we got into the wine a little too early, so there was no actual knitting last night (but it was fun!). And when we finally got out of bed this morning we were refresh (and sober) enough to cast on.
Now she wants me to dig her up an easy bootie pattern....
Yes knitters, we've claimed another one!
