I decided I could knit a simple beanie. A pattern I had used before. Some of you might remember one in a pretty teal blue. So here is the October beanie.
Did I say simple? Yes, knit 2, purl 2 all the way until you need to shape the crown. Even with simple I would be knitting along and find I had made a mistake in the previous row. Not once - several times. Apparently I can't count to two. I did finally finish it though, that's what counts.
I showed my daughter a picture and said it was a charcoal beanie, obviously the color. She replied "charcoaled?" - and said that must have been a Freudian slip, LOL. Yes, some of us have a dark side to our sense of humor.
Now I'm ready to cast on for another project. I'm pretty confident I can count to two these days.
