The welsh boy is quite supportive of my knitting (not so supportive of my love of knitting shops and generally sits in the corner whinging that he doesn’t understand why i’m taking so long) and has been asking me for a long time to knit him a hat.
He’d chosen the yarn – a Freedom Spirit Chunky in a lovely deep jade/orange colourway – he’d chosen the pattern the fabulous Aaron’s Hat - I just never got round to knitting it. I’m not sure if subconciously previous stories of relationships turning sour halfway through the knitting of a boyfriend jumper had kept it at the back of my queue but in any case the yarn and pattern sat there for almost 6
months before I finally got round to knitting it.
Anyway, it’s done, it’s a lovely pattern – it’s a great easy tv knit which probably wouldn’t have taken more than a couple of evenings if I’d set my mind to it. I’m a bit worried it’s a tad small, but the Welsh Boy seemed pleased when I showed him the picture and I’ll just have to wait until next weekend to see if it fits…..
