Well I ended up gifting Courtenay in a Yankee Swap we had for a christmas party with my knitting group. It’s always so nerve racking when you gift a knit like this hoping that the recipient who ends up with it will like it.
Michelle liked it so much she traded for it!! There was of course one *small* problem…. the hat which fit on my head just wasn’t big enough for Michelle so I told her no problem I’d frog back and add an extra repeat.
Yarn arrived for Sailing and I really needed to hunker down and get it done so the adjustment was put off for a bit. Then I ran out of yarn for Sailing and I had to wait for more to arrive so I pulled the hat out and added some length and volia!
I’m hoping this works for her, that extra repeat really made a difference.
