Hat Machine

Entering that time period where I become a hat machine making hats for the great nieces/nephews. This year the boys, and one sister, will get Snow Bunnies. One sister will get Sadie’s Baby Hat. Since I gift these at Christmas, I thought I better get cracking on them. Oh, and one of the greats told his Mom that I was knitting him a red blanket like the first blanket I made him. I am? Well, you can bet I see a red blanket in my knitting future. Good thing is, it won’t be very big. For the first one I thought I was using super wash yarn, but I wasn’t. So it shrunk after washing. Evidently he wants it the same size. So how do I determine what size that thing shrunk to? Who knows.

In other hat knitting I finished the donation hat I started the other day. It came out shorter in length than the others. Not sure what I changed about the knitting of it. But it will fit some baby’s head.

Flecked the pom since I was running low on the aqua color. But I do like a speckled pompom, so it’s all good.

Now to get ready for the trip south to see my Diva Girl. It will be a shock going from 60-70 degree weather to 90 degree weather. Not sure my over heated body, thanks menopause, can take it! I seem to be even more over heated with this hip issue. Not sure if it’s the pain medicine or the fact my body is struggling to walk. Thankfully I was able to get the handicap placard and have arranged with the airline to receive wheelchair service to and from the gate, so it will eliminate some of the struggle. Just the thought of handling my bags, myself, and getting to and from the gate, was causing a wee mite of stress. Which then makes my body temperature soar. At least it is a direct flight so I don’t have to attempt a gate change during the trip.

I hope your weekend is full of the fun of Fall. Jeep Girl is in Seattle right now presenting her research, what fun. Hopefully she gets to see a lot of the area before heading back Sunday. And then she has a few days break from school so we are planning to go to a Pumpkin Patch to have some corn maze fun (a local business) and get some good eats!

  1. The hat is adorable:) I’m looking forward to seeing the requested red blanket. It’s great to know that knitted gifts are well received right.
    I’m so glad you got things sorted for your trip.
    Have a great weekend!

    1. If you admire and fawn over my knitting, you WILL receive more knitting! The other great-nephew has worn his Reindeer hat to shreds! I made that two years ago. I made a striped one for him last year, I guess it didn’t have the fun factor of the reindeer, so now it’s a bunny year.

  2. Always love seeing your adorable baby hats!
    That’s a good idea to use the wheelchair assistance service at the airport. Enjoy your trip and spending time with your girl. I bet she’s just as excited to see you!

  3. Glad to see you are able to knit, the hat is lovely! The pain will do mad things to the body and causes the body stress which in turn may elevate your menopause problems. I hot flash so bad sometimes I get sick. I feel your pain honey. I’m sure your girl will appreciate just seeing you and getting to spend time with you. So glad you were able to get wheelchair service, that is so necessary! HUGS Sweet Lady, saying prayers for you.
