In that last trimester of the pregnancy, sitting and knitting felt like the most relaxing thing in the world. I knit and knit and knit. Even when I didn't really have anyone to knit for - sort of binge knitting, if you can do such a thing - which left me with these three little hats, size 18 months to 3T. Now the yarn is 100% Aran wool and I actually went all the way to Ireland to get it. Back in my single-girl days, my friend Margaret called me and said, "Ummm.. Kelly? Do you want to go to Ireland?" And I said, "Umm.. yes." So we did. Now at the time, I didn't really know much about knitting. I'd made a couple scarves and only knew how to knit, not purl, but I was sure that I would learn one day so my quest for real Aran wool began. It wasn't hard. Seriously, there's probably a shop in every town there. I got a bunch of it but never used it until this year.
What to do with them? I thought that maybe, I would give one away. And maybe, just maybe, try putting the other two on etsy. Which to me is so very scary. But you never know... it could end up being only slightly scary.
So if you want to win the cozy, little, hand-knit, 100% Aran wool hat size 18m-3T pictured above, go ahead and leave a comment. I'll pick a name next Wednesday.
