Sometimes knitting is a journey, and sometimes you find you've knit a life.

Shelly my dear, I apologise for taking so long to post this. Your daughter is adorable and I miss you.
Everyone, let me present Shelly's hat for Katherine.She had actually finished it when I left, but this was earlier in the day. These hats point out how important gauge is. We had three women with identical yarns, identical needle sizes, identical patterns and mondo different gauges. One needed 75 stitches to get 22 inches, one needed 80 to get 23.5, and one needed 80 to get 18. A swatch lesson in there somewhere.
