These days getting the kids to school on time is challenging. I am not a morning person. I do not like mornings. Getting out of bed is hard work, especially in the dark and cold. Getting out of bed in the dark and cold after a night of disrupted sleep (is there any other kind?) is, well, bordering on the impossible. Let’s not think about my carbon footprint and water use once I finally make it to the shower. Today is the year’s shortest day. Hallelujah! It’s all onwards and upwards for the next six months. We made it. We’ve been making it to school eventually too. (And where is my merit certificate for that? We’re is my encouragement award? … or better still where is my cappuccino? Seriously why doesn’t someone park a coffee truck near the school at drop off time???)
My little Ode has been making it to school drop off with a toasty warm head too… thanks to the cute green hat I knitted up for him.
This hat is all part of my acrylic yarn stash busting enterprise. I adore the shade of green. Ode loves it too. What’s not to love about a hat with two tassels? This hat pretty much lives in the car now, ready and waiting to be thrown on his head at the last minute on a cold morning.
It was super easy to knit. It’s knitted up flat, a short scarf folded in half and sewn together with mattress stitch. If you’re new to knitting you could really give it a go. If you’ve been knitting for ages and looking for something quick and easy you’d probably enjoy it too.
