Check out Teddy in his authentic seaman's cap! What better to keep his head warm on those cool nights sailing the Pacific Ocean. In his free time, Teddy is working on a striped sock that he feels really brings out the brown of his nose. Just a couple more inches to go before the heel flap - go Teddy go!!
Well, it's not actually Teddy's cap. It's a birthday present for my husband and it fits his head a little better then it does Teddy's. Sort of. I made up the pattern myself and started decreasing when I was getting short of yarn. The decreases are a little funny because of the ribbing (which I have no idea how to decrease and made it up as I went along) and the length is a little funny because it's a little long to wear unfolded and a little short to fold up. Oh well, it's the love that went into it that really matters!
**An update on the blocking of my lovely hoodie sweater... I attempted to create my own way of blocking. I figured if I wore the sweater, the bottom hem would naturally unroll because of gravity. I wore it a couple of days last week, tugging at it whenever I remembered and no luck. It still rolls up (but it's very warm and cosy!) It looks like I will have to try the traditional blocking method of wetting and pinning it (sigh) and I had better hurry because I see grass peeking out from under the snow. (Yay!)
