I’m not feeling too well right now, so I just ate some crackers with peanut butter in an attempt to feel better. I’m not sure what my logic is there, but hey. I heard once, like yesterday, that Saltines are supposed to be good to calm the stomach. I can’t say I’m nauseous, but I can’t say I’m not nauseous either. I can’t really put my finger on it. It might just be fatigue… I only got about four hours of sleep last night and have been up 12 hours now. I’ll make an effort to go to bed early tonight, promise.
I went to bed so late last night because I was working on crocheting a beret. I got really into it and didn’t want to stop. That is totally what she said.
Aaaanyway, I hadn’t knitted or crocheted anything in about two years, and I’ve been wanting to knit a scarf, but I decided to do a small little project to start things off. A hat can’t be too hard…
WELL, look how it came out. xD
I think it’s because I used a 5-mm crochet hook instead of the recommended 6-mm one. Plus, I didn’t check my gauge (where you crochet a square and see whether the amount of stitches necessary to get to a certain measurement matches what the pattern says). But I mean, you would think that would just lead to a smaller hat. Not a CONICAL hat. I’m not really sure how the pattern I used could have possibly yielded a beret-shaped hat.
This is how it was supposed to have come out:
I still have about three inches left to stitch up where the little ribbed band connects to the rest of the hat. I might get around to it sometime before next Wednesday and bring it home for my mom. She likes to keep my little screw-ups. She must think it’s cute or something. I’d gladly just throw it away… sad about the waste of time and yarn though. 🙁
