Friday night my sister-in-law called me and told me that my niece needed a hat with earflaps. I'd knitted her a red hot chili pepper hat, but her ears were getting cold. This, obviously, is unacceptable.
Baby/Kid's Earflap Hat in Bernat Softee Baby yarn, Baby Pink Marl colorway
Lack of suitable models is not an uncommon problem. I made do with the lava lamp.
Quite a bit pointier than an infant's head, but it'll do in a pinch. Better than buying a doll.*
Take that, cold winter! I shall defeat you with my garter stitch flaps!
Knitting kind of makes me feel like a superhero. It's the best kind of superpower: I don't have to confront anyone. When I win the battle, there's something soft and pretty as a result. I get to watch the telly while saving the world. It's a good gig.
