This weekend I quickly whipped up a Miss Dashwood. Yep, pretty cute, I thought. Up until I realized that it barely fit Paco-- even with his wears folded back. If you couldn't tell, he's not a fan of this look. Can you see the "I'm cute enough as it is!" look in his eyes?
I realized that I mis-read (re: didn't read) the pattern and skipped over the rows of stockinette post-bobble action. I skipped on and started decreasing. Finally, a hat appeared that is much too large for Paco, and may actually fit a wee babe's head one day. Tonight I'll knit up the earflaps and ties. Perhaps a good blocking session would help as well.
Yarn from stash: Malabrigo, Amorosa (?) colorway.
