So I finished the hat I was working on last week, and, as I thought I might, found that it was too big for a newborn. In fact, I found it was wide enough (although not long enough) for my one-year-old with a giant head.
So I crocheted a border on it to make it a little longer. I think it came out nicely, don't you? It will be a Christmas present for an older baby.
And then I knitted a smaller hat for the originally intended recipient.
I've been reading a book from the library to find out what Montessori education is all about. I'm finding that I agree with a lot of principles, but not with certain features of the application. I have a lot more reading to do to get a complete picture, though.
