A few days ago, I followed a promising link to a pattern for a similar cap. I have started the newsboy cap three (or is it 4?) times since yesterday, using some Tivoli Celtic Aran yarn that I bought it Ireland a couple of years ago. It's become a challege I will overcome.
First time out, I underestimated the stitch gauge (4 stitches to the inch, not 5), then there was the issue with getting the hem applied correctly. Then I decided that the hem wasn't deep enough. Thank the lord that wool yarn is forgiving!
There are no pictures for obvious reasons. The yarn is lying in a puddle. I will cast on again tonight.
Yesterday we (okay, the other half) ran the vacuum cleaner. In the process, he rounded up a bunch of the usual suspects:
Looks like a Mouse-acre!
Think she has too many toys? You don't know the half of it!
What's scary is waking up to find them in a neat little column advancing on the bed. We live in a very Stephen King-esque house!
