I’m sure it’s a common sentiment among knitters: you see a piece of knitwear, look at and think: “I could make that.” I usually then get a grip on myself; remember the realities of my time, skill, and patience; and continue on my way. However, my restraint fell by the wayside when I saw a watermelon hat on one of my niece’s dolls. It was one they had worn when they were babies. I proceeded to “borrow”** it to use as a reference.
** By “borrow” I mean I took when she wasn’t looking.
