Sometime back in November, a friend of mine asked me to make her son a Viking Hat for christmas. As I'd already made three of them before without any mishaps, I figured I needed only a few days to make it. So left it until last minute!! Not sure where I went wrong - four times - but I just couldn't get this to work. When it did resemble a hat it was big enough for her tall strapping Danish husband but her wee three year old son could have used it as a boat! Then to add insult to injury the horns came out different sizes! Guess I just got a bit complacent.
Needless to say it didn't get finished until last weekend.
Winter here has been very mild and we have had only two very insignificant snow falls since December, so he didn't really need it until now, says she, trying to ease her guilty conscience.

Started reading Lord of The Rings but then a friend mentioned that I should have read The Hobbit first. Another friend, writer and english teacher, said not necessarily....so I'm having a pause to think about it. Any advice? In the mean while I'm re-reading The Shipping News.
Counting my blessings this afternoon - a hour ago a guy drove his 4 x 4 with big metal hitch thing, into my car. Made rather a mess of the front, but thankfully I was stationary, he was going slowly and both Rémi and I had seat belts on!! Said he didn't see us! I've got a fairly big, well high, 4 x 4 myself, just glad that it was my car he 'didn't see' and not some small child!!
Looking forward to reading some Yarn Along posts and unwinding a little this afternoon.
