They knit up so quickly and enabled me to practice my continental knit stitch (can't quite master purl this way)
The boys cant stop wearing them
Rémi would probably sleep in his if I'd let him!
I had to make mine slightly smaller than the pattern by only casting on 86 stitches and adjusting the length according to each child's head. For anyone that is new to knitting hat's in the round this pattern is a great place to start. Thinking of giving the Birch Bark Longies a whirl next.
I'm currently reading Peace Pilgrim - Her Life and Work in Her Own Words the incredible story of a lady, who wanting only to be known as Peace, walked from 1953 to 1981 (the year of her death) the length and breadth of North America, with a message to all, that she would walk until "mankind has learned the way of peace". That's quite an objective to set oneself, don't you think. She carried with her only a comb, toothbrush, pen, copies of her message and her current correspondence, eating when she was offered food and resting when she was offered a bed.

Linking up with Ginny for this weeks Yarn Along, what's on your needles and bedside table today?
