Recent Travails of a Knitter without a Pattern

Made to order ~ Lambkin Chapeau:

Haven’t fallen off the edge of the earth but I have had my hands full. I’ve been up to my eyeballs in yarn. Was given a challenge recently by a Woman who called me because Her family (husband and children) are going to a photo session with a photographer in 3 days time. It seemed urgent so I gave it top priory.  She wanted a hat for her baby and sent me a JPEG which depicted the hat. Hmm – no pattern came with the request. Dilemma becomes challenge. Would my unraveling become  my undoing? Eventually I came up with my own interpretation. Necessity is the mother-load  of invention. And one cannot rush the creative process. I will soon discover if it is what’s wanted. The long-and-short is, the photo shoot was postponed until next week. A little disappointing as I threw myself at this project.  But such is the nature of commissioned creations. Meanwhile the hat sits at the ready. Wish me success!



Lambkin approves: “Love the Ears on that Chapeau!”
