Running to stand still

For some reason, Blogger won't let me post pictures today, so instead of what I was going to show you I will tell you how fwuuuuu


ted I am with the daytime chemo cap I'm making for my friend.

First I made it too big,

then I made it too big,

then I tried it in cotton and made it too big

then I thought I'd cut to the chase and skip the second too big I'd already done in wool

and it came out too small

even though I can get it on my head, and I have hair which takes up space, I can tell it's too small because my head hurts after I've taken it off

so I have to make it again in cotton but bigger

after I've finished it in the third time through the wool version

which is really the fourth time through because the Bobcap is built on the same size principle and turned out to be the right one.

Pant, pant, pant. 

And I hate knitting in cotton since I discovered really elastic wools.

With every stitch I feel the hats reminding me how very lucky I am not to be needing one of these myself, and believe me I'm grateful, but...

do you think I'll ever get to work on a cardi or a sock again?
