There is evidence of my big kid growing up all the time but this one hit me where it hurts! He needed a new hat and I said I would knit him one. He has always worn adorable (if I do say so myself) hats - dinosaur heads, long stocking hats with even longer tassels on the ear flaps, etc. This time we went through Ravelry and he picked a straight-up ribbed beanie with one little conservative stripe.
No animal heads or crazy designs. He said he's "getting older" and wants something "more plain". Second grade. Is this when it starts? *sniff, sniff*
On a completely different note, I'm working on another baby quilt for a new mama. Her nursery is gray and green - a combo I have worked with before. Here's what I have so far:
I think this is going to be 12 blocks with no sashing but I'm not sure yet. Maybe a border?
