My Little Frog

To a knitter, the term "frogging" usually accompanies gnashing of teeth and hair pulling. ("Frogging" means pulling out hours of work and having to re-do it). However, this kind of frogging I can handle.

I can handle the frogs.*Sigh* What is it about that Jack Nicholson quote that is so addicting? I blame it all on Pioneer Woman.

Anyway, onward.
Here in the Frigid North, head-wear is a necessity for one's health and to maintain the proper level of brain function. Is that sentence grammatically correct? Hmmm, perhaps it's because I don't wear hats when I go out.

Brain function, I've been told, is important.

That's why I knitted this hat for Baby Gabe; because I want him to have lots of brain function. I wasn't at all tempted to knit this simply because I think it's cute and it makes me smile every time I see it.Nope. Here at Yarn Over, we are all about selflessness and sacrifice.

That's why when my son Gabe is 16, he's going to be so glad that I stuffed him into this hat and took pictures.

The hat is so gorgeous. Wish I had your skill, maybe just a little patience thrown in. My daughter and I were just talking today about how hard it was to find a hat for her 5 month old when all we have is Walmart and Dollar General. You can't order anything and be sure that is will fit.
