OK, so yesterday as I was browsing Ravelry, I found the perfect solution for my daughter's recent "I wont wear a hat" stance on cold mornings. (Yes, I know, it brings a tear to a knitting mama's eye...) But, low and behold : the Calorimetry! What is that, you ask? I thought at first when I saw the title that it was some sort of post holiday kitchen torture device for portion control or something (laugh it up, I know...) but when I saw it appearing in so many of my Ravelry friend's project lists, I knew something was up. Then, yesterday, Nicole posted the finished product modeled on her sweet girl and I just ran as fast as I could to start this up for my E. She knit hers with modifications for a 3-4 year old size head, so I made my own modifications based upon these for my 7 year olds head (notes in my Ravelry). The result: a perfect fit with room to grow! And Yes, It only took 2 hours (I know, I didn't believe it myself!)
So in a day, we went from this...
Or if you prefer, this... (ELIJAH"S FIRST PHOTO!!!)
Shown here buttoned...
And she actually likes it and wants to wear it!!
