A Forgotten FO



I was digging through my accessories drawer, looking for a belt, when I ran across this hat I made, and I realized that I never shared it here! Last spring I had a funny spot on my scalp that had to be removed, and I went to my old dermatologist near my parents to get it done. The spot turned out to be nothing to worry about, but I had stitches that had to be kept covered for two weeks. A giant bandage on the side of my head isn’t my favorite look ever, and I suddenly regretted not bringing a hat or something to hide it under for when I’d have to go to the airport to head back to Seattle. Well, I did what any knitter would do! I raided my mom’s yarn stash and whipped myself up a quick broken rib beanie. I’m not usually a beanie person, but sometimes they’re exactly what I need, and they’re always fun to knit.

  2. what a good solution. Knitting fixes everything.

  3. Being a knitter is an awesome thing, especially a fast one in your case, when you need something, you can just make it! Great looking hat!
