We picked out colors for Tot Toppers Favorite Cap & Blanket Set in Plymouth Worsted Merino Superwash (Worsted: 100% Merino, 218 yards).
Calann started the same hat and thought it looked too big (for the same size) based on Eleanor’s hat. She decided to rip it out and begin again. Bummer.
Her Elephants on Parade blanket was back from the finisher. Someone in the class wondered if over time, the embossed elephants would flatten. Calann doesn’t care, just as long as it looks good on presentation. Yarn: Plymouth Worsted Merino Superwash (Worsted: 100% Merino Superwash, 218 yards).
Calann finished the first two squares of her Building Blocks Afghan. She started the bobble square. Initially she liked bobbles. However, after the first set of bobbles, she was missing a stitch. I taught her how to take out a bobble row by inserting the needle into the stitch it stemmed from (protecting it) and then pull out the bobble.
Personally, I don’t like bobbles. Jane kind of jinxed Calann because she doesn’t like bobbles either. Calann had some serious struggles with this square. She kept going into an extra stitch by accident which threw off her stitch count.
In the end, I put markers around the intended bobble stitch to stop her from going into a second stitch. It worked and Calann announced, “I just might make it through this. I’m much happier than I was.” If Calann isn’t happy, no one is happy.
