I was speaking with Emma about how I was feeling under pressure to write a post, while at the same time distracted by a crazy amount of work. And she said “You need to use ‘Teeny, tiny hat’ as a Lockdown Flashback!” Maybe that is because the post starts with this diagramme:
Ha ha! It turns out that not only am I relating right now to that, but I am also really feeling the “head thunk” part of the post. Thank you, Emma, I’ll play along: This Lockdown Flashback takes us back to Teeny, tiny hat, written in February of 2016. The post shows what happens when you don’t pay attention to what you’re doing. In this case: a VERY small hat.
In case you are wondering, I re-knitted the hat and it came out beautifully. You can see it here.
Keep well everyone!
Thanks so much for drawing our attention to this very clever pattern, now in my favourites. Great suggestion from Emma.
It’s a really nice hat. Even Emma will wear it, and she hates hats.
So funny! Reminds me of my first baby hat, that ended up looking more like an egg cozy than a hat.
One general comment I have for you: I know you meant well by doing a series entitled ‘Lockdown’ but honestly, every time I see one of your posts, it reminds me of the surreal situation we have to endure every single day for an indefinite period of time (even when the lockdown is officially over, there will be so many arbitrary rules to follow that it won’t feel like it’s truly over before a long time); Seeing the word makes me cringe each time, and that’s not really what I want when I go through my blog feed. I’m sure that was not the aim. Maybe I’m the only one who feels that way, but I wanted to let you know.
Hi Agnes! Oh, dear! This was certainly not my intention! I’m really sad that these titles are triggering you. I will have to think about this. I have the next few already written and scheduled in advance for posting. I am overwhelmed this week and no time to write/edit; so just to warn you in advance. I send you all of my best wishes; I know that things have not been easy in France. Please take care!
