This past weekend, we decided that Hobbit needed a fun day. After all the mess of the past few weeks, she just needed a place to recapture her joy and get ready for the adventure ahead. So we took her to Epcot. It was a wonderful day spent wandering around the park and enjoying one another. It's rare that we have such a luxury of family time on the weekend so it felt great reconnecting.
We loved it so much, we even scheduled another adventure for this coming weekend - we're going to the Spirit of Aloha Luau for supper! It's something we've always wanted to do and figured that it would be a nice bookend to her first week at her new school.
While we were wandering around the park, I managed to get a large portion of her hat completed. I started with this...
|I hadn't gotten much further than the ribbing when we went to the park - maybe an inch or so more than this photo shows.|
|I have to say, it was one of the tastiest Chinese dining experiences I have ever encountered. I had Shrimp and Steak - so good!|
|I ended our day with a total of 6" of completed work! I only needed 8.25" before I had to bind off - very productive day.|
It looks like a plain old square...
But when she puts it on, it will do this...
|Please, for the love of Mickey, ignore my medicine flushed and puffy face. One day, I will be healthy again, I swear.|
I think that qualifies under the whole "Mama, will you make a hat with ears" label, don't you? My next adventure in travel hat knitting is going to be Nell by Lisa Gutierrez. Just enough lace to keep it interesting. Not sure I will be able to work on it around the parks but who knows. It looks to be a simple enough repeat. If not, I can always cast on something else. You never know, I just might try socks in the parks! I doubt it but never say never, right.
I hope everyone had a beautiful weekend and is enjoying a magnificent Monday.
