just around the corner

Halloween is just around the corner, but I knitted this for Josh right when he was born:

I really hate it. It looks cute on him, but come on, that kid could wear a zombie costume and still be the cutest brain eater in the world. I hate the hat because I did it on straight needles, not circular ones, I tried a new decrease method which looks like shit and the stem is lame. I’m going to do a new hat, hopefully in time for Halloween. And with a curlicue dealy like this from Crazy Aunt Purl in addition to a more stemmy looking stem:

Wish me luck. I’m still working on this and I’m only half way done with it. It’s coming out really great though. Christmas is right around the corner, too, and I don’t think I’m going to get anything done (giftwise) that I wanted to. Bah!
