my love is strong enough.

christian needed a hat. one of my biggest regrets, maybe a silly one, is that i never knit andrew a hat when he was a baby. i had aspirations to do so and my knitting skills weren't as good as they are now, and i never got it done. truthfully, i was working full time up until the day before he was born, so i did not have a lot of time.

however, i was determined to change that for christian.

i really loved knitting this double-stranded - it made for a thicker, firmer hat with the wool. one of my biggest pet peeves about ear flap hats is that the ear flaps don't stay down, and they curl. because the ear flaps are done in garter stitch, they stay nice and flat. just ignore the knitting jargon and act like you know what i'm talking about.
