So, come to find out, my youngest daughter’s kindergarten teacher is a Whovian. If you don’t know what that is, let me explain. A Whovian is a fan of the BBC show Doctor Who, a show that recently turned 50 years old. We are as well! It’s one of those geeky things that we love.
She mentioned to my daughter that she wondered if I would be able to make he son a Dalek hat. I don’t think this was an official request, but I took it as a challenge. Looking through all the patterns listed at Ravelry.com, I found just the right hat: INSULATE!
It’s a knit pattern, and I’m really still just getting my bearing with knitting, even though though I have made some knits off and on. After just a few short hours, I finished. I made a mistake one 1 row. The stitches got shifted over by 1. Ugh! I didn’t notice until several rows later. But all in all, it turned out cute. I will send this to school when she goes back to school, and hope it’s well received.
