I spend so much time working on long-term projects. It's easy to wind up feeling discouraged by how long they take and how many wind up falling by the wayside.

For a while, I was knitting baby hats for friends with newborn babies. But after a certain point, my energy for knitting the baby hats just completely fizzled out. On the other hand, I still wanted to give [personal profile] annikusrex's kiddo a special hat. So I decided to compromise: I'd make a hat for Felix. Eventually.

So as it turns out, it may take a few years before he'll grow into this one:

Felix hat - front

Felix hat - back

It was fun and interesting to design this. The font is Monotype Corsiva.

It's not quite adult-sized:

I also crocheted up a plant hanger while I was on the train. Overall, I'm ambivalent about it, but I might make another one anyway. You know, so we can get that whole three-level effect with a little path running down the middle.

Wowee zowee! That is a fancy hat. I doubt Felix will ever own a fancier piece of headgear. It will be so cute!
