Tiny Tuesday with epic fail

Vicki wearing Beard Hat attempt one
epic fail!

Let's start out with what I would call epic fail. The above beard hat is the first knitting project in a while. I had tons of problems reading the pattern, made stitches wrong and it turned out more Assyrian style beard versus pirate styled. I am making another one for my son and it is going much better so far.

The block is an epic fail. I had reversed the darks and lights in one of the "feet". I fixed it but after much work and much frustration, it isn't remotely square and it is a bit small. I am not working on it any more. It may or may not make the audition for the quilt. :)

This block however, went together very well. It is called Ducks and ducklings in the Farmer's Wife book. It is just what I needed! It is square and the right size.

Back to work today after a week of stay cation. Hmmm, should be interesting because we have had a winter storm the past two days so road travel will be slick for some people. Our drive is cleared and ready to go but the kids are off school just the bonus every school kids could dream of an extra day of Christmas vacation. I am so jealous!!

You can read about my New Year's Resolution's in my previous blog post.

I love the 'beard'!! And you can see you had a bit of struggle with the 1st blk but I love the duckling one!!! that is so cute!!!

Snow?? You got snow?? What is that?? I feel like it's been so long since we've had any I might forget what it looks like??

(normall we have snow, that stays and keeps on coming by Halloween!! So this is a little unusual here...)
Hope the kids enjoy the extra day!!
