I think it is fair to say that I am getting more confident in my knitting skills. The beanie is completed and I didn't drop a single stitch!!! Not only that, but I did complicated things like knitting rib and knitting together. I hope that it fits bubs! If it does, its going to look really cute on.
I've still got lots of wool left, so if I can find a pattern that I can understand and that doesn't look TOO difficult I may just have to knit some matching booties as well!
