Another Dulaan Hat Finished

I always need to have a brain-less project to take with me to SnB - I just can't read a pattern and be sociable at the same time. I have read some people's blogs where wine is involved in their SnBs... and I know I definitely wouldn't be able to drink, knit conscientiously, and be sociable all at the same time. So, I cast on for this Dulaan hat last week:



The yarn is Paton's something in 'High Intensity' - odd that I should remember the name of the colour but not of the yarn. Here's a top view:

Why this word? I was looking up for a synonym for 'frustrated.' My child's eating habits drive me bonkers. Don't get me wrong - she loves to eat... but takes absolutely forever to do it! We only have so much time when we get home. Most days I am lucky if we get home around 5pm, and she is usually in bed by 7:30 - 8pm. I hate the fact that I get angry and am trying to rush her along so she can finish her dinner, have a bath, do homework, get a story, and then get to bed all before 8pm.

That's a cute Dulaan hat you knitted! Thanks for visiting my blog - I was sweating bullets as I finished the last rows!

Speaking of a cute hat, that one's adorable and so is your model ;) Such a pretty smile she has. Yep, they make flavored cat/dog toothpaste... we have "grass" flavor and "chicken" flavor which seem to smell like they're namesakes, but I'm not willing to taste it!
