I finished that beanie, as you can see. It was too large even for Dr B’s big head! However, I was able to gift it to a friend – whose head is even bigger and whose need for comfort was perhaps greater – so no harm done.
YoungB has a small head. I know that. I keep forgetting that I could knit a women’s size for him and it would fit. That’s more or less what I’m doing now, using a different shade of grey yarn. And I might knit something for Dr B if I get around to it. He’s not short of beanies, he just keeps losing them 🙂
I hope your knitting projects are meeting with more success than mine presently seem to be 🙂
