I enjoyed reading your guesses as to Lucy’s weight — they really ran the gamut from tiny to huge! Of course, it’s impossible for you all to accurately guess her weight based on photos, so this was very much a game of chance.
Lucy is a tiny girl underneath all that floof. She weighs only 7.7 pounds. And only one of you guessed her exact weight: Leslie.
In knitting news, I completed my worsted weight Starving Artist Hat. (Free pattern in Ravelry!)
To recap, I knit this from a worsted weight handspun created and given to me by The KnitGirllls. I used a U.S. size 6 (4mm) needle and got a gauge of 5 st/inch in the k1 tbl, p2 pattern. I cast on 90 stitches and followed the instructions for the increases, which gave me 150 stitches. I worked as directed through Row 11 of the decreases for the crown (and had 30 stitches remaining), then I worked as follows:
Row 12: k2tog tbl around (15 stitches)
Row 13: k2tog tbl 7 times, k1 tbl (8 stitches)
Row 14: k2tog tbl 4 (4 stitches)
I then worked an i-cord on those 4 stitches for 5 rows and bound off.
And I love the results. 😀
