Scraps - Elizabeth Unexplained
Lots of data but no answers
Margaret had a last minute request for more hats after an unfortunate incident involving John leaving the baby undiapered and the baby managing to get pee on his head. I didn't have any yarn set aside specifically for hats, but there were leftovers... This is the result. The leftovers were from the multi-colored afgan I made the baby, and I'm actually pretty pleased with the hat, considering the algorithm for making the hat was to just use the balls of scraps until I ran out of each color.

Hee! That's a lovely capsule summary of an Unfortunate Incident. But I have to think, if one replaces of all items of clothing that get baby bodily fluids on them... well, maybe that's what leads to TV shows where nobody ever wears the same thing more than once. :)

It sounded more to me like Margaret wants parts of the body that may receive bodily fluids to be covered, so that the hat can be taken off and washed without having to bathe the baby.

The hat is quite cute! But isn't he going to blend into the afghan now? They need to be careful not to let anyone sit on the baby... ;)

In fact the hat was for protection rather than replacement.

Nice. Yeah, that came out pretty well considering the yarn selection algorithm. In fact it's still a good color choice. :-)

I'm trying to figure out how the baby managed that, and failing spectacularly.

You know, up here we have something called "Le Cirque Du Soleil" that hires contortionists. Something to keep in mind for the little guy's future. :-)

You've never changed a diaper on a little boy, have you? It's always wise to have a second diaper to put on top of the penis as soon as you open up the dirty one - they can get quite a fountain action going. I'm not sure I know any parent of a boy who hasn't gotten squirted in the face at least once.
