My husband informed me yesterday that my blog post the other day was really cranky. I’m sorry, I don’t mean to be. I’ve got a ton on my plate right now and am a little stressed about getting it done. Plus, my husband is sick with pneumonia so I’m feeling very overwhelmed at home. I appologize if I offended anyone.
The good news is that I have been cranking out some gifts already. I made some cute little legwarmers for a 6 year old’s birthday party this last weekend. I didn’t take any photos though. Take my word for it, they were cute. The Mom even asked if I made them in adult sizes.
The other thing I got done for a birthday present was the hat you see above. It’s the Boyfriend Hat from Stephanie Likes to Knit.
Yarn: Dye4Me – white with a touch of sparkle. It’s amazingly soft because it’s made with…
yak buffalo angora well it’s made with something super soft that I can’t remember. I carried a strand of Misti Alpaca Suri Alpaca along with it to give it some color. The photo really doesn’t do it justice. This hat is soooo soft I want to snuggle with it.
Modifications: None. I really love this pattern.
Now I’m trying to decide if I could make a pair of Fair Isle Mittens out of the remainder. Perhaps child size for an extremely lucky child?
