Gift Knitting

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?
