What do you know, we made it through another week! Hopefully, next Friday, I will be reading your posts from the land of kiwi fruit and World Rugby Cup hysteria. (I say hopefully because I actually have a secret fear of flying - I always do it but I'm always scared).
I am happy to say I actually finished one of my lagging WIP's this week. I originally planned to knit this Swirl Hat as a winter hat for my Doodlebug. Somehow, it has turned out too small for her (not that that stopped me from shoving it on her head for the pictures you will see here today ; ) But all is not lost as there was a (another) new baby born to someone at my husband's work this week and I am only to happy to send this hat that wee babe's way.
The Swirl Hat pattern is very simple and easy to read. I loved that the different sizes are marked in different colours. Of course, the k3tog's in the decreasing were a bit of a pain in the butt. Otherwise I enjoyed this great knit.
This was my first time trying Tami's Candy Skein yarn. I love the Raspberry & Cream colourway. The yarn was great to knit and is perfect for babies... soft AND washable!
Pattern: Swirl Hat by Mandie Harrington
Yarn: Candy Skein Yummy Sport Superwash Sock
(I used a 16" circ and then a longer cable to magic loop the decreases)
Ok. Are you ready for cuteness overload? Don't say I didn't warn you...
More cute, cuddly and creative FO's hosted on Tami's blog.
I've decided to start a "Whatever the Mood" Monday's post. It will be a random musing about whatever I feel like (although I suspect there will be a lot of fiber content - I've even started dreaming about knitting now... shame it doesn't actually get my projects done any faster).
