Last week while shopping, I realized how close Christmas is for a person that loves to hand make gifts. This year the kiddos will be getting new hats as one of their gifts. I saw this Amazing yarn and knew that it would be the perfect yarn for the little girls. It's a wool/acrylic blend, a little fuzzy and very soft and warm. After spending too much time on Ravelry, I found the perfect patterns for each of the kiddos.
This pattern is called Rainbow Hat and can be found here. The instructions say size 5 needles and to cast on 112 with fingering yarn. This is worsted weight so I cast on 80 stitches. It's a perfect fit.
These were my wool toe up socks but with each stitch, I liked them less and less so I took them apart. I think I am going to skip toe up, keep doing what I love to do--cuff down and call this my lesson for July. I will cast on the gray socks as soon as this hat is finished since those are the needles I need for these socks.
And just for the fun of it, this is Miss Blue. She is a very naughty girl! She decided she liked this flower pot for her afternoon nap. See how bright white her ears are? This means I get a pretty white egg from her. She is such a good layer that I don't want to upset her so I leave her alone.
