Anyway, like it or not, here's what I've been working on:
Let's start with this one. A terrible picture, but a hat that actually fits a big person, instead of a little one! And cables to boot. The designer calls it Unoriginal, but I've never knit anything quite like it. It's super cute (and if anyone has a birthday coming up....)
And then I moved back into the little person realm with this piggie bonnet. Wish I had a newborn to try it on. I made the pattern up myself, including the pigs ears, which I spent far too long on.
Then I made two of these, trying to make them the right size for a four year old. This one's called the Divine Hat, and it is just about that.
Oh, and then I made this one. It turned out way smaller than I planned, but it's pretty cute regardless. I added three dangling pom-poms to the top, and it's even better now.
Then there was this one, which I think necessitates a big brown and pink flower.
And I just finished this. I'm not terribly fond of the colours, but it was a quick, easy knit, so I might just do it again smaller, with different yarn. As is expected, my favourite are the braids. I like earflaps and braids. Here's a link to the pattern.
And then, my absolute favourite so far. I knit this one out of a ball of cheap variegated acrylic yarn that did not look good crocheted. It turned out so ridiculously darling that I may have to go out and buy some more yarn and made a whole slough of them! The pattern, Capucine, is really easy to follow, even for a beginner knitter, and I knit it up in one evening. You can't beat that! In the tassels I added some of the extra dark purple from the Divine hat, and I think it makes it all the more wonderful. Maybe not the most practical of baby hats, but I love it none the less.
So there you have it. I'll admit, I'm a total grandma, but I love it! And like I said, any birthdays coming up...
