Playing Catch-up (Again)

I feel like I’ve been finishing things up like crazy lately but not posting much about them. You all think I’m more creative than I really am. It is, alas, just a hat. But a cute hat:

Pattern: Sweet Baby Cap
I also made mittens using Ann Budd’s book of patterns.

Yarn: Mountain Colors Twizzle in Sweet Pea.

Needles: Size three, although the yarn calls for 4-6. I wanted it tight for winter wear. I also didn’t get gauge, so I think I knit the 6mo pattern to get it to fit a toddler. I’ll have to go back and measure. I did have to stretch it a bit as well. I’d knit it larger next time, but it works.

I cannot say enough good things about this yarn… soft, beautiful colors that just shine. I can’t believe I’m giving it to a toddler who will (1) get them muddy (2) lose them (3) refuse to wear them.

Here’s the practical picture so you can actually see in it focus:

Excuse the lame towel in the background. I was in a hurry and it’s all I could find to get it to stand out from the woodwork. I do have more to post about buy Mystery is starting. How I do love Inspector Linley
