Suddenly I'm in a flurry of knitting. Loads of baby booties, a beret for myself and a sweet accessory that I'm eager to see finished. But my most recent knitting success....the pinnacle of my knitting career so far...is the hat.
Z-cakes chose all of the yarn for this hat. Though I may or may not have talked her in to including a few that weren't just PINK. There's no question that this girl knows what she wants and I can't say I disagree with her taste. The colors of this hat are so beautiful and vibrant that it kind of makes me want to eat it.
I'm planning to put a gigantic pom-pom on the top of it and wasn't going to show it to you until I did. But when I saw these pictures that GrandpaB took, I couldn't resist. As you can see, the hat fits her perfectly right now. It may even be a little snug. So that kind of blows my idea of the hat being for next Winter. Oh well. Guess I'll just have to make another.
This was my first attempt at fair isle knitting and I must say I'm completely taken by it. The tension is quite tricky but I know I'll get better at it with time. Good thing I'll be making another hat!
