one order done!

finally finished some hats that i was working on for a friend to give for christmas!

the owl pattern is from here, and the monkey pattern is sort of as well.  the original hat was only ears, but derek suggested the tuft of hair on top of the head, and the monkey really needed to have a face.  it took a bit of experimentation to get the face right, but i’m glad that i invested that time.  the minnie mouse hat base is the same as the others, but the ears were also an experiment.  i made two of these minnie mouse hats, but the first one was acrylic yarn and i’m too much of a yarn snob to let that go, so i picked up some quality fibre and made it again.    i really hope that the kids who open these gifts on christmas morning love their new hats!

my life in pics

finally turned our dining room wall into a gigantic whiteboard, and we're so happy with it! (tip: two coats, let it cure for a week. we did neither of those and i regret! but i love the wall so much anyway).
