Lost Hat

A good friend lost her little ones hat while we were out and about. I HATE losing things, I hate the feeling and then not finding it! UGH! So as a way to ease the pain I quick knit her a hat.

 Somewhat reluctant model

The low down,
Pattern: Quynn by Woolly Wormhead
Yarn: Debbie Bliss Alpaca Silk Aran and
a bit of leftover Classic Elite Yarns Liberty Wool from this sweater.

Retro Fabulous?

Or retro hideous?

I say retro because the color combo reminds me of a 70's crochet afghan my grandmother had. I ask because I'm not sure I want to continue of it's leaning towards the hideous side of things. If I carry on it will turn into a little vest with race car buttons for Astas.

Be honest!

Post Holiday Crafty Wrap Up

I was a busy elf this holiday season and made a couple of things for the boys.

If you may remember from my last post Bunny had his own stocking. Bunny also had a wish list, on it was a pair of fairy wing.    


 Hand sewn with sparkly green embroidery thread which is a really pain to work with.

I added floral wire to keep them from being too floppy.

The boys got tiny mice in their stockings. They can be found at stores with sleeping bags but cost about $10 more. I opted to knit my own wee little sleeping bags from yarn I had laying about.

So hard to embroider a letter "A"
