I finished Teapot’s hat yesterday & have a picture of the hat for my friend’s baby:
It’s a free pattern from Gros. I used Fortissima Socka for my friend’s hat & Dream in Color Smooshy (colorway Go Go Grassy) for Teapot’s & size US 1.5 & 2 needles. I made the 6 month size for my friend & 2 years for Teapot. (I knit quite tightly & she must knit very loosely. Or Teapot just has a huge head. She probably just has a huge head.)
Here it is on Teapot. It’s even cuter in person. (But isn’t it crazy how well the 2 years old size hits her! I guess I could check the gauge…..)
It was very addictive to knit. I could make another. But all my yarn is at the new house & it’s really cold out.
Ok, well it’s not as cold as some parts of the country (-30 wind chill! Yikes!), but it’s pretty cold for Virginia so we’re going to be lazy & stay home.
And once I’ve finished knitting the dress for Teapot I’ve got started, perhaps I should pack the kitchen. Sheesh I hate packing kitchens. They’re the worst. Worse than studios full of fabric & yarn. Fabric & yarn can just be thrown in boxes & you don’t have to worry about anything breaking. Kitchen stuff is breakable & oddly shaped.
