I just finished two more for Ava Claire. Here she is to model them. The first one is a bunny hat - made of beautiful angora and mohair yarn. Tara was going to knit it for her but she got to busy in her master's program so she asked me to make it. And I did - it was really easy and fun to work with such soft yarn.
I also have had the yarn to make this sweet little upside down daisy hat from Itty Bitty Hats. I tell you, that book has the sweetest patterns in it. And it took me two evening to make this hat. Just two evenings while my husband watched tv.
When you have a bald, little head like Miss Ava does, you really appreciate having these warm little hats. I used a cotton yarn for this hat and it stretches really nice. I think she will be able to wear it well into the spring.
Clearly these children are going to have more hats than they will ever wear or I need more grandchildren to knit hats for.
Do you hear me kids?
p.s. Don't forget to vote here for my Big Project 2009. Right now it looks like the Western Wallhanging Quilt is ahead. You have until Friday to vote.
