I had my little granddaughter over and she picked out some yarn from my basket to make her doll a blanket. Well, she has a shorter attention span than that and so when I got half the blanket done, she wanted to be done with our project. So voila! a hat was born! It actually turned out cute and she was very happy which was the point of this afternoon's knitting anyway!
Thanks! She is just such a sweet little girl and I love to spend time with her. I just started knitting in November and have made 12 scarves, 3 hats, 1 booga bag and this little hat, numerous samples and I'm addicted now. The next thing I'm trying is Iris Schier's (sp?) Modular Knitting. I love the challenge of trying new things and this looks very interesting and challenging. I want to try socks in the near future as I have a 20 year old daughter who hates wearing socks with seams in the toes - I think she might love a pair of soft hand knit socks.
What a cute little girl!! Her hat looks great. Those are the times that memories are made from- she will be able to look back one day and say that she remembers spending time with her grandma and having grandma knit for her. Priceless!!
