A few months ago I taught my next-door neighbor to knit. She's been plugging away at a few projects here and there, and just recently her youngest daughter -- my DD's closest friend -- started pestering her about learning to knit a hat.
Well, I had this (kinda nasty)
TLC Wiggle yarn lying around in two complementary colors. So, we knit two complementary hats for our DDs. My DD's is purple w/ pink accents, and her friend's is pink w/ purple accents. It was FUN (even if the yarn is scratchy acrylic)
So ... here are pics of my DD's ... I haven't seen the friend's finished one yet, but I'm sure it's equally as cute. ;-)
And here's a better look @ the corkscrews I put on top:
And only *after* I took the picture did I notice how messy the family room was.
