I took this link from Jan as inspiration.
My god daughter goes just about nuts over Hello Kitty. That version of this cap knit up sooooo quickly! GREAT.
Now I am struggling with good embroidery for the face. But I am finally done with the nose (crochet on) and one eye (some kind of a weavy stitching that I came up with.... well, it works) Tonight sees the second eye and the whiskers.
I am really happy how quickly this went (2 hours? I don't even think so!)
I did the seemless cast on I saw lately, knit with 5 needles which made it more smooth and saved me markers, finished the bottom edge with I-cord-cast of and made I-cord straps.
I did not use much more than half a 50-g- coil of merino wool with needles No. 4. So it is not the right project to use up so much wool!
