To be honest, I was worried about the tight fit of my Breaking Waves hat, and thought I might have to give it to the Wee Girl. However, after a wash and blocking it over a bowl, it fits great!
Finally I can show you the super secret project I’ve mentioned once or twice! My knitting group organizes birthday swaps, kind of like Secret Santas. This year we’re knitting mittens/fingerless mitts/etc. for the person assigned to us.
Last night was my turn to present a fellow knitter with the project I made for her! I knitted the Gnome Mittens, a paid pattern by Spilly Jane. My recipient LOVES pink, so I changed the palette from black, blue, and red to gray, pink, and pink!
I decided to present the mittens in a custom-sewn project bag featuring Chococat, and make a set of stitch markers as well.
She was very pleased! 🙂 🙂 🙂 it’s not easy for me to keep secrets, so I’m glad this one is out! Also, I was really looking forward to seeing her reaction to my efforts, and I was happy in the end.
