Rainbow hat!

I finished knitting my friend’s rainbow hat!!

But I still have these to deal with:

It’s not as bad as it seems. Luckily, I never allowed myself to develop a dislike for weaving in ends.

The squishy lovely garter stitch cowl? It’s done, the ends are grafted together, but it really flattened out between washing and blocking. I’m really sad about it! When it’s in the water, it puffs up and looks lovely, but drying on the blocking squares, it looks sad and stretched. What to do??

Baby hats

Today was very much one of those in which I imagine I’ll get so many crafty things done, and I even broke ground on the Wee Boy’s quilt during a tiny bit of spare time. Then all of a sudden it was 9:30pm when I emerged from the kids ‘ room, having gotten them to sleep at last (and having caught a few zzzzs myself). So a few rows of knitting is all for today.

If this looks a bit familiar, well done! Last week I made a rainbow baby hat among the trio of Magic Coffee Baby Hats that I knitted for some friends who are expecting a baby in May.

Well, my soon-to-be-mom friend was in town the other day, and we got to hang out for a while and do fun, touristy things.

I delivered the hats to my friend and she loved the rainbow one so much she asked for one for herself, which of course, is the best kind of flattery for a knitter! ┬áI was just about out of the dark gray, but luckily I had some light gray Cascade 220 superwash in the stash to come to the rescue. ┬áI think it’ll be cute. ┬áRainbows are always cute.

But I now have to come up with something to knit for the other mom, pictured above with the tiniest hat. I have a good idea in mind for her… ┬áSomething squishy and comfy and bright….
