the top, too! it's a pattern called kid's fruit cap from ann norling, and it was VERY quick and easy. the yarn is a beautiful worsted weight wool/alpaca/mohair blend called julia (from goddess yarns--my favorite baby hat yarn! given that we know 5 people having babies this year, you can bet i will be making a few more of these! i chose the pattern because a) it's cute, b) i wanted to make something quick to get back into the rhythm of things, c) i am SICK TO DEATH of making scarves, d) i wanted to force myself to use double pointed needles, and e) i wanted to try something with two colors. this cutie filled all these needs. now i am all fired up to get going on about 50 other projects! maybe tonight i will wind the yarn for my clapotis. or maybe i will start a baby sweater to match this little hat. the possibilities are endless! yay for knitting again!!!
ps--the DPNs? they weren't so bad. tell me again why i have been dreading using them so much???
pps--the two color thing? it's easy peasy. however, this is also NOT intarsia--talk to me again when i get around to trying THAT!
