garter stitch cardigan i just finished came out, i can't say that the mission falls cotton was my favorite yarn to work with. but i digress... as of last night, i am making a little pumpkin hat for my friend alyce's toddler, adam--hopefully this will fit him in the fall. (it's the same pattern as the eggplant hat i made a while ago.) the cool thing is that this gift is NOT a surprise--i promised alyce i would hook her baby up with something for the fall. and since it appears that i will finish this little hat tonight, it looks like hooking her up will be no problem at all. if all goes well--i will have time to whip up a sweater to go with this before i head up to boston at the end of the month. :)
oh, i had an epiphany this morning, too. the sam left a comment in my last post suggesting i add a little felted airplane to the plain little cotton hat , which is a great idea except for two things: 1) the hat's cotton, and i have mixed feelings about adding a wool something to it, and 2) an airplane seems too boyish since i am planning to give this to a little bitty girl ASAP. BUT, it got me thinking about other possible embellishments, and i remembered that i have a pattern for a little knitted flower i got from my LYS to go on just such a hat! yay! guess what else i will be knitting tonight?
in other news, i am having a remarkably good hair day.
