Another finished hat . . .
pattern:Ã‚Â Ã‚Â Avalanche Hat PatternÃ‚Â (pdf)
yarn:Ã‚Â Ã‚Â Lamb’s Pride BulkyÃ‚Â (85%Ã‚Â Wool 15% Mohair) from stash
cast on/off:Ã‚Â Jan 11th
notes:Ã‚Â Ã‚Â I knit the pattern as written, but with the thinner yarn and smaller gauge the resulting hat is more of an infant size.
I think I’m done with hats for a while.Ã‚Â I started the Tomten a while ago and need to get it finished, just needs the buttonband.
Friday I took Bubba to McD’s so he could play, we’ve had so many snow days that he’s started getting cabin fever.Ã‚Â While he playedÃ‚Â I cast on for a pair of mitten for Bug.Ã‚Â She has been asking for a pair with cuffs that go upto the elbows, “so that the snow doesn’t get in.”Ã‚Â Luckily she’s only 7 and this means she has short arms.Ã‚Â The first mitten only has the thumb to be finished, nothing fancy, just basic mittens with long cuffs.Ã‚Â
