Lest you should worry I haven't done anything- I still have had a couple of productive days here. The Sheep hat is finished- and oh man is it cute!
Yarn: Leftover Berrocco Vintage from Parker's Blanket
Needle: US 7
Thoughts: There is no way this could be cuter. There's a little part of me that wants to make a matching sweater in the trinity stitch.... but for now I just keep coming back to look at this and "squee" over the cute. Contrary to my concerns this is the right sizing for a 6+ month old head. I would LOVE to show you an adorable model wearing this, but he would not wear this for even 5 seconds for me to take a picture. (Someone hates hats... it's depressing to have a kid who could be covered in cute knit hats but hates them.)
I also had one of those weird "must knit this out of the stash NOW" moments with some yarn I've had in the stash forever. And so I was inspired to make a cute little newborn outfit with it. The yarn colors makes me think of cupcakes- so I've been calling this the cupcake set. The hat pattern is the Easy Peasy hat pattern, the booties are the famous Saartje's Booties and the All Buttoned Up sweater is a great little pattern found on Ravelry.
Lastly, I need to tell you how I did at the Stampede this year.
In the meantime, I have this cute little cowboy to comfort me- this picture never fails to make me smile.
*next blog we discuss the "Ravellenic Games" I promise.
