I forced more handknits (but by no means the full arsenal) on this little guy than I ever have on any other baby -- and, if I may say so, they're quite eye-catching -- but OMG, those CHEEKS!!!
The colorful hat was knit a way long time ago with leftovers from Hero Quimby's Sweater & Hat -- I loved working with that Handmaiden Casbah yarn, making it work with some Baby Ull, and such a fun colorway!
The chartreuse-y pear-colored hat was knit a while back from a hank of unyielding silk that I nabbed out of a sale bin at Nina's Department Store in Spring Green the summer-before-last -- I loved the weight and the color! I believe I used Stephanie's pattern for An Unoriginal Hat. It's pretty much a one-size hat with little to no stretch or spring -- not for everyone, but a good fit here!
It's been a strange, strange week. Tomorrow is supposed to be my day off, but that might get pushed. I would like to petition for the stars to align, please; according to this site, "There must be something else bumming you out..." because Mercury isn't in retrograde for another 15+ hours. Actually, it could be that... or something in the air, the water, who knows?!! Things have just been weird and I don't like it.
Doing my best to Keep On Keepin' On -- with a smile -- haven't quite made it to the Ho Ho Ho mark yet. Workin' on it. Anyways...
