Several weeks ago, my friend Moni (of Blatherskite) posted this challenge on her facebook page.
It sounded like lots of fun, so I responded and re-posted on my own fb page... and now have my own list of people to craft for. =) I've been thinking about what to make, but had been working on my own and Reilly's sweaters. Then, my friend Denae (of DenKnits), shared a link for Knits for Needs looking for hats to be donated (and having a contest if you're interested). I shared the link on my page, commenting that there were so many cute hat patterns but so few people around me who wear hats. I nearly instantly had comments from two of the people to whom I now owe hand-crafted items. Well, that makes it easy! lol
#1 of 5... done. =)
I love it. This is for my sister (who I made the braided cowl for at Christmas). I didn't have any more of that yarn so used another brown (that I hope is close since I'm not sure where the tiny remnants of that other ball are) and paired it with a pretty semi-solid blue from my stash. This is my favorite color combo... I hope she likes it. =) I already plan to make myself one of those cowls... might just have to make myself a similar hat as well. heh
Pattern info: Turn a Square by Jared Flood (of Brooklyn Tweed) - I lengthened the rib so it would fold up (a request of the recipient) and added a big, fluffy, fun pom pom.
Now, back to my sweater for a bit while I figure out #2...
