So Sweet, It Will Give You Cavities


No Movie Musings Monday post this week. I still haven't watched a single movie since I've returned from Boston.

Completely unrelated to the rest of this post, my previous peeves with Sprint were resolved Saturday. Hubs and I are on a shared plan with nights starting at 6pm. No more curbing late evening commute chatting for me!

Yesterday, I planned, purchased yarn, swatched, and finished a new little project. It's a cute little hat for soon-to-be neice, Maya.

Bandit was quite unwilling to model the hat

Pattern: Children's Cotton Hat from Last Minute Knitted Gifts with an added ruffle
Needles: US 8 24" circulars and DPNs
Yarn: Less than one skein of Berrocco Love It (cotton blend)
Pattern Mods: To add the ruffle, cast on 4 times the amount of stitches as the pattern calls for on circulars. Row 1 & 2: K2Tog and switch to DPNs

With all big projects on the needles (Saffron Cables afghan, socks for Hubs, stockings for me, and North Star scarf), I needed a quick and easy project. Plus, this little girlie hat is so sweet, it will give you cavities.

Christina,
I think Maya will really like the hat it is VERY cute! I hope she doesn't have too big of a head. Hopefully she'll take after me instead of her daddy!
