We are celebrating a special little lady's birthday today.
This is a scheduled post as I have a few Finished Objects to share with you, two of which are overdue. As usual I'm sharing these with FO Friday and Creative Friday.
You may remember a secret project a few weeks ago...?
I can now reveal it's a Pixie hat for Another's baby! (The baby is gorgeous, by the way.)
YARN: Patons FAB DK in rainbow colourway
PATTERN: from a leaflet
Pixie Moon has been getting some new clothes too
(but let's be honest, it wasn't her clothes you were looking at recently!)
I can't tell you which yarn I used and I improvised the design - my first attempt at a one-piece crochet cardigan. It worked out well but the colour isn't great for photos so you'll have to take my word for it!
And finally, while perusing one of my favourite blogs yesterday I spotted a little Autumn Hat which inspired me to get out some cotton and make a Spring Hat for Little Miss. She has very fine hair and hates it blowing in the wind, but it's not cold enough for anything woolly or sunny enough for a sunhat, so this is just perfect. It was meant to have a pretty flower on the side and one more round of crochet at the end, but when I tried it on for size I was told "it's fine as it is, actually" and she took it. Who am I to argue with the Birthday Girl? *shrug*
YARN: Wendy Sublime Cotton DK
PATTERN: from The Green Dragonfly
She kept the hat on all afternoon and tried to wear it in the bath which I think is a good sign. I've a feeling there may be more of these to come - but next time I won't tell her until it's complete (with flower!)
