After last week’s confession, I did my best to use up some skeins of yarn, and I think I succeeded! Check out this beautiful wool yarn:
Using the The Blue Leaf Headband pattern (found for free on Ravelry!), I knitted with double strands of the yarn to make sure it was sturdy and warm.
Doesn’t it have a beautiful lacy pattern?
And then there’s the awesome metal button I found to give it a antiquey-cool-look.
And then to continue my goal of TWENTY preemie hats for Rosie’s Cozies, I made these two little bears. The first was made with this cute pattern from Squishy Chocolate, and the second is an improvisation of my own, though using the same ears from the first pattern. Do you notice the problem I ran into on the second bear?
I’ve decided that eyes are the hardest part to animal hats. Anyone out there have a technique they like?
