The Yoda Hat

Knit, felted, non-toxic ear-stiffener applied, and now drying.

It turned out even better than I hoped.

It will be gifted with a swampy-brown Jedi robe and pants. Perfect for life on Dagoba!
(if you don't know where Dagoba is, you are not the Star Wars fan I thought you were! haha)

A Few More Gifts Off The Needles

Baroness Beret for my mom.

Beret (Ravelry link) for my niece Maya, as per her specifications.

Sweet Baby Cap for Isla. I cannot wait for her to wear this! Blue Sky Alpaca Melange is super dreamy. She'll be the coziest and cutest little pixie in the playground.

Hmmm, all hats in this post.

There are others, but the recipients may see this blog. I'm keeping them under wraps for now, but oh, Salon sisters, I can't wait to show you in person next week!

Best Hat Ever

From Boutique Knits. Grey for myself, and I gave a cream one to Sarah on her birthday.
The only downside is that I haven't found another hat pattern since that I love as much. So I'll probably make myself another one in another colour. Although the thought of the same hat a third time doesn't appeal right now. Perhaps after aaaaaalllllllllll my holiday knitting is done I'll be more inspired.

Chocolate Love

Is there anything better than seeing the sweater you knit on the babe it was meant for??

I'm in love.

But forget the sweater...look at that sweet little girl!

For Baby J

Ooooooooh, I was so happy to pick out girly buttons for this wee kimono cardigan. Vintage ones from my grandma. My mom has her collection now and they are all lined up by colour in little old glass spice jars. I could play with them all day. Normally I try to avoid buttons on things I knit, but after checking out this collection, I might just change my mind...
And yes, I am well aware that this picture quality sucks and you can hardly even see the button detail. Be patient, and I may just get a close up of the buttons and also, the baby wearing the sweater! I can't wait to see her in it, sweet little sugar lump.

Playsilks, Drying in the Afternoon

Dyed with Koolaid. Can I just say that I'm so glad my kids don't realize that people actually drink that stuff? I sure enjoyed it as a kid myself, though...
