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.
