I was so excited to be in the building that brought me to this town, I had to document it.
KNITTING REVEAL!! I can reveal what my secret knitting was this past month. I was working on a test knit for Kate Oates of Tot Toppers. If you follow my knitting at all, you will know that I am a huge fan of her work. (I think I knit 10 of her designs last year alone) I was excited to test knit a hat out of her new booklet, New Girl. The hat is a simple colorwork project with beautiful details that really make the finished object. I learned how to do an applied i-cord for this project and I really enjoyed that finish.
I also love the giant pompom on top. Lucy wanted the biggest pompom ever, and I think I succeeded! Any bigger, and it probably would pull the hat off her little head. The booklet is a compliment to the New Guy collection, although I think all the pieces would work for either gender. All the pieces are knit out of fingering weight yarn and would make a great baby gift.
Alright, off to grocery shop and do laundry. No kid activites in town on Mondays, so we try and get a lot of chores done. Have a great week!
