i finally finished a hat i was knitting for our new baby. the pattern i got from ravelry. i had bought, actually paid for, the same hat for zev last year at a local fair. i debated over it for awhile, it was expensive and i knew i could knit it. but i decided to buy it thinking when will i actually knit it though. well...i lost that expensive hat about a month later. finally months after that i bought the pattern and cast on. the whole thing knit up really quickly but then my back began to bother me so much when i was sitting that i put it aside (with only the i cords left to finish...). last week or so i took the unfinished hat and kiddos to the beach...and viola! the yarn is handspun, hand dyed from our very own mohair boys which i plied with some sheep wool. the hat is a bit small for zevy, my frisky little model but i had to see what it looked like on somebody!
