Drew, Meghan and the Little Lady are still visiting and our days have been busy, busy, busy. We've had lots of at home snuggle time, but we've also had many day trips. All of this has given me time to do some "just for fun" knitting. Luckily, Meghan is a knitter, too, so after Little Lady has been tucked in, we've gotten some serious knitting done. Also, those hour drives gave me time to knit away. This past week I knit 3 adult hats, and 1 for Little Lady. Not bad!
I first saw the Capucine hat that I knitted for Meghan on Bending Birches a couple of weeks ago. (A sweet little blog if you've never been there, go for a warm smile :) It was so adorable I had to give it a go. I knitted one in a wool/silk blend, and I knitted the one pictured here with Noro's Furisode, a silk/cotton/wool blend. It knits up fast, used only 1 hank, and is fun, fun, fun. The directions can be found HERE. This was a fast and easy hat to knit, and the results are a 1 of a kind dream, that is sure to get lots of attention when worn :) (BTW... we did trip the "ponytail" tassel so it is 3.5" long, and the side tassels are 8" long.)
I will still be busy with the kids this week, YAY, so WFA crafting is on the back burner. We do have a very special give-away that we will be posting on Wednesday, and Michelle will continue her knitting class. Another, busy, glorious autumn week :)
