Another hat finished. This one is for my daughter. She has been asking and asking for a purple hat and when I found this pattern I knew we had the right one.
I used Cascade 220 superwash, because I don't relish hand washing my childrens knits. Her favorite part is the long braids.
The pattern is Meghan's Braids from One-Skein Wonders and is a great pattern book for stash busting. The book is broken up into sections by yarn weight which makes it very handy when you have a stray skein or two.
She is actually standing still in these photos. Surprised? Well when you are picking fresh strawberries from the yard and eating them it is better to stand still :)
I will be gone from this space for the next week. Tomorrow I am heading to Las Vegas with Miss D. We don't come home till Friday. No kids, no husbands, no responsibilities!! Jealous? I get back Friday but I will be leaving again Saturday morning for a ladies only trip to see the Lion King on stage. My mother, my sister, my daughter, and myself will be meeting up with other female members of our family and having lunch and watching the show. I will check in with you all next week. Hope you are having a glorious start to your summer!!
