Ok. One week of summer down....how many to go.... I have been making my lists and loving the Internet. There are so many crafty and creative parents out there and I am trying to ensure that we have a fun filled summer. Crafting, playing, beach fun, friend fun, barbecue's, cooking and such.
The kids I and made these silhouettes for Father's Day. They really turned out cute and were inexpensive and priceless all at the same time :)
The tutorial is here. This was fun, easy, the kids did all the painting which they always enjoy and I just handled the ummm technical aspect.
I also finished up the skull hat for my little boy. I modified it down by leaving out some skulls to fit his noggin and it fits beautifully. Unfortunately he wasn't really all that hip on wearing a wool beanie in 85 degree weather for a photo shoot so this shot will have to do. I used Cascade 220 superwash for the yarn and went one size down on the needles. Pattern is We Call Them Pirates (ravelry), super easy to follow, fast, and fun. I am still working steadily on my hedgerow coat but I think all of these small knits are making me too used to instant gratification because I want to be done already. I think I'll get one more hat in before the month is up....
