I knit this adorable hat using leftovers from Gin's Elwood, and I couldn't be happier (except that I wish I'd knit it one size larger) (listen to the voices in your head!).
- Ravelry Project Page: Murre for Gin's Elwood
- Pattern: Murre by Meiju Knits (free pattern on Ravelry, sizes 3m to adult)
- Needles: US 6 & 8 – DPNs
- Start to Finish: September 28-30, 2016
I used my I-cord maker to make the ties (in mere minutes!).
I used all of the purple leftovers, subbing in the white to finish that section and also to carry throughout for the lifted stitches. With the exception of white, the other colors are striped in the same sequence as the sweater. It coordinates with the sweater in a very matchy way without matching.
There are still leftovers! I will likely riff on this pattern again…
This is the best modeled shot I could manage yesterday. Selfies with a wiggly, grabby 5-month old aren't easy! She grabs for everything and is almost desperate to instantly get whatever-it-is into her mouth — a continuous motion. (I had to save my phone!)
Her mum says that she had a bad night last night and the morning wasn't so good, either; she may be getting close to cutting a tooth.
Or she has a cold.
Also, I predict that she'll be sitting up on her own for extended periods this month. She is absolutely fascinated by Jün and his antics… I get the feeling that she can't wait to join in!!
