In the interest of starting anew in 2008, I figured I would go ahead post the last of my 2007 knitting. Did I mention that I knit a bunch of hats? Well, I did. Meatheads were the hot item for Little Sir's funky bunch. I decided to embellish with wool felt appliques.
I knit one for Little Sir first. I needed a prototype for blindstitching the seal (cut free hand, thank you very much). Clearly, I needed the stitching practice.
The stitching for the one for his friend CPea went a little better (and it makes me all jolly to know that CPea LOVES this hat!).
The one for his friend KB, better still.
And Mo's was the clear winner. I almost hated to say goodbye to that polar bear (I free hand cut the polor bear too. I have no idea how I managed it). Truly. I now heart blindstitch.
And then there was the requisite Koolhaas for Special K. Everyone else was doing it.
I was able to use the Malabrigo that I was going to use for fingerless mitts before finding out that Special K would have no use for mitts without fingers... I think Koolhaas was the perfect pattern for the yarn.
The details for all the hats are in the 2007 gallery. The hats (even Koolhaas) took relatively little time. And they were pretty enjoyable knits. All right, bring on the sweaters!
Happy New Year! See you in 2008 with more hobbies, more projects; and, of course, there will be more pie!
