I felt like I needed a small break from socks, and I was reorganizing the stash, so I decided to knit my son Charlie a super luxe hat for the upcoming winter months here in Ohio. It took me 2 days to knit it, using Nashua Handknits Snowbird( an alpaca/wool blend). The pattern is from "Knits for Children and their Teddies" by Fiona McTague. All the patterns in the book are adorable, and sized from small bear to 5 year-old child.
I'm pretty excited for this coming Thursday--going to see the musical Wicked at PlayhouseSquare in Cleveland. Its sold out, and I heard it is excellent.
