Don’t get excited. I didn’t knit it; Kathy did. Her blog is a little quiet of late, but she’s been a busy woman, and I’m absolutely blown away by her friendship.
Don’t you love the colors?! I’m itching to see the recipient in it. I hope he likes it… or will at least humor me and wear it for one silly photo. No, I won’t tell you who he is in case someone who knows him is reading, and no… you won’t ever see the photo if he does humor me, because if you haven’t noticed, I don’t put up faces of two-legged littles here.
That’s for Kathy and her mom. I think those two get more joy out of Sissy’s silly fascination with headwear than the rest of us combined. If the purple flower staring into the lens shot wasn’t so friggin’ awesome, this one would be a new favorite. Instead, it’s just cute, silly Sissy.
The girl can rock a hat though, can’t she? I truly don’t stage these photos or do more than crop or adjust the exposure. This nut KNEW when I walked onto the deck with the hat in hand that it was going to be all about her. She just hopped up on the little storage cube and waited for her photo shoot.
Thanks again, Kathy. I hope these photos tickled you and your mom… and that the rest of your family will be patient as you force them to look and laugh.
But wait! Hold onto YOUR hats, because Chanknits.
Why yes, Chirp is a finished.
Pattern: Chubby Chirps is a cute, fun pattern. Keep in mind that I announce regularly that I hate seams, don’t knit toys because of the assembly mess, etc. All of that aside, I loved making this little guy and would consider knitting more!
Yarn: Leftover Plymouth Sockotta. Not my favorite to knit with, but the colors went so well with the hat…
Needles: #1 Clover short dpns. I was worried I was going to snap one a few times as I dug for “knit front and back”…
Verdict: Just knit one yourself. Or ten. If I do another one though, I’m gonna’ find some bronze or black brads for the eyes.
