New Hat!

I made Miss B. a new hat for Easter! I used three balls of extra fine merino yarn that KK had given me, stranded together. The yarn color was white, lavender and a darker purple. I made two balls of yarn to start-- one that had one of each color and one ball that had two strands of lavender and one of white (I ran a bit short of the dark purple to do the whole hat in the one colorway). I knit the first two inches of the hat in the lighter color, the middle 5 inches in the darker color and then I alternated again towards the top. The Pattern came from Susan Anderson's "Itty Bitty Hats" book (which is a fabulous pattern book!) and the pattern calls for you to knit four rows with eyelets for the ribbons to be threaded through. To finish off the hat you tie additional ribbon cuttings on the top of the hat. It's fun for Spring and I think Miss B. is looking forward to trying it out!

Made?! How fabulous are you?!

And by the way...I found the entertainment stand at Wegman's while I was in the aisle looking for parchment paper. :-) So yes; they could use a little organization 101.
