Absolutely Beautiful

The weather was absolutely beautiful yesterday feeling much more like Spring than Winter...
The girls and I lapped it up with a lot of outside time, it was the perfect opportunity to grab a couple of pics of the new beanie I made for Miss Connie.... The pattern was from this super cute book that I borrowed from my local library last week. I used the most divine Alpaca yarn to make it up, a gift from the gorgeous Kate, thank you SO much Kate you truly are a gem!!!!!I made the biggest size (2+ years) and added an extra 8 stitches when I cast on. I did this as I was using 8ply yarn instead of the 12ply that the pattern called for and 4mm needles instead of 5.5mm....
I'm so happy with how the size turned out, it has a lot of give in it and fits both my girls heads which is a bonus.... :)
Here's hoping the Sun is shinning in your neck of the woods and you've had the chance to enjoy it, even if it was only for a little while.... Take Care :)

  3. How gorgeous is your baby! Just like a little dolly. The hat looks great, I'm so pleased the wool worked for you. Sunny days but freezing cold here at the moment.

  7. Very adorable hats Jodie. I bet they are super warm too. We have had some sunshine but lots of wind. It has warmed up though since last week was so cold.
