Summer Projects

I started so many small projects this summer. It was kind of nuts… but that is me. Most of my projects had been ¬†blankets or large sweaters. They were too big to have on my lap when it was warm so it gave me free rein to get some new stuff going on.

I made his and her alpaca bamboo hats for a wedding gift. This is hers. They are so soft. I only finished his on the day of the wedding and forgot to get a pic before I wrapped it.

At the cottage, I made a mother daughter hat set out of Sirdar cotton from Baadeck Yarns. It was dyed to automatically make the pattern. I love how they turned out. Especially, how they match but are not exactly the same.

Finally, I made a sweater set for a friend’s baby girl. I love the Malbrigo merino yarn. It was in crayon colors and I got lego buttons.
