New Hat for Peeps


It's a wacky week of wild ups and downs and lots of extra homeschooling stuff. So, I'll just check in for a quick post on the latest winter wear FO.

The leftover yarn from Peeps Thrum Mittens, mixed with one of the other colors of sale merino yarn, created a little coordinating hat. I cannot express how soft and NOT itchy this yarn happens to be. I can see many days of snowy enjoyment for Peeps with her new hat and thrummed mittens.

(BTW, no news on the hockey team placement yet. Try outs for Hockeyman are done but the teams won't be posted until late Saturday. Needless to say, it's a little hard knitting with crossed fingers but that's just the way it will be until the teams are announced.)

I'll keep my fingers crossed, too. It certainly won't hurt my knitting. Heck, it might even help...

Love the hat! Peeps is one lucky little girl to have such a talented Mom and all!

Gotta love a project that's made up of leftovers, is a quick and easy knit, and ends up being such a winner!

Cute hat (cute pigtails too). The PeeWees have a tryout scrimmage next Sunday for drafting purposes. Good luck to Hockeyboy!

As long as you are knitting, your needles are crossed for him! ;o)

And you gotta love a one skein wonder like Peep's hat.

I love the way you did the stripes in this hat! The colors are perfect and they "meld" so beautifully.

Hockeyboy should have good karma - he deserves something GOOD!
