So, instead, photos of older projects. I sent the Mizzle shawl to a friend who spent last week receiving radiation therapy. It was a long distance hug. I wish I could have been there in person, but since she was in isolation all week (literally radioactive - her husband has a Geiger counter), I guess the long distance hug was just as good.
Yesterday, I had the chance to photograph a hat I'd knit and given last fall, forgetting to snap a picture before giving it. Isn't she cute? She's looking at Trixie. It was overcast, so I had to use the flash - not the best picture. Sorry about that.
I didn't use a pattern for this one. It's a simple cable with a pointy crown made from Lion Brand Baby's First. This yarn is so soft, a 50/50 cotton/acrylic blend.
Her mommy says this is their favorite hat because it does not slip down over her eyes. I call it Cabled Pixie, because I think she looks like a winter pixie in it. LOVE those cheeks! (I secretly call her Cheeky.)
I also knit two chemo caps this month, but I haven't photographed them yet. I am almost to the point where I will have to buy yarn in order to knit more hats.
