C’s pixie hood is almost done. I would sat it’s probably about 80%. I have about another 1/2 inch to knit before doing the three needle bind off to shape the hat. After that, a couple of rows of ribbing and it’s voila. I think this time I’ll use I cord for the ties. Although I hate making I cord. Easy but tedious work.
I’m kind of excited to get this done. Ben asked me to make him a beanie so I went out today and bought some more Cascade. I love this colorway. He asked for plain gray but this caught my eye and I just couldn’t leave it behind. I have no idea how it’s going to knit up. Will it be stripey? I’m going to make him a close fitting cap with a wide rib all the way up. I think it will be very stylish.
After that? I want to make socks that look like this. Fabulous striped socks that go all the way to her knees. I did do a little sewing tonight. A mask for tomorrow’s birthday boy. I hope he likes it.
