And that night, I started right away. Yeah, I have a Birthday Swap package to finish (with a really cool cross-stitch!) and an ornament swap that I haven't even DECIDED on for this coming Friday. Not to mention the two Christmas gifts that I want to make, but they're both for immediate family who I think would understand. But kids without cold weather accessories and me with a huge yarn stash? "Im right on top of that, Rose!"*
One red wool hat finished already, and I used Sean's head as a guide. I started a sparkly white acrylic hat for a little girl and well....it fit me. Serves me right for not doing a gauge swatch. I won['t be making that mistake again.
Luckily, I found a little girl at our Philly Thanksgiving that it fit. This is Brian's cousin's daughter, so I guess that makes Brian and Miss K. second cousins. Pretty sweet, no? She wore it the rest of the night, which of course makes me very happy. :)
* Fifty cool points to you, my nineties friends, if you knew that this movie quote was from "Don't Tell Mom the Babysitter's Dead."
