Needles: Sz 7 Clover bamboo

Thoughts: Looks super cute on - will have to make this again. 

These two hats were made for our neighbor's boys and she told me today that the football hat has gotten several compliments - yay!

I also made three pairs of slippers (from Knit 2 together), but I don't have pictures of them - hopefully soon!

I finished seaming hubby's sweater last night - it needs a good blocking and a zipper. I'm off to seam Salina for me - the knitting has been finished since August - I had no motivation to seam it while I was still pregnant and no time after The Bug was born. It is sweater weather now, so I want to finish it!


  1. Oh what cute hats. The football one does look great and I love the teddy one too.

  2. The teddy hat is too cute!

  3. My slippers are keeping my feet warm right now! Mom took pics too!
