This was another test knit for Leethal, and I'm really happy with how it turned out! This was my second go; first time round the hat was huge, way too big to wear so I had to frog it and reknit. I only noticed this of course after blocking and sewing in the ends *sigh*. So it took me a day longer, but still only a 3 day knit in total! The twisted stitches again are used to great effect, and I love the pattern on the brim.
Next FO is a swift! Not technically done by me, but for me by my amazing husband.
Another FO, not totally craft related, is the birthday shopping. Gremlin turns 2 at the end of this month, followed by Bubbas 4th birthday almost 2 weeks later. I like to be organised so bought everything at the end of last month, and did the final bit of shopping this week at Bubbas preschool! They were selling some of their old books, so I spent 20 minutes having a browse and decided on these.
