How Much Is That Doggy In the Window?
I finished another hat for the Tiny Prince.
This one matches his
(Should I confess right now that the pile of Prince skins is growing by leaps and bounds as the Solstice approaches? Pajamas and long sleeved onesies and such. Big Pile!)
This was a 2-day knit (weekend with little else pressing to do and a good football game on TV), though I actually started it over a week ago.
I loosely followed a Cottage Creations pattern (Toddler's Norski Sweater and Cap) that I used in 2006 for the Knitting Olympics.
Instead of the traditional motifs (and lice), I used one of the Jacquard Patterns from Beautiful Knitting Patterns by Gisela Klopper.

Yarn is Elann.com Superwash Worsted, knit on size 3 and 6 needles.
I'm pleased with the result.
And the ties will keep him from pulling it off (or at least slow im down).
