welcome spring


It's here - bright, sunny and wet spring. We've had a lot of muddy days out there, all of them ending with two exhausted little boys. Knitting has almost been set aside. Luckily little O needed a new hat, and that's what he got.

He got A hat with bright stripes. In the end it's like Brooklyntweed's Turn A Square, though I didn't follow the pattern. (I had to start over three times, since I tried silly things like short rows to cover the ears and weird-looking color work...)

Pattern: Turn A Square by Jared Flood
Yarn: DROPS alpaca
Needles: 2,5 mm
