The Red Urchin

Shame on me. I didn’t head straight away to my blog but to Ravelry to post this hat when it was done.
I have been bad to my blogging. I cannot blame anyone but myself.

Urchin pattern by Ysolda Teague on knitty.com

My DD#1 is modeling it for me…but it’s all mine.
She’s been knitting alot this week, having made two ear flap hats for herself without a pattern. She’s Mommy’s little crafter. I love it.
Happy Thanksgiving to everyone….peace to the world and ewe!

Tada! Guess what I’m wearing tomorrow with my new red Dansko Mary Janes, you betcha, my finished Montego Bay Scarf.
I gave up going to the 80 inch mark. I love it the way it is. I want to thank my darling daughter #1, A, for taking the time to braid the forty sections of trim for me…my hands just couldn’t do it. Thank goodness for such useful youth.
