A Gorgeous Hat for a Gorgeous Girl

I’m so pleased that I can share a picture of my friends little girl (Nina) wearing one of the hats I’ve made. I wrote about it here: http://annagueldenhaupt.wordpress.com/2009/05/25/bonnie-bonnet/. And now look at this gorgeous little girl:

When I was making the hat I was really worried that it would be too small, but she’s nearly ten months old (I think I remember that right) and it still fits perfectly.

And that’s a good thing too, especially for this time of year, when it’s getting bitterly cold.

Fingerless Gloves in White

I’ve been meaning to put these fingerless gloves on here for about a year. I made them for a colleagues mother last year, can you believe it? Last year? He did tell me that his mother had put them on the other day, as it’s getting colder. Yes, it definitely is. Even I, who am always really warm, am now getting cold. Especially when I’m outside. Anyway, here they are. I used a pattern from Garnstudio and it was such a pleasure to knit, really easy and quick.

I remember when I started making them I took them apart a few times as I thought they weren’t going to be big enough. That probably has something to do with the fact that my colleague didn’t tell me that they were for his mother and not for him. Oh well, I got there in the end.
