Return of the blog...
Sometime in early December Sage lost her hat (seen here) between her school and the day care - she thinks one of the other kids ended up with it, but inquiries and a wanted poster at the day care turned up nothing, nor is it at the school. So anyway, it vanished. Poof!
Not wanting her to freeze in this nasty weather we are having, I knew what needed to be done. So we went to the closest yarn shop that carries Malabrigo (in this case, it was Uncommon Threads in York, PA), and she picked out two skeins of Shocking Pink Malabrigo, because, you know, pink is the new blue.
The mittens were done several weeks ago, and the hat a few days ago, but I didn't have time to sew a string to the mittens to keep them together until Tuesday since I have been so busy with work (Oh yeah, I am working now, at Bass Pro Shops in Harrisburg. I love it there. Except fr the all country, all the time, but that isn't even all that bad.).
My first real attempt at crocheting, in the form of the half-double edge on the Thorpe. It came out pretty good considering I'd never done it before.
Sage loves her new hat and mittens, and she was nice and warm on yesterday's walk to school - that's good, considering it was something like 12°F outside when we walked over. Brrrrrr!
Ok, no more photos.
Mittens are mittens for children and adults
Hat is Thorpe - modified for a different yarn gauge, 96 stitches total on US7's. I didn't write down the changes for the earflaps, though.
Yarn is Malabrigo Worsted, in Shocking Pink.
