This is how I am welcoming the Christmas season!!! I could not wait to see baby Nicholas with the Christmas hat… It came together really fast and fit him perfectly.
The specs: the red yarn is Encore by Plymouth Yarn Co., the white is Eskimo, size 7 circular needles (7″). The pattern (from Leisure Arts) has you knitting the pom-pom. After trying it a couple of times I gave up and the crochet hook came to the rescue. I did not put anything inside the pom-pom as crocheting it tightly helps it keep its shape. I am happy Mary at Heindselman’s showed me the hat she had made – I just had to make one for my grandchild.
So this is my finish for today… I will be enjoying Nicholas instead of joining the throngs of people shopping for after-Thanksgiving bargains. Well, maybe later I will succumb to the temptation and look for a small Christmas tree, as the puppy will definitely tear apart our floor to ceiling one.
Enjoy the day!
