So I am totally channeling the completer/finisher goddess these days. Or maybe I am just picking easy projects! :)
Tonite I finished the beanie for sister, and doesnt it look great. Ok, the photo is a little blurry and you get a picture of me as well, only because the beanie looks better on a head than free standing!
The pattern is by Anna, you can find it at annarella.co.uk. I used some yarn I picked up somewhere, a while ago because it was unusual colours. It is a cotton/acrylic blend, which is good because sister doesnt like wool 'cos it is scratchy. Dont worry, I have had this chat with her:
"yes poor quality wool can be itchy, but I use good quality wool. Just check my credit card receipts!". To which sister replied "You dont know my body, I know my body and I know what makes it itch!". As you may have guessed she is not a knitter!
The good thing about her aversion to wool is that I get to try different yarns out, so that I can make her things. Guess I shouldnt complain!
