I have been meaning, for a while, to knit a hat for my two year old daughter Fiona. I finally found the perfect pixie hood to knit up for her.
The designer of this pattern is a friend and briliant photographer/Mom/pattern designer Amanda Keeys. Amanda gave me this pattern a while back and I have been waiting for the opportunity and inspiration to start the project. I found it! This last weekend my children were in a friends wedding.
The wedding was beautiful and the children were (surprisingly) perfect. Corin proudly carried the ACTUAL RINGS, down the isle and handed them to the Best Man. I was so proud…and relieved. I decided to knit up Fiona’s new hood from the left over yarn.
For the main color I am using MadelineTosh DK in Robin’s Egg color-way. For the contrasting color I am using MadelineTosh Vintage in Silver Fox color-way. I have finished with the edge and I have just started the section using the main color. I will post pictures of my progress.
