Fiona’s Pixie Hood

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.

I made knitted bow ties off of a pattern I have been working on for the boys and crocheted lacy headbands for the flower girls. I will be doing a post with more pictures later this week.

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.
