DD #1 has taken to wearing knit hats lately, both indoors and out. I thought a new one for her would be just the thing to get rid of some scraps of yarn I had laying around. Besides, I had just finished knitting those knee socks for DD#2. We wouldn't want DD#1 to feel left out. I made the hat a little long, but she can always turn up the brim if she prefers.
Her favorite thing in the world is reading. So in exchange for a wonderful foot massage that she gave me yesterday, we took a little trip to Borders tonight. I put the finishing touches on the hat while she searched for new books. Then we had a little photo shoot. Actually, DD#1 just sat and read Manga as I hopped around her with the camera.
I bought Marion Zimmer Bradley's The Mists of Avalon for her. It's been years since I read it. I know it's the type of book she will love, I just can't remember if there are any parts that are a too racy for a 7th grader. If you've read it lately, I'd love your opinion.
Yarn: Leftovers of Nature Wool & Paton's Classic Wool
Needles: US Size 7, 2 circs.
Pattern: I made it up as I went along
Started November 6, Finished November 7
I got another wonderful surprise from my Sockret Pal today. Some tasty treats and a nifty mug from Harry & David. Thank you once again Sockret Pal. I can't wait to find out who you are so that I may thank you personally.
