Just a little something

On this dark and rainy day here in Boston, I thought this would be the perfect project to share. This is the owl hat (I don't have the link right now, but it's a free pattern out there on the internet). Can you see the owls? They are cute little owls made from cables. I'm imagining the owls out it the deep dark woods trying to stay warm and dry on today.

I dressed the hat up with a little artistic moon - made by weaving some light green and off white yarns together. And finally, the self-striping yarn is Jasper by Berroco.

The yarn was given to me by Nicole, and I gifted this hat to one of my good friends Emily. Emily's working in Africa right now and was looking for a hat to keep her noggin cozy. It's one big circle of giving!

Another note about Emily - I was snow-shoeing with her in Vermont a couple of years ago when she said something to the tune of "I love the winter foliage", which made me think ~ knitted items are foliage we wear in winter. And the blog was named...

Cute, cute, cute. I think I'd embroider some eyes on the owlies. Off to pattern hunt!

I laaarrrvvvee my owl hat and the fact that it's on the internets makes it extra special. Hope you are well small Katie face and perhaps I'll see you soon? Will be in Philly from 21 November, and maybe we could even swing through Boston???

Did you get any special deliveries yet? Keep me posted!
