A Berry Cute Hat


My sweet niece, Maja, turned two last Friday. Her parents had asked us over for a cup of coffee and a slice of birthday cake today. So, knowing that Maja would probably be showered in toys by her thrilled grandparents I decided to do a bit of knitting.... I stumbled over the Berry Cute Hat from http://www.fibertrends.com/

I bought the yarn a while ago. Last Tuesday the hat was on my personal knitting menu.... at last. If Maja had had a head no bigger than a large crape fruit, the first attempt of a berry hat would have fitted just fine. Too tight due to too small needles. Thursday Pindsvinet visited; we knitted two-three hours, enjoyed our antipasti and resumed the knitting session until midnight.... as usual :) I gave the hat another chance - it wasn't as if I had anything else to offer Maja for her birthday! I actually managed to finish the hat in time and birthday girl Maja seemed to like it (thank you, knitting gods!). Anyway, here it is \o/

Hej Karin!
Fandt herhen igennem din søde kommentar på min blog!

Det er dog den sødeste hue, du der har strikket, jeg skyndte mig til Fibertrends, men man kan da vist ikke købe mønsteret online der, eller er det mig der ikke helt kan gennemskud det?!?

Hej Anne!

Velkommen til :)

Fiber Trends er faktisk lidt bøvlede, når det kommer til deres opskrifter. Huen har bestillingskode CH09, men nej, man kan ikke få opskriften online. Jeg må skamfuldt erkende, jeg faktisk betalte en mindre formue for at få den sendt med posten, dvs. ca. 75,- kr. i alt. Må jeg minde om, at dollaren er særligt lav for tiden... :)

Hej Karin,

Hvor er den hat bare for fed :D Wow!!

Tak for din interesse på ravelry for mit kommende elefant projekt - håber det kommer på nålen når huset er færdigt. Det drømmer jeg da om :)

Hej Else!

Glæder mig, du kan li' den - jeg kunne ikke selv stå for den ;)

Jeg ser meget frem til at møde elefanten i en 'Else-version', så når huset er finito, så er det på med.... nålen :D
