After letting it sit for a few weeks, I decided to unravel it. The sock, made with two strands of yarn, was too bulky. While I like the pattern, I didn't like how it came out. So rather than waste more yarn and time on something I didn't like and probably wouldn't wear, I am using the yarn for something else. Of course, it is proving a bear to unravel. Figures.
But on an up-note, I did finish this...
So now I have the unicorn and giraffe hats done. I have to say this was a fun and quick project and I like the quality of the yarn. I would recommend this to anyone wanting a cute hat for a kid. Two projects off my to-do list.
Also this past week I spent 3 hours 'playing' in a friend's studio. She calls it working, but I come home with stacks of fabric and I get to organize someone, so for me it's fun. I also came home with these pieces from a quilt she had started some time ago and no longer wanted. I snatched it up as it would be welcome in my house.
Most of it are pieces of the panels cut up. There are two pieces of fabric which I will be getting from her I plan on using as sashing and backing. Now I have to figure out a layout for the pieces.
