Entr'acte

This one doesn't really count as the finishing of an UnFinished Object, since I started and finished it yesterday. I'm pretty sure that "getting the house ready for selling" means knitting up all the little bits of leftover yarn so that they don't get tangled in the move. Right?



Koala Baby Bonnet

Yarn: the last of the Northwoods Mittens leftovers

Pattern: Elyse Heise's Simple Lace Baby Bonnet


This was a delightful pattern, simple as claimed, and taking very little yarn. The alpaca I was using up was worsted, not DK, but it knit up nicely on the needles called for. It's probably more 6-12 months than 3-6 months, size-wise, but there’s no baby I would inflict this warm, soft bonnet on in this 90° heat, so we’ll have to wait and see.
