Don't bother me I'm accessorizing
If I look slightly pleased with myself, it's because I am. This hat, though bigger and thicker than the original, is so warm and squishy and fun I just can't stand it. I made the smallest version, owing to the worsted rather than sport weight yarn I used, and it fits perfectly. I might have to make another using a thinner yarn, just to have choices, you know? You gotta have choices!
And because I am truly a big Dork I made matching leather cuffs for Owen and his Auntie Sarah (click the link and scroll down for the terrific tutorial). I found this wonderfully awful belt at my favorite thrift store, Village Merchants, for $5 and with a little help from JJ's muscles (those snaps are hard to pound in) whipped up a few crazy cuffs. I see more of these in my future...
