I've been knitting……
We're headed to cool Alaskan summer weather in a few weeks and new hats are in order 🙂
My big two kids are going on a solo adventure…. no parents…. no family…. to a Fine Arts Camp. TWO weeks without their mom, whatever will they do??
Yes, I know, they'll have an amazing time. And while honestly it really kills me a little to know I won't see the end of camp performance…. I am so happy that they get to enjoy this amazing opportunity.
But, they certainly needed hand knits to keep their heads warm…. to look cool…. and to take a little piece of mama love with them…. (okay maybe that last one was what I needed)
A funky bulky beret for my artsy girl. It's a tam/beret sort of hat. Super quick and easy and my girl has been twisting her hair up into a bun and tucking it under that hat and looking far to grown up…. this one was knit up with two strands of Pure Wool Giotto uruguay single ply. (pattern here) My changes can be found in my Ravelry notes.
And right now I'd better get moving….. there's a huuuuuuuuge list of "to-do's" staring at me to get ready for our weekend road trip camping extravaganza. An eight hour drive to Texas to go to the Kerville Folk Festival. The Indigo girls are playing, along with a ton of other super talented folks that I can't wait to listen to. Four full days of sun and music and food….. yeah-hoo!!
See you next week!
