Hats-next year

What have I been knitting lately? Hats. From the same skein of yarn, donated by alpaca's of Friday Harbor. I had bought this for P. Mookie on a trip with her to FH over a year ago. Then Butters asked me to knit him something for the first time ever- a red hat, he said! I decided to dip into stash. I made the Yarn Harlot's unoriginal hat, which turned out too girly.
Guess who gets that one.

Then I made a basic hat, it ended up a bit big. Alpaca is 8 times warmer than wool and very soft, so next winter both heads will be warm and matching.

I'm also knitting a sweater for Friend and posting it on the shop blog.

Baby Girl's hat reminds me of my favorite hat that you knitted for me. Lovely.

Oh, the hats are so cute, but not as cute as Baby Girl and Butters.

Having a stash...ah, it's a wonderful feeling. Sorry I won't enjoy the red whateveryouweregoingtomakeme, but delighted you put it to good use.
