At last!

Yippeee! A strange experience of late in the Blethers household ... Ladies and gentlemen, I present a finished item!! My latest strategy for my recent finishing inertia is to tackle small items only. This is Isis from Colinette's Artifacts book - knitted in Prism, Autumn Leaves colourway. Prism is a pleasure to work with and comes is such a fantastic array of colours. Voila! A hat to face this chilly, blustery weather in less than 4 hours. Modelled here by an extremely embarrassed, and somewhat peaky looking (awwwww, bless her!) DD1. Just look at the non-verbal body pose here (arms crossed and grimace). It's just as well she loves her mum! (Had initially planned this one for me. However, steroids and my resultant wee moon-face left me looking like a plump boiled egg ... NOT a good look!)

Another one in the most howling pink shades imaginable about to hit the needles for herself ... once I have finished her boyfriend's Noro beanie. She will be chuffed about the compliment! I know we mums are all biased ... but she is a lovely looking young woman (skanky size 8 too!!) but she does look full of the virus she had here! Hmmmm ... maybe I'd better tell her she has been immortalised in cyber space soon????

that's a very nice hat, I love those colours too. I used to be a skanky size 8 too until I had my two kids!!! We can blame them for everything!!! ;) I'm sure she'll be extra happy to model her pink version. I must make this hat again sometime, I did it with the stalk and it looked silly on me, so think I'll leave it out like you did, as it looks much better.
