Ahem…someone in this house has joined the knitting community and has knit a
Little Man asked me to make him a hat with stripes and ear flaps and after hearing so much and seeing so many Thorpes i decided it would be perfect for Little Man.
He loves it! And i love how it looks on him. If you tie the strings up it pulls the ear flaps in very nicely and keep him super cozy and warm. I will be making more, one for me and maybe next year for hubby.
Made for: Little Man
Size: 20 inch/medium it is a little big on Little Man but this way he will be able to use it next year as well
Dates: Jan 31-Feb 1, 2009, very quick knit 🙂
Yarns: Universal Yarn Classic Chunky in Flannel & Navy
Notes: The first couple rows are a bit finicky, i actually found it easier to work on 3 Dps for 4 rows or so until i had enough sts to move to having 4 dps to work off of.
Pattern is well written and moves along quickly. It is quite addicting-i already chose the yarn from my stash for mine but i haven’t started knitting it yet-i have some other things to finish first.
For the foodies out there here is a picture of Hubby’s first sushi that he made this weekend:
Well i am off to play with my guy and Tomorrow we are going to Elmo Grows Up 🙂 Hope you all have a great weekend-Hopefully after this weekend i will be able to reveal who the black and white paw belongs to.
