I have exchanged hats for a very sweet baby jacket in a wonderfully pretty shade of soft green. I even have matching buttons to go with it!
Anyway, it’s just the back piece that you see there and since I’m not under pressure to finish this by tomorrow – the original due date for Oz Hatfest – I can take my sweet time with this. I substituted the original yarn – Baby Cashmerino – with a 100% pure cotton version as per the mum-to-be’s request. After having knit with wool for so long, cotton feels and looks very different – lighter and very much smoother.
On a separate note, I’ll be painting my face tomorrow for a dinner party. Need to be off to pack up the “tools” and get some rest (I slept at midnight last night and woke up at an ungodly hour of 5:30am!!!!).
