my monday night knitnight group held our second annual post-holiday swap a couple weeks ago. this year i was crafting for shannon, who had asked for a slouchy hat. i chose the snapdragon tam pattern by ysolda teague (rav link):
lily modeled it for me because i have a giant noggin and don't like to put on hats i'm making for other people lest i stretch them out.
it turned out a bit on the large side anyway, but shannon really liked it and said it's super warm and i'm happy that she's happy!
there was also a discussion one day about what is the most horrific craft we could think of and a googley-eyed hamster made of dryer lint was what shannon came up with. so of course i had to make her one of those too:
and who was crafting for me? the lovely and talented blair!!
she knows me so well and was spot on with all my wonderful gifts! a home alone hoop, a cowl of the 7 ajahs (from the wheel of time book series), and a perler bead flux capacitor (that glows in the dark!!!)
hooray for knitnight swap, i'm already looking forward to next year!
