Fantastic Flower Hat

How cute is this pattern:

It is the Fantastic Flower Hat from Lucinda Guy's Handknits for Kids.

I'm thinking about cranking out a matching scarf. But first I want to make the Dougie Dog hat. Then I'll see if I've got enough yarn, and time, left to make scarves before Thursday (the gift drop off day). In my favour -- it is Superbowl Sunday today, which equates to lots of knitting time for me.

Other good stuff: I received a shipment of Sundara sock yarn. I love the colours she creates and the 'Navy Purple over Salmon' was my achilles heel this time around -- it just jumped off her web page screaming 'buy me'. What's a girl to do? It's not like it goes bad ;o)

Navy Purple over Salmon:

Navy over Cerulean:

Sea Water (I didn't do a great job of accurately capturing the colours in this one -- it has more turquoisey greens than you see here):

And last but not least - the pink in the mosaic blanket has been vetoed. That it would be 'too girly'. Maybe I do just stick with the blues, browns and greens?

Have a great Sunday!

That is such a cute hat!! And the Sundara yarns you received are so pretty!

I think your mosaic blanket will look great, even if you don't add any pink. The blues, browns and greens will look great, especially with all the different yarn textures and bits of sparkle :)

That hat is so so cute! I'm sorry to hear about the loss of the pink. I think it would have been great, but I'm sure it will look wonderful even without it!

The hat is gorgeous. I must try out that pattern one day. I have knit a few other items from that book, and I love all of them. Your new yarns look beautiful.

That hat is sooooo cute.

I am going to have to come over and fondle the Sundara.
