We're going to go to the Motherland for a visit in December, so I thought the Little Mister might need a nice warm hat. He will definitely still be in the helmet (which has a big hole in the top and doesn't cover his ears), so I knit a hat big enough to go over the helmet. With any luck, we will get a few years of use out of this hat.
My mother-in-law has been visiting for the last week and we decided to go to Yarnivore the other day. I hadn't been in there in ages and I have to say, they've really spruced the place up! They have a new, larger store (just across the parking lot from the old one) and they had a lot of great new yarn. I picked up this skein of Malabrigo Rasta and knit up an Elf Cap in just a couple of hours. I made the Small/Medium size and I think I have enough yarn left over to make an Extra Small cap for our baby friend who does not have to wear a helmet.
