I couldn't help myself


OK, I swear, I'm really not normally the type of person who would buy or wear a matching outfit with her daughter...but I couldn't resist the idea of making matching hats. Especially because both E & I needed new hats.

So after I made a cabled hat for myself, I had pretty much exactly enough yarn left in the skein to make a smaller version for E. It was my first time using Lion Brand Wool (I usually buy Patons because it's 1 oz. more for the same price), and it was nice but I really could've used that extra ounce. The hat is just barely long enough for my giant noggin. And E's just fits her too. *sigh* Oh well. I guess we'll wear them for a month or so and then maybe I'll sell them or give them away. I do really like how the cabling turned out though.

Here's a pic I managed to snap of the two of us wearing the hats before E ran away.

They turned out great! You have to teach me how so I can make matching hats in different colors for my stair steps! :)
