For the record, I do shop at my LYS stores. But sometimes I crave something different that I haven't found locally, which brings me back to Chelsea Yarns...
While shopping recently on her site, I found this amazing yarn called Candy, by Feza yarns, a wool/acrylic bulky yarn with felted wool balls attached as one with the yarn. It LOOKS like candy, doesn't it??
I knew my little girl needed a hat out of this cool yarn in a funky design.
So I cast on and whipped up this funky little hat for her.
When I gave it to her in the morning, her eyes widened with delight.
And promptly put it on her head. And kept it there all day.
Not a chance.
LOVE the knot! Isn't it cool!
Raveled here: candy-topknot
BTW...Little Miss O is wearing a Noro Kureyon hooded poncho I made her many years ago in the photo. I had the yarn displayed in a bowl in my living room and she picked it up and asked me to make her something pretty out of the yarn so "I can wear a pretty rainbow!" How could I resist. She has worn it for four years now and it still looks brand new. How's that for a good investment? If your little girl needs one, there is one in store at Rexer-Parkes or we could design one especially for her.
