I’m continuing my knits for Natalie and her menagerie. In addition to contributing to a cause I believe in, it’s also helping me clear out some random/leftover yarn from the stash.
Case in point:
I still had a ball of Patons Classic Wool in Commotion kicking around from when I knit a Kitty Cat hat for the fair. My plan was to make another cat hat, but I found the wool a bit on the itchy side… not great for a knit that touches the cheeks.
So, I whipped up something simpler.
The pattern is Regular Guy, though it works just as well for a gal. It’s easy, quick… and when I was done I noticed there was still a fair bit left in the ball. So I ran some quick numbers and…
I knit a smaller one. This one is about toddler-size.
And now, Natalie can auction the pair off as the perfect Mommy and Me set!
I’ll have to dig through the stash to see if I have anything that will work for a Daddy and Me set too!
