I know I've really been MIA lately but behind the scenes I've been knitting up a storm. I guess you could say I caught the knitting bug again:o) Don't you go through times like that where sewing takes a back seat and another hobby creeps up again? It's always that way with me.
A local photographer requested a mouse hat so this is what I made for her. It was fun because I never made a hat like this before. I had some trouble with the ear linings and a fellow Raveler (is that what you call us?? haha) all the way from Iceland helped me out with some ideas. How cool is that? The world really is a small place sometimes.
The ear linings were a bit of a pain to say the least as I first tried to duplicate stitch them (never did that before - again, youtube is a great resource) and then resorted to crochet/embroider them on. I think it worked out great in the end but needless to say I spent a whole night on one ear trying to perfect them...ahhhh.
The results are worth it though, don't you think?
I have plans to make one for little Miss P in a beige color...she's a pretty cute model! You know, come to think of it, this hat would be pretty cute for Halloween too.
Have a great night!
