Birthday Knits

My girl Nikki turned 20 today, and requested a floppy mustard yellow hat. I bought this yarn at Unique Thrift over the summer, it is Lopi! Imagine that.

As I said, it is super floppy.

My girl Christina turns 20 in a few days as well, so I knit her this scarf lengthwise using leftover yarn. I crocheted ruffles into the purl bumps.

I like it, I hope to make more of them soon.

I know I said before that I hate Berocco Gem, and I still kind of do. Once you drop a stitch with that yarn, you have a split second before the whole thing unravels in knots at your feet. I had a vision for a triangular scarf, so I improvised with this little scarf.

When I finished it, I realized it belonged to my friend Ana.

…She’ll rock it with one of the pins my mother forced upon her.

More stuff soon!

Also,

Christine McVie rules.
