A little extra gift
I made this little hat with Pacman pattern for our nephew Thorbjørn, who's 6 years old.
It's knitted in Navia Duo in black and white, and the green bit is Cascade. The pattern is from here, and it didn't take long to make something which can warm our nephew's ears.
The fact that I started 2 days before Christmas Eve mattered on the (for me) fast tempo as well. Something which I tend to do far too often...the starting late bit, I mean.
As far as we have heard, the hat has been approved by it's new owner. That is the most tricky part by knitting for children (do they love or hate it?) - and the most rewarding part if it turns out to be a success.
Now I'm knitting this for Thorbjørn's bigsister Johanne. I haven't told her that I'm making it, so I hope that all the purple hearts will please her.
