Just more than a week ago
daughter lost the (real) Peru baby hat
her youngest son was wearing
while they were doing some shopping in the local mall.
We asked several times if it was found
without success ...
(so the little one was wearing a slightly too big hat, I had knitted for his mom ages ago)
That left me no alternative than to grab my needles
and some leftover yarn in various colours,
draw some patterns of little man,
and make a gauge swatch.
... and I started knitting ...
... and knitting ...
(ha, there hád to be a little white dog somewhere ...)
Here's the little elf himself
(with mom's heavenly blue Malabrigo shawlette)
We think he looks very cute
(though we 're not sure that he will agree
in ... let's say ... fifteen years ?)
