FO Friday -It’s a girl!

trillium

With the excitement of a new baby close to home, I wasn’t knitting for a far away baby.  It probably helped that far away baby was gender neutral until birth!  Imagine that, some folks still like to be surprised at delivery??  I have horrible impulse control, no way I would have been able to wait that long.

The wait is over…It’s a girl!  Trillium has arrived and she’s beautiful!  I whipped up a quick hat, inspired by her name.

Although, perhaps, it may be a stretch to call a literal representation of something inspiration.  In any case, I didn’t know Trillium was a flower.  Imagine my delight at finding out it’s an easily knit flower!  A Chrysanthemum hat would not have happened!

And then, I had to make something for Trillium’s new big sister!  As a kid, I really loved getting presents on my sister’s birthday.  Presents for everyone.  Who can argue with that?  Plus, new knitting is always more exciting than old knitting.  So big sister got a monster!

Trillium Hat –

The hat is a pattern I concocted myself starting with a picot cast on.  The flower is a free pattern with some modifications.

Blue Monster

This guy is a Rebecca Danger monster.  He’s mostly Lydia or Lucas.  Her designs are super fun to modify.  The options for mixing and matching monster limbs and bodies are endless!  This will not be my last monster.  Stash busting and instant gratification!  Yay!

And now, to prepare for the Ravellenic Games cast on!  I still haven’t fully decided what I’m doing.  Egads!  Time to decide!

  1. Super cute hat and monster! How exciting to have a new baby close by :) All of mine are far, far away and by the time I get to meet them, they are toddlers and never remember me. That is also an adorable kitty photo :D
