some knitting is getting done between life and gardening!
the little anchor hat is a gift for one of nate's friends. i sure hope they enjoy it! the hat itself is simple as can be, but the embroidery took some time. i drew out the anchor on some regular old computer paper, pinned it in place, and used it as a template for the embroidery. all in all i think it turned out well, but next time i think i'll be using some thinner paper! picking the tiny paper bits out of the stitches proved exhausting!.... though, it may also have something to do with the fact that i constructed the entire thing from start to finish in one sitting! LOL
the booties and bonnet are for miss lauren's baby shower. oh how i love making gifts for little girls!
