Weekend FO 1: BHP#2 - the Precious

Pattern: Foliage by Emilee Mooney
Yarn: Brown Sheep Lamb's Pride Bulky, in Mulberry - most of a skein
Needle: 6.5mm, 5.5mm
Mods: None required. This is a great little pattern and I especially like that it is worked top down because it makes for such a neat bottom edge. I knitted one as part of the first hat project (the last seven rows of which were in this very skein of yarn as my previous skein ran out) and I had forgotten how good it is. It only took me the length of a film.

Two of my girls requested a burgundy hat; this yarn is a bit more purple than I would normally expect burgundy to be, so this one is for the girl who isn't a red-head. She'll get probably the same hat knitted in a browner incarnation. I'm toying with the idea of breaking out my Vogue Lace Stitchionary and coming up with my own version of a lacy chunky hat, but time may well put pay to that idea.

Rocking the 8th wedding anniversary present Chanel sunglasses in the back garden. They deserve a Fave Friday post all to themselves. I was too busy this Friday though, mistiming a squash shot and hitting Tutt on the elbow hard enough to require a trip to Minor Injuries. Not my finest hour.
