And the Winner is...

I had four different people leave a comment in my Reusable Giftwrap Tutorial post. I used an online random number generator and got the following result:

2: Regina, you won. I will contact you shortly for your mailing info.


I plan to do more giveaways in the future. It will mostly be stuff I made. I also intend to get stuff up in my Etsy Store but that will be a slower venture.

What I made:

I finally fell into the Noro trap. Noro desreves it's own blog post (probably tomorrow) I found this lovely yarn (Noro Silk Garden) and knit up this Half-Pipe Hat by Debbie Stoller (all ravelry links). Another mom in my knitting group made one for her son and I loved the way hers looked (i.e. not girlie at all).

I didn't need to adjust for a smaller head, but I did knit the stockinette part for two inches rather than one. It seemed really short otherwise. I also did my decreases a little differently so I wouldn't get a spiral.

Nothing says "manly" like silk and mohair right? Right??? Well I think it looks nice on him. He wore it yesterday with a hooded sweatshirt and looked just like a teenager. Except for the silk...

...and mohair.
