Barley & Antler: Finished Objects

just reading a pattern when this grotty pumpkin came rolling across my keyboard... 
Back in September I believe, I text my brother to see what color hat I should make Bump for the new winter season.


Bright yellow, so it will be easy to spot him on the playground.
top hat: Cascade 220 Superwash Paints. Bottom Hat: Purl Soho Worsted Twist in Yellow Yellow

This coincided nicely with my mom's jaunt to New York City.
I dashed off a list and directions for her to Purl Soho.
Two weeks later a gorgeous skein of Purl Soho Worsted Twist in Yellow Yellow arrived.

Fast forward a few months.

Christmas in Florida
January 1st was the start of America's Knitting new Knit-A-Long. We are doing all patterns from Tin Can Knits for one month.

Barley was an obvious choice for this yellow yellow yarn. It turned out perfect with plenty left over for a huge pompom on top. It's perfect. It covers his ears to keep him warm and that pom pom is a beacon for mom and dad to spy him quickly running around the playground.

I made another Barley for Baby G.

Then I made an Antler for their dad.  So he to can be warm on the playground...
Antler Hat: Made in Cascade 220 Superwash in Navy.
Antler was super fun to make. Easy cable repeat to make and you can wear it slouchy or fold the brim and have a fitted toque.
Happy Monday!
