Happy Halloween!

I finished the skull cap just in time for Halloween! But – there’s one problem… it’s too small 😦 I mean it fits, if I force it over my nearly-3-year-old’s head AND if I make him stay completely still. HAH, not very practical. Oh well, it’s going to look completely adorable on my dear friend Marisa’s (from QuiltOtaku) little baby boy and I have plenty of yarn to make more. It’s such a quick knit. I just might be able to make a new one for my son by tomorrow. I’m going to double the yarn so that it’s slightly larger and add in a few rows for some extra length so that it keeps his ears toasty warm.

I finished it just in time to show it off at Green Planet Yarn‘s Show & Tell night. I’m crossing my fingers that I win a luscious yarny door prize!! I could really use a luxurious yarn fix 🙂

Yarn: Shephard’s Wool – very soft and stretchy
Pattern: Skull hat, picked up at Stitches West earlier this year. It runs small, I’ll be adding rows, stitches and doubling up my yarn to make this a roomier hat.
