On Easter my DIL and I were chatting and she told me funny story (she didn't think it was funny, lol). She was shopping with her 2 little girls and the youngest, 2 1/2 yrs old spotted a Princess Elsa nightgown. Well, she had to have it! After some pleading and puppy dog eyes and the like DIL decided to give in since they need new pj's anyway. Well she asked the older daughter if she would like some Princess Elsa pj's since she loves the movie too. Oh no! She spotted some TMNT pj's IN THE BOY'S DEPT and had to have them! ! Now, mind you, she has never seen these cartoon characters anywhere that DIL knows of! Long story short, after trying to convince her little girl that wouldn't she like some girl pj's? No, she wanted the TMNT pj's! So, that's what she got, little boy pj's. Why don't they make them for little girls? After searching for patterns after hearing about this I've found many little girls that love those guys, but they don't make any girl related items. Hmm, so, sorry I'm so long winded, but I thought it was cute and funny that she would love something that her daddy loved so much when he was a little boy. I got a call late Saturday afternoon that they would be visiting Sunday morning for Mother's Day, so I fired up my hooks and made them each a hat! Yes, they were each a big hit!!! Score one for Grammy! I used Bernat Great Value yarn-kelly green, RHSS-soft white and black, and Caron One Pound-orange. I made the child's size following he directions, but it came out way too big the first time. I ended up omitting rnd 5, but I would suggest going down a hook size. you can find he pattern here.
Finally, ready to block, tie off on back, and do edging. can't decide whether to do charcoal grey or pick a color from it. He is so excited to get it and I am very pleased with how it has turned out. It has been very difficult. At times I had as many as 26 bobbins in a row I was working with.
