Yes, I made a Summer Toque

June 7, 2013

Sockhead hatHaving a lightweight summer toque doesn’t make much sense does it?  Summer is supposed to be hot, t-shirts, short skirts, sandals.  Well, welcome to Calgary everyone.  I’ve worn this hat 6 times already in the morning, and had shorts on in the afternoon.  The Socks that Rock yarn in Moonstone colourway is very pretty and shiny, and totally not practical for socks.  The sock yarn without any nylon has a nasty habit of getting holes in the first sock before you finish the second one.  But as accessories, hats, mittens, gloves, baby items it shines.  Fia seemed to like it as she stole it quickly and wore it around for one of our walks.  It kept falling down over her face, wee little munchkin.  I think I need to make her another one but smaller, and the hubby said he might like a simple hat like this.  And with the leftovers:

Blue baby bootiesA little family of baby booties!  I gave these away last week in Winnipeg to some colleagues that are expecting.  The colour worked out well since it turned out one would be a little girl, and one would be a little boy.  I happen to think the colour works well for both!
