Iwona made a version of this hat for Charlie and it’s so darn cute on him.  She says she likes how it fits over his ears.  You can find the pattern HERE for 2.50GBP


Christmas Toadstools by Merrin Curley

These would make wonderful ornaments, the red caps adding a colourful pop to the evergreen tree!

Sure do hope this last week till Christmas, is full of knit success! Remember to pick out your Holiday-Knitting Project Too! Once all the madness of knitting for others is accomplished, you will no doubt want to kick back with some eggnog and do some knitting meant for the knitter.  You deserve it!
