Charlie for my Mom

Charlie_Mom_yarn Charlie_Mom_WIP_01

I went to visit my parents in California in November, and while I was there, I took the time to wash and block a few knits, including Fandangle and my blue Charlie. My mom admired both projects and was particularly keen on the yarn I used, Spincycle Dyed in the Wool. I decided to knit her a hat using that yarn for Christmas, and I ended up pairing it with BT Loft and using my Charlie pattern.

I procrastinated starting the hat a bit more than I should have, and I had to knit almost the entire thing in a rush while on a trip to Canada with my family. I needed to get it done in time to wrap it and send it home with my dad to put under their Christmas tree, and I just managed to do it. The dry air made it so I even got the chance to block the hat, but I didn’t get any pictures of it other than these snaps from Instagram. I’m just happy that I finished it in time!
