I had to make a quick change to the helmet beanie my littlest gave his friend - first he wanted a nose bridge thingey (didn't work out), then I convinced him of a visor/mouthguard combo, which was happily accepted:
|Little Boy S is armed and ready|
I used a lovely mottled grey pure merino DK from I Love Yarn, used a basic beanie pattern and improvised the front, the back, the guard...most everything!
And then there was another birthday, a Dr Seuss-party and a two year-old, who got a Cat in the Hat
hat lopsided beanie. I had an evening and wasn't going to sit up all night, so almost immediately abandoned my plans of a tall, slouchy beanie-hat, and it became... a cone. But he loved it!
|Ginger E almost went to sleep with this one on|
So I was ready to take up the heritage Blanket again, that's been thrust to the back of the cupboard for too long...and then got diverted by a friend's pregnancy, and oooh, a favourite waitress also has a baby coming...what the heck. Let me do baby blankets then!
Here's the first one, and I should complete it soon as there's a 1600 km road trip waiting today and tomorrow. Lots of hooky time on the N1 South!

I'm not that crazy about the V-stitch, but it has to go quick, grow fast, be cool (summer in Pretoria) (which is also why I decided on the cotton/bamboo yarns).
Off I go, the yarn is packed but nothing else!
