Pixie hats are so darn cute! I just finished Sweetpea's Pixie Hood from the book Baby Beanies: Happy Hats to Knit for Little Heads. The pattern recommends Malabrigo Merino Worsted yarn and this is what I used for the main colour. The yarn was great to work with and is so soft. If it weren't so pricey I'd be going back for more.
I'm still working on some of the books from last week but I've added a few more to the mix. I borrowed a couple canning and preserving books Put 'em Up! and Jam It, Pickle It, Cure It from the library. I have grande ambitions to attempt some Three Citrus Marmalade this weekend. I'm also reading The Barefoot Book: 50 Great Reasons to Kick Off Your Shoes and seriously contemplating barefoot running.
