Upside-down daisy hat

Pattern: upside-down daisy hat, Knit It! Spring 2007 and Itty-Bitty Hats
Yarn: Debbie Bliss Cashmerino aran
Needles: Addi Turbo size7 16" and SB quicksilver dpn size7
Cast on: August 3 Cast off: August 4 finishing: August 5

This pattern was so much fun. In between installing four new light fixtures, installing a new thermostat, rebuilding a door frame, grocery shopping, and school clothes shopping for five boys, I managed to knit up a baby hat for a college roommate that is pregnant with her second daughter. There was so much left over, that I will knit up another hat next weekend. That one with a white hat with pink flower. The Addi Turbos rocked! I didn't think that they would really make any difference, but they did. I would have to say they are nothing short of amazing. I transfered them onto the SB Quicksilvers and it felt like I was knitting with chalk.

Every time I see that tiny flower hat I crack up - it is so cute!! and you gotta love a 3 day start to finish project!
I'm glad you got the pattern... I will look forward to seeing a picture of your plexiglass blockers!(You really don't need to send me any, but it is very thoughtful of you to offer - Dave says you should use the postage money you'll save for a 6 pack of Alaskan Amber - I say you should use it for more yarn!)
