Finished Family Knits

 These have both been done for a while, so it's probably about time that I talk about them here! Anemone had requested a Portsmouth hat of her own back in September (eep!) and Mum mentioned that she'd like a Kermit (skinny version) of her own a couple of months ago as well, so I made an effort to finally crank these out.

I laughed a bit when I brought Anemone yarn shopping and she picked the same colorway as my Portsmouth sample. I think this skein is a little bit brighter than mine, but otherwise the two hats are identical. I banged this out in two days, and had it ready to give to her when I was in the city last weekend.

The skinny Kermit for Mum was also a really quick knit-not quite two days, but in less than a week of carrying it around it was ready for blocking, and she's already worn it several times. I love this green so much, and it's a spectacular color on her as well.

  1. Obviously you both have great taste in yarn. What beautiful knits. You inspire me with your cranking out of gorgeous knitting.

  2. beautiful knits and there is nothing like a request for a hand knit from a family member. Unless it's a big big neverending knit...
