She commented on a grey bonnet and pant set, but that was custom dyed yarn and I wasn't planning to dye anymore. I told her I had a little grey bonnet already done (small fib--it just needed the ties), and she liked it.
I can't believe I had this sitting in my drawer for soooo long, and all it needed were the ties!
The yarn has a nice texture to it, and pink and blue slubs. I have no clue what the yarn is, I think it was a thrift store find. This hat weighs in at 23gr.
grey one I did for Jenna Faye Photography. The gray was cream Patons "Lace" that I dyed. I sent her a photo of it, plus another no-name ball of fuzzier cream yarn. She picked the fuzzier cream one. As soon as I started knitting with it, I realized it wasn't really all that soft. Once it was done, I turned the items inside out, and with small scissors, cut off all the halo on the inside. Then I soaked it over night in hair conditioner. Much softer now, but it's still not the softest thing I've made. The set weighs in at 74gr.
She also wanted a brown mohair bonnet. I did not have any brown mohair! I tried blending a few yarns together, but it didn't have that "aaahhh" factor. So I did one up in Patons "Divine". I love this yarn. I don't know why they discontinued it!
We were going out, and to a store just two doors down from Soper Creek Yarn...so of course I took advantaged and stopped in to look for finer brown mohair. I found a basket of Nashua "Creative Focus Kid Mohair", and that was the only brown mohair in stock. A little thicker than I would have liked, but very soft.
So nice making quick baby items again!
