And since a blog post should always have at least one photo, I thought I'd show you what I have been up to lately.
I knitted both Luc and Patric new hats. Patric's was black, gray and white and he took it home before I remembered that I should have taken a photo of it. Luc's hat is the one on the left. I started it before he went home but didn't get it finished in time. It will be mailed to him shortly, now that Canada Post is back to work. The twins got new hats too. Severn decided one day last spring that she should throw her hat into the tiger cage at the zoo. I had knitted that hat and apparently, it was her favourite. Her new hat is the one on the right and Mackenzie's is the middle one. I let them choose their own yarn.
This is the yarn I used for all four hats. I like the variegated yarns and colours and also the fact that it has 25% wool content. The yarn is machine washable too. I still have at least one more hat to knit and I was thinking I could/should make a couple more just to keep on hand in case the little ones need a hat. With the pattern being a rib, it makes the hat stretchy and can fit several head sizes.
