This is The Boo pattern from Mochimochi Land (http://mochimochiland.com/shop/boo-pattern/). It is a really quick knit and I made her in a night. I haven’t added the button that the pattern has yet and I am thinking of making another one trying out the other wing pattern. I am really bad at embroidering so my attempt at the teeth turned into a side quirky smile and will stay that way. I really like the loops for the feet and I currently have her hanging off a shelf above my bed.

Valentine’s Day Present for Someone Special

This is the wonderful hat I made for my boy friend for Valentine’s Day. The pattern I used was called Greer (http://us.schachenmayr.com/patterns/greer) which I altered a little bit. I wanted to add in the forth color along with change the top  a little bit. I ended up doing the top three times. First I tried following the patter which was just 2 rows of k2tog and then tried a little less aggressive method of decreasing. Since decreasing the hat that fast made it fit a lot smaller I had to take it out again to I could decrease 8 times a round with a row of straight knits so that it would fit on my boy friend’s head.

I personally love the colors but no one else I have shown has really shown any enthusiasm for the hat so maybe one of you will enjoy it! I am an obnoxious person and sometimes like obnoxious colors! The yarn was the same suggested in the Greer pattern, Boston by Schachenmayr (http://us.schachenmayr.com/yarns/boston).
