Yesterday (Jan 26) was Australia Day, and like good little Aussies, we went and had a barbie with friends and then headed off to see the fireworks. I had made the kids little hats (with cotton and gold or silver held together and 8mm needles) because green and gold are "our colors". Of course, it was a bit dark at the fireworks to see colors anyway, but they were still cute Ü
Grumpy did not feel like smiling, but he's cute nevertheless.
These were the quickest little hats ever. Jasmine's is just garter stitch in green cotton and gold yarn. I had to add a bit of yellow and gold ribbing because it was a bit small. Byron's started off as the Yarn Harlot's one row handspun scarf. But I got tired of it, and decided that a scarf in Summer was a bit odd. So I picked up three triangles on the top and made a hat. His is green and yellow cotton and silver thread. Silver is not technically an Australia Day color, but who really cares?
It sparkled a bit under the fireworks. Ü
