I knitted 3 more rows on the blue 2×2 rib for the second minion hat today. Only 2 more rows of rib to go…
I finished the main part of the first minion hat today, knitting the black band and the yellow crown:
I also crocheted two mouths, and now I just need to crochet the eyes and sew them on.
My family have been staying with us for the past couple of days, so we’ve been very busy with board games, picking apples, trips to the park, and swimming. I’ve done some knitting in the evenings, knitting 20 more rounds of the minion hat:
Next, I’ll knit the black stripe for the goggle band. I also wound some of my lovely new Cascade 220 yarn into balls, as it arrives in skeins. I wound the pink, white and tan ones, 600m of yarn!
Cascade 220 is my favourite yarn to knit kids toys with. It is hard wearing but still soft enough to cuddle, washes well, is easy to knit with, and comes in a huge range of colours.
My new wools arrived today, so I did the first 5 rounds for another Christmas project, a pair of Minion Hats for my nephews.i did the first 5 rounds of rib, but can’t share a photo as I left it at work.
