A Quick Hit

I finished a few things - first, Bo's cat-ear hat.

He wanted it black, of course, and with ears that were bigger than normal. So I added five stitches to the ears when I started them. It made them bigger than normal, but I dunno if they're as big as he wants. Just for comparison, I put the one I made for myself on top of it. You'd be surprised how little difference five stitches makes.

I also made it out of wool, because I worry about people having cold noggins. I really think it came out well - it's the third I've made, so I guess I'm getting good at it. I hope he likes it. I haven't shipped it yet, I should do that...anyway, I also whipped up a couple quick wristbands, because they're so fun!

They only take like forty-five minutes to makes, I'm going to have to have one to go with every outfit. Thanks to Star for the awesome free pattern:

You know I love free patterns.
