A New Year and Dinosaurs

New Release, Tutorials, Updates

It’s a new year already, and it amazes me how much I’ve got done but yet to finish. This past year I’ve managed to start a variety of patters but all but one is still in the works. They all are close to being done but something has kept me from managing to complete them. This year I hope to change that and I think I have started out on a good foot thanks to dinosaurs and cold weather.

The wee girl does not like to dress for the weather. Even when it’s cold and she’s shivering she will still flat out refuse to wear coats, hats, socks, etc. As an attempt to entice her into dressing warmer I thought I’d make sure it was stuff she’d want to wear. First I tried getting her into a hoodie by turning it into a dinosaur hoodie. I used this tutorial from Ginger & George. It works sometimes, like when she wants to go rawring and stomping around in it.

Then I tried I knitted her a hat, a dinosaur hat at no less. Well at lest she will wear the hat.

The pattern turned out super cute so I decided to release it. This is my first knitting pattern and with that and I’m a left handed knitter I learned tons!  Julie from Feather Press Knits has been and continues to be a huge help. The Dinosaur Hat is available on both Etsy and Ravelry.
