Knitting Day

Yesterday I spent the entire morning trawling the net looking for knitting pattterns for "Illusion Knits". This is where when you hold the piece of knitting one way it looks fairly plain but when you tilt it at a different angle you can see the pattern knitted into it. Anyway I got totally sidetracked and ended up looking for patterns for baby hats in I had some left over cotton yarn. Many hours and lots of patterns printed out later I did not make the cotton hat as I saw this picture for a cute little beanie with ribbons threaded through the fabric and tied in knots. It looked so cute and I knew I had a large stash of ribbon that would be suitable so the entire afternoon was spent knitting the beanie and putting the ribbons on.
