New on MagKnits: Sandia!

My little friend Boaz is modeling my newest pattern on MagKnits.
Boaz is too cute
It’s called Sandia: a sun hat for kids knit out of cotton-modal with a brim to keep little noses from burning.

Melissa and I had the pleasure of babysitting for him last night while his moms were off seeing Lily Tomlin. Boaz is in a bus phase, so we spent two hours riding the shulttle all over campus, getting off to ramble and poke about. When we lay down with him at bed time, he prattled on about buses for a while, until I started singing him a quiet series of off-the-top-of-my-head bus songs. At one point I thought he’d fallen asleep and let my singing trail off—when suddenly he popped right up and announced “Headlights! Engine! Door! Bus Driver!” So I went back to my singing until he really was asleep.

  1. Delicious little hat! Going to download it from Magknits. =o)

    I found some of the soywool at Michaels. The stocker didn’t know it was there but she opened her eyes wide and ooooo’d and ahhhhhh’d right along with me when we found it. Thanks for the tip! And the newest pattern!

  2. OK so that is the cutest hat ever! I’m off to order yarn to whip one up for my new little niece!

    Just totally adorable!

    Had to let you know!

  3. I love this hat, but before I could print it Magknits closed down. Does anyone know where I can find this pattern? I’m desperate! 🙂

  4. Hi there, some of us are still waiting for your Sandia pattern. Are you able to post it? I would love to make this hat from your pattern.
