The little pink bunny hat is proving to be a hoot, not to mention a holler.
I achieved closure on the body last night at some ridiculous hour. While preparing to photograph it lying flat, I realized that the perfect baby hat model was close at hand.
As you can see by the expression on Victoria's face, she was not entirely pleased at being pressed into service. However, when C commented that it makes her look years younger, her disposition improved markedly.
And no, the resemblance to Darth Vader's helmet has not escaped me.
I'm trying to learn something new with every project, and this one has short row shaping and I-cord, both of which are marvelous fun.
I confess it did take me three tries to finally puzzle out exactly what one needs to do to make the I-cord. I'm not sure if this means I'm not enough of an idiot, or way too much of one. The latter, I fear. It would explain a lot.
