One of the brokers I work for just had a baby girl.  Since he and his wife are such a quirky bunch, I made something awesome that they can definitely appreciate.



It's made for a girl.  I should name that fish...I'll just leave the honors for the daddy.  I was told MacKenzie (that's the baby's name) have a huge head like her daddy.  So I said I'll make it to fit up to a 2 year old.  He was like "oh totally, she'll probably wear that in a month."  I met the beautiful baby...she's TINY!  I told him the best thing to do is to have the fish eat her from the bottom up and make it into a bunting thing (whatver they are called).

Here's my co-worker trying on the hat.  It somewhat fits him!!!!



The yarns I've used is:

Pink:  Stitch Nation Washable Ewe in Zinnia
Green: Spud and Chloe Sweater in Grass
Purple: Stitch Nation Alpaca Love in Dusk

I'll post a picture of MacKenzie wearing it when I get a picture!

I just love the knit Dead Fish Hats.  I made one last summer for my sister and one for myself last month.  They are are so fun to make.  Yours looks good, I like the color combo you used too.

-I give up on making TOL pendants.  If anyone would like to have my stone chips, wire and ect.  I would gladly trade it all for some knitting/crochet stuff.

-Currently crafting.....A Weasley blanket.  I'd love some squares made from fellow Craftsters.
