AWESOME planetarium! I wish oatmeal came in containers like that up here! Maybe I could do up a hot chocolate can, and save lids to do different constellations? A little LED puck push-light would fit in there...
So I just finished something that wasn't even going to be an HPC project, but let me tell you, it definitely fits!
My daughter needs warm hats, as it's already fall here (though someone forgot to inform the weather) and it will be getting cold soon. It's already cold at night and in the morning, if the afternoons are hot! I made her the sheepish hat, but I wanted to make a few more so we have options. I tried out a few things that failed miserably, when I decided to reproduce the pigtail hat I made for my little cousin 8 years ago.
BEHOLD, THE PIGTAIL HAT (AKA Cabbage Patch hat, as coined by my husband):
Project Name: Pigtail Hat, AKA Cabbage Patch
As soon as we pulled it on her head, we laughed out loud at how it looked! Literally, ridiculously cute. I put the picture up on facebook, and it got a crazy number of likes, and everyone thinks it's hilarious. Definitely a cheering charm!
In fact, it got so many likes I'm wondering if I should write up the pattern to sell for a couple bucks on etsy. It's dead simple, but there are an awful lot of dead simple patterns for sale, and I'd hate to deny anyone the chance to knit this crazy hat! Definitely only for 2-3 bucks though.
