pixies and fairs

newborn pixie and solstice sweater
i finished up that baby sweater i've been showing off! (ravelry link here, and lots more ravelry links to follow). and i will show you a finer picture of it modeled in not too long. in the meantime, i also knit this little newborn pixie hat, modeled by the rocking horse.
golden pixie hood
this reminded me that i wanted to knit colden that stella pixie hat. but even more, i remembered all of waldorf mama's gorgeous gnomey hats. i love this even more - it is a scarf and hat in one. plus, it is easy for him to put on himself, with no ties to mess with. the pattern was not too far off the newborn version i just made. i used blue sky alpaca's silk/alpaca blend, which was a dream. it is perfectly soft for a child and such a close fitting hat. it is terribly cute with the knit hoodie.
otter and decaf
i had a wonderful time at the craft fair, and sold two of everything, just about. isn't that funny? i also made (and sold) a last minute otter. i've made another one of those and i'm crafting away for the upcoming cedarwood faire this weekend. saturday, december 4th, 10 am - 4 pm, cedarwood waldorf school 3030 sw 2nd avenue, portland oregon 97201.
