Finished: orchids & fairy lights

I have been wanting to make this hat for a long time.  I can't recall when I actually bought the pattern, but I do know it took me at least two or three false starts before I made it anywhere. The pattern, by tiny owl knits, isn't exactly "hard" but it is really tedious and you have to be aware of where you are constantly.  I would say this is one for a quiet spot, with no distractions.  I was "given" a stroke of luck as I woke up one morning around 3 am, restless and awake... I spent the next 5 hours in a comfy chair finishing it up! 

I think before this year is over I should attempt to adapt the Meow Mitts into replicas of Charlie and Alex...yes/yes?!

  2. Your orchids/fairylights looks awesome!!
    I made one a few months ago and it took so much longer than it should have...

    (i deleted previous comment because I apparently forgot english for a minute.)

  3. OH! If you're kitty mittens turn out well, can I commission you to make me some with little grey babies on them??
