also, finally got to take some photos of the daisy cutter beret! tyler took this one as we went on a beer run - the karate place nearby just finished a really cool mosaic, which is serving as the background. love this hat - also another great fast-knitting project that would make a fantastic gift for you or someone you love (not that those two categories are mutually exclusive). the pattern will be available through the rotten cupcakes etsy shop - i notice it's not there yet (although i have also knit the twisted thistle beret, and that is also a fantastic pattern!), but i'm sure any day now it will make its appearance.
i made a few mods - ie, omitting the feet (creatures without all their limbs are extra adorable) and knitting the winds flat instead of in the round. the full details on that last one can be found on my ravelry project page. the main yarns i used were some leftovers of malabrigo worsted in vaa (see "daisy cutter", above!) and lorna's laces shepherd worsted in catalpa.
this song is silly, but i did find it running through my mind as i worked on these little guys.
