A couple of weeks ago, it was Jenny's birthday (Hi, Jenny!) As you know, she's my BFF (since we were young enough to say "BFF" for reals!) and I made her some stuff.
First up, these fun earrings that I made out of Scrabble tiles -- her initials are JN. I've never tried this before and I think they came out great (if I do say so myself):
I need to make some of those for ME! I have a ton of Scrabble tiles waiting for more crafty fun.
She lives in the wintry North, so I also made her some hats. First up, a wool cap from lovely Malabrigo. It's so soft, it's like knitting with kittens! (Unfortunately, I believe it will start to pill dramatically before too long... alas, the downside of soft wool...)
I still don't have a head model, so I used a balloon for these photos:
I made her yet another hat in the football team colors of our hometown, where our friendship was first forged: Go, Browns!
(I gotta say here that she wore that hat to the Browns game yesterday and they totally WON in a very exciting overtime! I'm pretty sure it was the hat.)
She seemed pleased with the gifts, although she mentioned that her 4 year old son has claimed the hats... so it looks like I've got some more hat making to do in my near future!
