If you recall I had frogged a beanie that had started to unravel after drying it. I decided to add it to my new triangle shawl I had started. It added another 5 rows after I finished adding the beanie. I decided to call it the Heart of Pink Skrappy Shawl. I have not worked on it since. I have not decided what scrap yarn to add next.
I spent the rest of the weekend making hats for my grandsons. I wanted to get a new Santa Hat made for Marty, he out grew the first one it can be passed on to his little brother Connor this year. I did not alter the pattern this time. I followed the instructions for the small-sized hat. I made the brim 18 inches. I stretched it out before I seamed the ends together to 21 inches. It should fit him for quite a few years.

I wanted Connor to have different hats from his older brother Marty. This was a design I improvised in two previous adult beanies so it was pretty simple to alter it for a baby beanie.
