Introducing Peppy the Penguin!
I knitted this guy up just before Christmas using #6 needles and some yarn in my stash. He came out taller than I expected at almost 7 inches, but was worth the effort. My favorite feature is the little feet that allow him to stand on his own.

Browsing through Pinterest one day, I came across these adorable finger moustaches and my daughter wanted one. Since I rarely knit for my own family, other than dishcloths, how could I say no to this little project.

My friend’s son is obsessed with all things Mario. She asked me to knit up this cute mushroom for him. Since I am always looking for something to knit, I quickly jumped at the chance.

While the box of items for Craft Hope has left the house. I still have several items to share with you. Today’s project is the Circle Chain Hat by Megan Poteete – Johnson.
I found this pattern on Ravelry. So after I had completed my goal of twelve hats, I knew I wanted to try something a little more than your basic hat. This hat knitted up fairly quickly and the band of circles in a contrasting color made it a little special. I used more of my Red Heart Super Saver Yarn from my stash. The hat was a little small, based on my gauge it should fit the average 8-year-old. But was a little tight on my foam hat head.
If you would like to knit this yourself the pattern can be found for free here.
I know I have been awol lately. I just can’t seem to get in the grove of life.
But I do have a project to share with you.
The pattern is another one from Stana’s Critters. You may remember the Teddy Blanket and the Puppy Blanket that I made using her patterns. For this project you will need two different colors of yarn.
