My latest photo prop is this lion hat:
|Again, I must ask you to pardon my "baby".|
It seems almost natural that Lion Brand would make yarn fit for a lion, no?
I've nearly completed the accompanying diaper cover - also adorable because I get to atach a tail with more fringe! Perhaps I'll have a photo of the whole set to show you after the weekend.
In other news, I'm asking you to feel bad for me. I had a sinking feeling that the other hats I'd created for this order will too big, despite measuring accurately (or so I thought). Far too late, I remembered I had a bunch of white balloons left over from pervious baby hat photo shoots, so I blew one up to the size of a newborn's head... and the balloon was swimming. What the heck?
So the bad news is I have to start over with the other orders. The good news is that they're so tiny, they're whipping up quickly. Last night, I finished the bases of my new owl hat (ear flaps and all) and managed to save the eyes from Owl #1. I'm almost done with the base of of the new teddy bear hat and I think I can save the bumble bee. Wish me luck!
Have you ever had to rip something out and start over long after you'd already finished a project? Did you hate the universe as much I did when you discovered you had to go back to square one?
