Extra Special

I’ve got two more finished objects for Bug’s handknit Christmas, and each of them are extra special. In the sense that besides being hand knit, they’ve got an extra touch from someone else special in Bug’s life.

The first is her shroom hat, downsized to accommodate thinner yarn than the pattern calls for. Its extra special touch is the yarn itself, which was spun by Marja. It’s a wonderful purple and pink and blue toned yarn, and that’s a color combo Miss Bug truly appreciates.

The second item is her tunic. I’ve been working on this for some time now, and it turned out fantastic. The pattern is Bulle, and I knit the largest size, and then added extra length since Miss Bug is quite tall. In addition to that, I messed up the yoke itself, so it doesn’t quite look like it is supposed to, and I was too lazy to do the pockets.

Its extra special touch is the buttons. They’ve been hanging around in my button stash for a few years now, because they were made by my mother, and I wanted an extra special project to put them on. This was the project.

And now, I get to wrap a few more gifts to set under the tree. Happy Thanksgiving everyone, I do hope you are enjoying it.
