a little elf

I could not resist the sweet elf hat in More Last-Minute Knitted Gifts after seeing it. A quick easy project that will helpfully hurdle me onward to finishing the larger one that I have on the needles.

I knit this up in Debbie Bliss Como which is a nice blend of merino and cashmere. I was happy to use this yarn from my stash because it so sweet to knit with and really soft. I was almost done knitting when I realized it was too big so I actually knit this twice yesterday. Ms. S wore it all morning. I love the flower she is touching in this photo. I don't know the proper name of it but, I remember it saying 'vanilla spoon' on the tag.

Cute. It would look like a little gnome hat in red. I think the flower is a cape daisy.
