For those unaware, Pascha is May 5th, five weeks after Easter! In fact, people on the western calendar are deep in Lent now and we haven’t even started. A very strange feeling indeed! [On a purely selfish note, I’ve enjoyed eating Cadbury Mini-Eggs before Lent…] Truly, the rest of the world will have moved on as we enter the final weeks of Lent and celebrate Pascha.
Keeping this difference in mind, I’ve tried to work on some spring-y, Easter-y hats to send to Calvin’s Hats for them to have in time. Even though I’m not in that frame of mind, I’m trying to have things ready for everyone on the other calendar.
I made the cutest little bunny hat over the last day or so. I improvised the design, but it was so cute and easy that I’m going to try to do it again and write up the pattern, perhaps in a few sizes. I’m not thrilled with how the face turned out, so I may leave the others plain.
And here are the rest of the hats in progress:
|(Calvin’s Hats specifically requested some more of these sun hats. (: )|
|A few bonnets. The little one fits on my thumb.|
|I had fun doing some diamond patterns with purl stitches on these.|
(Obviously I’ve figured out how to make the hats with the knot on top too but I forgot to take individual shots of those…)
