Shedir for Allie-girl

SHEDIR is finally finished for my baby-girl, Allison.  I purchased the yarn for it 13 months ago and it has been in and out of the knitting basket since then.  So, here it is – belated 20th birthday gift, belated 2006 Christmas gift, belated 21st birthday gift.  It wasn’t a difficult pattern once my mind finally got a hold of it but it also was not a very relaxing knit.

Shedir

I used Jaegar Matchmaker DK for the yarn in a color that ALWAYS looks fantastic on my girl.  Hats look much better on her than they do on me.  I’ll have to have her model it when she is home for Christmas.

Allison – the sunshine of our family and the one who can ALWAYS make me feel better when I am sad.  I know she must be a ray of sunshine to all her pediatric patients.

  1. Looks great. I just made a Shedir and, while I like the end result, I also never really got into a good groove making it. Ce la vie. Happy Thanksgiving!

  2. That hat looks fabulous. I haven’t tried that pattern yet. I don’t know if I have the patience for all that! Happy Thanksgiving!

  3. The hat looks great & the pattern looks complicated – no wonder it took you so long. Alison has such a great smile – no wonder she is the sunshine of the family. Happy Thanksgiving to you & your family.

  4. What a beautiful shedir. I was planning on making that for my wee one year old nephew but christmas is a bit too close.

    Have a great thanksgiving.

  5. Great hat. It turned out so good.

    Allison is so pretty. What a wonderful smile.

    Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

  6. It looks wonderful! This might be the kick in the pants I need to finally finish mine — it’s only been on the needles since, oh, February?

  7. Yes she is “Son” shine! It is written all over her.

    Oh, and the hat is nifty too. I have yet to knit one. It is on my to do list.

  8. A gorgeous Shedir – that color is amazing! and Allison is beautiful too – pediatrics ….quite a calling!!!
