“For YOU created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made, Psalm 139:13

I just wanted to share with you this little hat I made for my son Alex. Its a very simple hat with a very cute little face : ) I did google elmo and knitting hoping I could find something that he would like and I think I hit it right on. At first when I made it I wondered if he would know what it was. Joke was on me. He seen it and got really excited so I figure he knew who it was.

Watching Elmo with his Elmo hat on!
(self explanatory, right?)

All it is, is a simple e-wrap hat in red (I used red heart, even though not my favorite yarn) I had to work with the eyes and nose to make them look right. I made that little nose twice. And even though they have a million different shades of everything, apparently orange is just something no body cares about. I am still not that happy with the shade of orange I ended up having to go with, but it works. The eyes are simple white balls with a piece of black felt glued (fabric glue) in the middle for eyeballs. At first I had been going to try to sew black circles on, but that didn't work.

(ignore his little dirty shirt : )
All in all I think it turned out pretty good for my first try. I am thinking about making a cookie monster hat next, but we will see.
