The very first time I saw a picture of Jess Hutch's Robot pattern, I knew I had to make it for Alaina. Though it was late for her birthday this year, I did manage to finish it in time for she and Anil to come and visit us a couple of weeks ago. She liked it -- and we were so happy to so them!
It was bitterly cold the weekend they visited, and since the've just moved back to the East Coast Anil did not have a good enough hat. I grabbed some leftover worsted-weight yarn, and did what I could to rectify that situation. By the time they left for New York at the end of the weekend, they had a pair of handknits to take with them.
