My younger daughter, 6, asked me if I could teach her to knit today. Here are her very first rows, in her favorite color.

Aged Stash WIP

Starter this bottom up pullover last night with some Mountain Colors River Twist I've had since 2010. Sized to fit elder kid, I hope. Striping in leftovers from her hat on the body.

Aged Stash Project - Buttonhead

My daughter wanted a hat covered in buttons after going through the button bag to find a closure for her Helium shrug. She choose an assortment of buttons with a shank that I could thread on to the yarn before knitting. I worked from both ends of a center pull ball, with the buttons threaded on the center pull end. Brim and most of the body were knit from the outside end. Every few rows I would work from the center end and place a few buttons.

Pattern is based on Handy Book of Patterns basic hat. Yarn is from the deep stash, a skein of Plymouth super wash merino left over from a sweater project.
