Pompom Bear Hat and Bracelets for Japan
I had some malabrigo from a friendly yarn swap a few years back. Katherine, I think you sent me the malabrigo that I knitted up into the baby hat. Pompom Bear hat is from BABY BEANIES Book by Amanda Keeys. Super simple knit, but it hurt my wrists......
Karen and Carol, here in town, are making lovely beaded bracelets and donating the proceeds to Japan's relief fund. They are asking for a 15 dollar donation. I asked for all blue beads, but they have many others if you wish. Email Karen at her blog: Knittraps.blogspot.com if you wish to order one. I asked for the cross bead in the center of mine, but there are other options.
Here's a little Friday link love for you!
awesome knit blog with cute patterns

It is made to drape around your shoulders. I must knit this.
The TOAST pattern came from this great site
