FO Friday 50: Small Things











The final Friday of the summer holidays ... Destructo Boy is fully kitted out for the new school year; Mini Diva ... not so much. I have postponed the purgatory that is uniform shopping for her until tonight, when I can make the suffering joint by including DH in the process. I already did the shoe-shopping without murdering her, so my place in a martyr's heaven is assured.

Since UberCool Brother's Scarf, and the Lilac Vintage Cabled Sweater seem to be such slow movers, instead I finished the hat made with the leftover ball of Robin Picasso Chunky; because of the modifications I made (which included a row of eyelets especially so we could have ribbon), it doesn't look so much like the beret of the pattern, but a rather dinky mob cap kind of thing. Regardless, it fits, all her hair fits in/under it, it'll be lovely and toasty warm in winter, and she looks super-cute in it:








































And the first soap of the new season is out of the molds (custom molds !), an unscented, uncolored Oatmeal, Honey & Goatsmilk that is currently nameless ....


As usual, lots of pretty things to see over at Tami's Amis ....

  3. Cute hat! It's nice to have a little something you can crank out quickly when you're working on a project that's more of a slow cook. Also, the soap looks fabulous!

  6. Love that hat!!!
    You mean, you actually can make your husband go clothes shopping with you for the kids? I think I need to make up for 17 years of doing it alone and send him out alone with 17 and 14 year old daughters. And, make him do the Christmas shopping this year too.

  9. The hat looks great! That's a lot of awesome soap you have right there!! I noticed you said it was un-scented. I have crazy sensitive skin, and can't use scented soaps. If yours works for sensitive skin, I'd love to try a bar. Are you planning on selling it?

  10. I do sell it indeed, Tami :-) It will be ready in about 4 weeks time ... and is fine with sensitive skin :)

  13. I love the chunky-rib texture of that hat, it looks so amazingly cozy. And that soap! It looks gorgeous. Handmade soap is the best thing ever.

  15. Such beautiful soap! I'm a newbie soap maker, and mine doesn't look anywhere near that nice! (well, yet... maybe someday!)

  17. The hat is so sweet! With the ribbon added to the picot details, it has a vintage feel to it, whereas the original didn't. Really charming.
