Is that a flower?

This past Friday I finished the Flore hat I used caron simply soft brites. lilac, grape and lime. I like how it turned out but of course b/c I finished it it's now 70 out side.
but hey it should fit her next year. I really liked this pattern it was quick to knit though I think the next time I make it I'll make a little more space btwn the levels and try to figure out how to fix the bottoms so they don't roll so much. but I'm not sure I know they made the pattern this way for a reason so I don't want to mess with it. but I seem to always have to tweak patterns to my liking. doesn't everyone though?
the pix were rather hard to take and I had to chase the booty around to take them. She wouldn't stand still. But hey that's what happens with toddlers. But such a cutie!
I've also started and restarted my sockapaloooza socks. First I started using the wyvern pattern but it wasn't POPing like I wanted so I ripped it out and restarted the Pomatomus pattern. I'm liking the results so far. When I get future I'll take a pix and show Ya'll.... Until then. KNIT ON!
