I finished crocheting "Pixie Hood" for one of my granddaughters. I recently found out she has a fascination for hats so I've started making some for her for Christmas. I made this with a yarn I've never used before - reflective yarn. Those white splotches reflect light and there's kind of a glow in the dark effect. What fun. And woe is me... I had to try and try again in order to get that front section of the hood right. Those were some new-to-me stitches.
When I showed the granddaughters this book this is the one I expected Isabelle to pick as a favorite and she did. A "Pixie Hoood" is totally Isabelle. At age 11 she dresses in a rather Bohemian (artsy-fartsy) way. And I think that's a good thing. She already has her own style and is not preoccupied with brand names.
And since I've finished this pixie hood I'm going to start another hat today.
I work a few rounds of crochet...

and Monday I'm linking with:
