This was a week of knitting Aira, testing the pattern for Lily.
Aira by Lily (aged 11), found via her mum's blog here.
I used Mountain Colors Bearfoot sock yarn in Wild Raspberry. Yummy yarn with a touch of mohair in it.
Mine came out a bit loose round the band, despite changing down a needle size to 2.25 and 3.25 needles. But it works with big hair!
It's pretty huge!
None of my pictures of the starfish crown came out well - too much camera shake! Despite the stern faces of the men-folk, we had some laughs with this one.
Success? Well it suits someone!
