one more gift

 One more gift completed last night. Time is running out for knitted items. I have one more gift still on the needles and a couple more to make on the knitting machine and that will probably be all I have time for. Some time between knitting and work I need to get my tree up. Today is my first day off in 5 days and I'm kinda pooped. I got my house work and laundry out of the way first thing this morning and will start washing all the hand knits and laying them out over night to dry. There is quite a pile. Once dry each will be put in a gift box and wrapped. All will be sorted and put into shipping boxes to be sent out by Monday. Well that's my plan anyway.

The Pac Man hat is for someone that is hard to make or purchase gifts for. There are a few of those on my list. Not sure how this was going to turn out I was relieved after I finished knitting the little red ghosts. Now I want one too haha. In fact everyone that sees it wants one. I got the pattern free on ravelry. I believe it's written in French. I used the google translator which doesn't translate knitting terms  very well so there is a lot of guessing involved, but there is a chart which is basically what I followed. I used acrylic yarn because the person I'm making this gift for like to put stuff in the washer and dry.. Yikes.. so the yarn I used is Lion Brand Vanna's choice on a size US 7 needle. I think the sizing is perfect. Hope he likes it.
