This is F-Ro’s birthday gift last year, hence my need to keep up the crafty theme. In case you’re wondering, it’s a homemade care bear (or a store-bought one that had a tummy transplant and embroidery-tattoed paws) with chilis, because Francisco and I think it is hilarious that every time big corporations want to make something Hispanic they put a whole bunch of chili peppers on it and then some upside down exclamation points and words like “caliente!” or “ole” (the latter being, as he pointed out, Spanish, and not Mexican or South American.)

In return, he gave me a gong for my birthday.

Here’s F-Ro wearing the first hat I ever knit. I didn’t use a pattern–I just winged it using some number 8 circular needles and sport-weight wool-ease. The top is a little messed up, due to the lack of pattern, but all in all, I think it fits pretty well!
