A Revamp of the Cupid’s Mix Beanie, Just in Time for Valentine’s Day

A few weeks ago I suddenly realized I had not seen my daughter’s Cupid’s Mix beanie in many months. In angst I up-heaved her room, searched through all my knits and combed the house. The beanie was nowhere.

It goes without saying that a replacement was in order. I quickly contacted Carol of Havirland Yarns and purchased a new Cupid’s Mix set. The old mini skein kit is now a set of 20 mini bobbins, which she has labeled “Cupid’s Mix Frankensocks Kit.” (Her other Frankensocks kits are amazing as well.) My original pattern was designed for the mini skeins, which are approximately 10 grams each. The mini bobbins are 5 grams each, so my pattern could not accommodate them. I fretted at first but then decided to simply revamp the old pattern to include two versions: one for mini skeins (left) and one for mini bobbins (right).

How did she grow so fast??? You’ve got to be kidding me. It’s only been one year.
