Well, after a few days of frustration with WordPress, it looks like I can insert photos again. We get so used to instant gratification these days that it is actually kind of nice to take a break from the constant digital connections sometimes.
However, I did want to show you the plethora of baby hats I’ve been working on. In total, I whipped up 8 Magic Coffee Baby hats in 11 days, while the Rainbow Marley (from a previous post) took me 2 weeks, on and off, because I found it so boring.
2 of the Magic Coffee hats aren’t pictured because the mama-to-be had her baby shower last week and I wanted them to arrive in Minnesota on time (they did!). I sent 2 more off today, but I plan to make a few more items for the last mom on my list before I send her hats to her. I have two left over that I’ll probably donate.
There are some scraps left over, but I think instead of more hats right now, I’ll put them in my bear yarn stash.
And….. in bigger news, last night at Knit Night I finished my French Toast sweater! It fits great, although I wouldn’t mind if it relaxed slightly from blocking. I soaked it in Eucalan and now it’s lying flat while I think about evaporation. I’ll get a better photo when I can.
Now that the sweater is done, I have wound the yarn for my husband’s requested socks, and I’m trying to figure out if I have the right yarn for a hat to squeeze into the last few days of Cablepalooza. I have my eye on the pattern Hermione Hearts Ron.
