Oh, HATS!! (and a little spaghetti art)

Not really much to update. We have been sick. I love sleeping with my kids, but waking up to throw up is one of the small print details no one discloses when you hop in the co sleeping train!! We are on the mend now, and hopefully will be fully functioning by Monday. Since I have nothing fun to talk about I will bombard you with pictures!! LOL

As always, I have been knitting up a storm. I was goign to teach a friend to knit and wanted to something fun ans cute, but quick. What I came up with was super bulky yarn and size 15 needles. I am still trying to get things scheduled with my friend, but here are a few pics of the creations. They are made with Rowan Big Wool and Rowan Ribbon Twist. The hats took less than 2 hours each. Here are the pics.








































I have also recently started doing hat and bootie sets for babies. I think it will be my new baby shower gift. They are a really quick knit and WOW are they ever cute!! Here are the 2 I have done so far:



























Okay, I know this is not a hat, but I FINALLY finshed the purse I promised my sister for Christmas. She is the sassy artistic type, so I wanted to do something special for her. I was inspired by my friend Kim's recent success with felted flowers so I did some of these. The pink one is felted the blue is not. When I am in the mood for something quick I think i will make her more flowers so she has one to match anything she is wearing. TOO FUN!! Now to make one for me.......just kidding.....I have a few more to make for friends and family first!



























Last, but not least, Aurora is such a kick. She is a stinker about eating.....I thought she was being awfully quiet at dinner, when I noticed she was creating little people with her spaghetti. One is me and the other is Jeremy. I'll give her props for creativity...now how to make the child eat!!!

Hi Nicole! Thanks for checking out my blog and leaving a comment. It's nice to meet you (through the Pea Pod KAL), too. I love those hats. They look like the perfect beginner/learning project. I hope you're feeling better. I had a horrible stomach flu a few weeks ago, maybe the same one? I hear it's rampaging across the country.
