my blog postings might be a bit sporadic these days, but i still manage to find time to surf many of my favorite blogs. i found this
pattern after checking in on tami
. both had posted about this fantastic hat! and if you read my blog you know it went to the very top of my project list.
can you stand the the cuteness factor? miss nonabella, my friend's adorable 2 1/2 year old daughter, was the recipient of this sweet treat. i see many, many more of these in my future. i used acrylic (gasp) so this was a super thrifty knit.
speaking of acrylic, it isn't fair that one of my fav color combinations finally came out in a yarn out there - and that it is tlc acrylic. ugh. but of course i didn't let that stop me and bought enough to do a larger pinwheel blanket for myself.
the blue is a pretty turquoise color and deep brown. i think it is going to make a great, washable blanket.
speaking of the pinwheel blanket, i finished the 1st one over the weekend. it is a petite pinwheel, not measuring as large as i would have preferred, but it is for a little peapod, so it should do just fine. the baby shower is in a couple weeks so it is ready just in time.
it looks bigger than it is, and the yarn doesn't photograph very well. i apologize for the icky picture.
i also finished the single sock below. it's mate has just been cast on. this is my "pretty in pink" sock. mainly because i would only have worn a sock that bright as part of an outfit in the 80s. now in 2005, they will just be lounging socks.
although it does coordinate with my luggage pretty well... :)
i'll leave you with one more pic of some good old fashioned cupcakes i whipped up last week for my friend alan's birthday.
YUM! have a fantastic week all.
