Sigh. I just made this very long “update” post about our entire family and everything that’s been going on. Then something happened and now it’s gone. So you’ll have to make do with captions on pictures that aren’t even in the order I wanted them…
Kara taught me to knit. This is the 2nd
hat I made, for Ben. He hates it and tries to rip it off at every opportunity. :)
This is the 4th
hat I made. A complete failure. It looks as bad in real life as it does in the picture.
Still a climber. I think it won’t be long before he figures out he can pull the drawers out to get up on the counter. Needless to say, we keep the kitchen closed off most of the time.
This is the 5th
hat I made, for the new baby girl next winter. Well, she’ll be born in the spring, but the hat is for the winter…did you get that? It’s called the “Bedtime Stocking Cap” and I really like how it turned out…except for the part a little more than half way up where the yarn lined up perfectly next to the same colors. I’m not sure what I could have done to avoid that, but I like it so much I’ll probably make another one with “real” stripes.
I love this hat. # 6. I finished it last night (early this morning, actually). It’s newborn size so hopefully it’ll fit her right away. I almost wish she was here so we could try it on…almost. I still have too much to do…and more hats to make. :) I’m actually surprised it turned out so well, because I changed the pattern quite a bit, but I just think it’s too cute. I want to make her some booties to match.
This is the 1st hat I made for my first baby girl. Doesn’t she look so grown up? Check out the outfit – her own creation. Yes, her necklace is a curtain tie-back.
Benjamin loves utensils. If he won’t eat and I give him a fork, he’ll usually take at least a few bites. I wonder if I gave him a fork to sleep with he’d stay in his crib all night?
So that’s it for now. Yes, the 3rd hat I made is missing. It’s in Iowa with my nephew Landon, maybe I’ll get some pictures of it over the holidays. Sorry this is kind of random with a bunch of pictures of hats…
