Quote of the Day

At 7:15 a.m., young Trevor (who's visiting with his mother and sisters) offered up the quote of the day,

"Aunt Dana, can I hold your rat?"

Me? I'm thinking "RAT!?!?! What rat?!?!?" and then I realize....

Guinea pig? Rat? What's the difference?

WIPs' and FOs'

Here's a photo of Andie's new winter hat. It's another Wooly Wormhead "Rollin Beret" using Malabrigo. She looks very pretty in it if I do say so myself.

This is what I've done so far with Yvonne Boucher's "Sock Monkey" pattern. Rather than doing it on single point needles and seaming it up, I've been using circulars. It's a fun knit and I like how it's turning out so far. I will be sure, however, to use a marled brown yarn on the next monkey so that it looks more authentic.

Below is an early birthday gift from Dynaknits; a Nana Sadie Rose "Posey" with a matching sundries bag! The fabric matches my first NSR bag from Sedalia 2008. I love it, of course, and thank you so much D! :)

And sadly, the monkey has now outgrown the bag and must move into something else.

Happy knitting all!

Hats Galore

Ten hats down in record time! These little guys are going to the 2009 Sock Summit with Dynaknits as part of a donation for Afghani children. I used the "Rollin Baby Beret" pattern by Wooly Wormhead. Using bulky yarn and a higher cast on count created several different child/teen sizes. This pattern just rolls off the needles and I love it!

And this...I can finally post it. It's a Tunisian tradition to give a bridal couple a pillow and with that in mind, Dynaknits and I gave this to Jadielady and her groom (it's their wedding colors) on Saturday.
Next up...Jadie's wedding photos!

....I've been having a lot of fun. Between the festival, Memorial Day weekend with my sister, Jadielady's shower and just having the time to sit down and knit again, I've been enjoying myself thoroughly. Here goes the photos!
