Good Morning

Image hosted by Photobucket.com
Hope you are having a good day. This sunrise began our morning on the last day of our stay at Feathered Horse Ranch. We were up early, stowing things away and hitching up the trailer. Our stay here was a good one, despite the circumstances.

The last hat to show you is called, Lace Baby Beenie. I followed the pattern as directed and ended up with a hat for a 9-11 lb baby. Sounds big for The Preemie Project, but not every baby in the NICU is a preemie. We need a few large sizes too, so this one will be okay.

And, for anyone keeping track of Needville High School football...Needville 28, Huffman-Hargrave 23. It was a good game! Next week starts district competition. That's when it really counts.

Ps. I'll be out of town for a few days. Will post if I'm able.

  2. I like this one a lot! I had a 10lb 12oz baby girl in NICU almost 13 years ago now. She looked very out of place but had a blood sugar problem when she was born (my first pregnancy with gestational diabetes - we didn't know). So you're right, not all babies in the NICU are premature or tiny. :)

  3. I think that this hat just might be my favorite of all. It's so cute! We definitely need the 9-11lb size. We usually just have enough. I hate to always cut it so close!

    Anyway all of the new hats you have been knitting are so cute. I always love your stuff. Also, thank you for the positive comments that you leave on my blog. I can't tell you enough how much I appreciate it. I received a cruel, nasty comment on my blog this week that really got to me. The person says that she saw me in my local knitting shop, and she attacked me personally. I deleted it and I hope that that person won't come back. Anyway it felt really nice to receive your sweet comments after that.

    Luv Ya!

  5. I'm glad your stay at the ranch was good therapy! I LOVE this little hat!! Please tell me where you got the pattern......maybe I'll start one on my plane ride to Dallas this weekend. And these flowers for the party bag are huge unfelted! A skein of Cascade makes only THREE flowers! I need eight- -four on each side! At lunch today I must go buy more yarn.......I'll post photos of them, before and after felting.
