Snippets

Look what I saw on Sunday. One of the pumpkin hats I knitted being worn by a sweet baby boy. It made my day!

I inherited this ball of yarn from my mother-in-law's stash. It is a two-ply wool that I think will work well for a shawl. I didn't know how much yardage there was though, so I used the kniddy noddy to guesstimate and wound it into center pull cakes.

There is close to 1000 yards--enough for most shawls. I had Flower Basket Shawl in mind, thinking I had the pattern, but I don't. Guess I'll have to buy it.

I knitted two headbands. I'll keep one in the jeep and one in the truck. That way I'll always have something with me to keep my ears warm--no more improvising. The patterns I used are Super Simple Knit Headband and You Stole My Heart Band (minus the beads). The yarn is Mountain Colors. The colorways are a mystery to me as they were mill ends and were not labeled. I used two strands held together and size US 8 (5 mm) needles.

Several weeks ago we were treated to a beautiful rainbow after a light shower. The picture got left in the camera and I forgot all about it until now.

May God give you...For every storm a rainbow, for every tear a smile, for every care a promise and a blessing in each trial. For every problem life sends, a faithful friend to share, for every sigh a sweet song and and answer for each prayer.

  9. Your pumpkins hat looks so sweet on that baby. I was going to make one this year, but I couldn't find any tiny babies. Those hats look so adorable on the really little ones,

  10. The baby in your hat - precious!

    Great shawl yarn! I can't wait to see it knitted up. And to hear how you like the Flower Basket pattern. I haven't tried that one.

    The headbands are perfect. I think I'll be trying those patterns. But where in the world did you find mill ends of Mountain Colors?

  11. It's been a few weeks since I stopped by and you have been very busy! I like the scarf stitch pattern you are using -- it really shows of the yarn.
    And what a cute little guy, made even cuter with a pumpkin hat :-)
    Looking forward to seeing the flower basket shawl started -- it will be gorgeous in that yarn.

  12. To see the fruit (yes pun intended) of your efforts must have really been heart warming. I have the Santa hats ready to go from this Jan. I guess I need to take them down to the hospital so they will be there for the season. They have been sitting in a drawer just waiting for the right heads!
