Down This Road Before

I'm talking about Hwy 45 N out of Houston. I didn't expect we'd be heading out of town again so soon, but an opportunity to visit our daughter and her husband arose and we ended up in Fort Worth this weekend.

Car knitting was preemie hats. I finished five on this trip. Add these to the others for a total of ten preemie hats for Hannah's Knitsters.

Preemie hats this size are quick to knit. There are only 48 stitches. Just knit in the round for four inches and then work the decreases. Knit an i-cord or add a pom-pom and you're done.

While we were in Fort Worth, Robyn and James treated us to dinner at Edelweiss.

It was an experience like none other. Good food and live accordion music in a welcoming family atmosphere.

How many restaurants do you know of where the chicken dance is the highlight of the evening?

And how many places provide cards like this one at every table?

It is an unique place and we certainly had fun.

  2. I love that pattern--it's the one I use most for preemie hats. In fact, it was the one I used for the first hat that I knit for my nephew that fit. 48 stitches using fingering weight yarn. He was so tiny at first.

  4. How fun that you got to visit with your daughter, who has the most gorgeous head of red hair, I might add!

    You are going to town on the preemie hats. You've inspired me. If I can ever meet my other knitting obligations, I want to start on preemie caps.

  5. PS-I meant to comment on the restaurant, too. Since my mom and her husband live in Ft.Worth, I'll know to suggest that restaurant on one of our upcoming visits, since we usually all go out for a meal when we're there. It looks like such fun! :-)

  6. i love premie hat knitters. as a neonatal nurse i cannot stress enough how parents delight in a hat that fits their baby. Just last night some parents asked me who knit our premie hats, and i told them about knitters like you. it is often the first piece of clothing they wear. The come out to kangaroo with their parents and they only need a hat and a blanket to cover them because they are skin to skin with their mom or dad. thanks
