Off the Needles (Previously Happy Thanksgiving)

It's been busy around here so far this week.  We had choir last night instead of our usual Thursday practice and also spent the afternoon volunteering at the UW hospital.  The day before we made an unanticipated trip over to Magnolia to help with these two. No wonder time flies, eh?



And I was worried this hat would be too big!  Max's hat looks cute, too, only he didn't hold still long enough for a photo.  Opa managed to slow him down for a little while though. That's his Mariner's hat in case you wondered.



I did manage to finish two more hats from the alpaca stash provided by DD#2.  The color on this one is interesting.



The braid at the bottom of this hat caught my attention when I found this pattern called Watkin. It was a fun knit although I had to modify the pattern to work with this thinner yarn. (If you want to see what others are knitting, check out Patchwork Times.)

OK, so much for my brief respite.  It's back to work.  Hope all of you who celebrated Thanksgiving had a wonderful day.  It's a good thing to think about your blessings, isn't it?  And a good week to all of you.  Can you even believe it's almost December?

Belated Happy Thanksgiving wishes to you and your family Judy. Hope it was a great one for all of you.

Oh my, Stella looks positively adorable in that hat! It suits her to a T. She models it well and it fits her perfectly.

Your two newest hats are pretty. Love the green colour of the one, and the pom pom topper on the other.

Cheers!!

Oh my I just LOVE that little stocking hat!!! Great job on all your hats! I haven't made a hat in ages - after seeing your cute hats, I'm thinking maybe I need to add one to my To-Do list :)

Such cute hats and babies. I love the color of the green one too. That stocking cap fits perfectly. I should try hats before I take socks, but my feet are really needing them more.

I think blogger is eating half my comments. I absolutely KNOW I commented on this post! I love both the children in hats, and the hats without children. =) You are so multi-talented!
