Cabled Baby Hat Finished and Sunshine...

The cabled hat torture is over. I worked VERY hard to get this hat just right. Ann from Mason Dixon Knitting dot com compared a sweater that she is working on to backyard wrestling. You should check it out it's hilarious. They are hilarious.

I completed, CONQUERED this cabled hat. Completing it once (ie: hershey kiss baby hat in earlier post here) Started again, ripped it out 6 or more times halfway. I FINALLY completed it with help from a cable hat tutorial here..Link..bless you Bohemian Knitter Chic.

Please enjoy a couple photos of Baby Yaya in his handsome hat.

A picture of a happy Momma with her baby boy, who gets to knit something else for a change! Thank you God!

Sit and Knit:February and other fun...mostly pictures...

Why not start with Baby Ya Ya, he's amazing and brightens up any ol March day!!! My gift to you is his magnificent smile!!!
My birthday gifts were delightful.....I am complete now with both Mason Dixon books! I can't wait to try the mitered square/quilt.
A couple of my new best friends bought me this ball winder. What a neat surprise and so handy. I feel like a professional now that I have this piece of gear!
Gretchen's heart valentine to me. I love her and her knitting.
My birthday card to Gretchen. A crochet hand dyed heart........
A fun red cross cable, easier than I thought, still challenging though......I made a index card cozy out of the swatch for my dear friend Gretchen.
Christmas yarn and my new book...
A french press cozy I knit. I had started a log cabin blanket and lost interest, so, i felted the little bugger and added some velcro straps to the back to help it stay on the french press.
Voila, hot coffee a little longer.
