I finished a couple hats. Ok ok ...one hat and one wanna be hat. The first finished hat is the Lillehammer hat from http://www.cidermoon.com/ Done with Knit Picks Merino Style in Storm ( 23464) and Fog (23450) (two weather elements that fit together perfectly, as do they in this hat!)
Here's a picture of the top. This is supposed to be for Brent. I hope it will fit down over his ears like it does on Jake.
Now this poor hat below....I mean come on...doesn't Jakes eye's speak volumes of the atrocity of this hat?!? This is the Jughead hat from DomiKNITrix, and OBVIOUSLY I have done something wrong!!!!!! Seriously WRONG!
I do believe this hat will go in the toy box for them to play with! It is also knit in the Knit Picks Merino Style yarn Fog.
Below is my mother and her Bob sweater from www.magknits.com I think she did a great job on the sweater! Good Job Mom!
Over the weekend I went with some of the Manchvegas knitters to Maine. We had a rip roaring good time! Donna (blogless) drove and Gina, Melissa and I tagged along in her car. Chris and Ericka also went and took their car. A few sassy gals from Yarn Cellar in Maine met up with us and went too (Julie, Patty and Brenda [I think that was her name, if not there's always the edit option to fix that!]) We met up with Amy from Spunky Eclectic. Gina took a lot of pictures and has some on her blog so check them out. Here's one I snagged from her of me learning how to use a drop spindle. Thank Melissa for letting me try your drop spindle and getting things going backwards for ya...after all what are friends for!??! haha

Love the lillehammer love the bob. That Jughead hat would be cute in pink for a girl. Poor Jacob. He is very expressive, isn't he?

so... the spinning cult got you?

Amanda...Gina took that picture of me on my profile page. She threw the camera over her head to take a picture and I just did an AUTOMATIC zoom myself! LOL She took one of Melissa like that too. Pretty Funny!

Yeah Brenda! I got your name right. I'm usually bad about remembering names. :)

Tabitha, yeah it's going to get addicting if I try again!

Jackie, yeah that spinning bug is dangerous..who knows! I thought it might be fun to teach Jacob this summer.
