on thursday, i talked to mom and she told me that a friend’s baby shower is next saturday. since she lives in my hometown, i had to take into account shipping time, too. i’m in the middle of a project (that i really want to finish!), but i dropped everything to start a hat for the shower. and… *gasp* i finished it! and with time to spare! : ) yay! now i just have to get it off in the mail.
i think it’s a pretty cute hat, but my very favorite part is the crown decreasing. see how pretty?! i know, i’m silly. but still!
also, an old project that needs showing:
a fabulous little set of potholders to use when taking things out of the microwave or oven or anywhere else (but most of my food involves the microwave, lol). they aren’t much to speak of, but they work really well. i used this pattern for a couple of sets of potholders a few years back, but now the pattern is gone. it’s a really simple double knitting pattern, though. i like the results and that there is no seaming (seaming and i are not friends!).
