So, finishing this hat means you can expect a new yarn review, soon. :D
This hat isn't the only thing I finished today. I finished my __________ for my swapee. Unfortunately she may be stalking my blog so I cannot show you a picture or tell you what it is. But no one says I can't show a tiny sneak preview!
I hope that's not too telling... but I'm pretty sure she's not stalking my blog anyways, and once I ship out the parcel (probably this Friday) I can post all the goodies I've been working on, finally. (It's so hard to keep things a secret!!)
And, of course, what is a day of finishing without some starting?
So of course I cast on right away. I'm delighted it's a girl because
1) She can share a room with Zoe
2) She can have hand-me-downs and it will be less expensive
3) Girls are cute
4) I have a ton of pink/purple yarn in the stash that I've been hoping I could use for this very purpose
So, first off I'm making a baby blanket with some Bernat Baby Boucle. It's an acrylic, but I'm a mother and I know washable = good. I have about a billion balls of this stuff, passed down in that huge stash enrichment, and I'm hoping I cast on enough to make a sizeable blanket.
Now excuse me.
I have hot chocolate and a couch waiting.
|Hee hee, my chocolate looks really gross. It's Abuelita's. And yes, I put 4 marshmallows in it. There were 5, but I ate one before I took the picture. ;)|
