Zoe and I saw her yesterday, when she called to ask if I had any yarn to make a baby hat out of. We do and we did, so we got it and we made it. One simple hat out of fluffy baby yarn, in colors Zoe specifically picked for said Baby, who is due any sec, soooo... now that the hat is finished and the Sox are done messing with our traffic, Cassie's all set for a quick drive down to Brigham & Womens...
Baby Price's hat is perched on one of my Favorite Things About Halloween. If Cassie has her baby this week, I'll be bringing a few of these over to the hospital room!
Here's another Favorite Thing About Halloween.
On the knitting front, I'm about ready to frog Clapotis. I know it's a great pattern (2,000 knitters can't be wrong!), and the finished Claps are gorgeous, but I'm bored with all the knit knit knit. Am thinking I'll give Ella a shot instead. Not too much detail to get lost in the colors, but enough to keep it a little more interesting. I've been thinking of this patten ever since Wendy Wonacott posted it a while back, but never had the right yarn. Perhaps this stuff is it?
I'm also making one more Cabled - for a friend - out of my leftover Cascade. The math translates easily, so I will add a note to the pattern when I'm done for a new yarn weight.
Happy Halloween - get yourself a pumpkin beer!
