FO!

The big green blanket is now about 85% done. Maybe this weekend....

However, I did start, and finish, a little project this weekend.

Vinnie wearing Sweet Pea
That's my head behind Vinnie's - see my hair sticking out?

Okay, so, no matter how cute he is, Vinnie isn't the best model. Actually, it's probably because he was happy to wear the hat as long as he was sitting on my lap, leaning against me.

The pattern is Sweet Pea, and it's for my hairstylist, who is due in about 2 weeks and doesn't know if she's having a boy or a girl.

Sweet Pea

The yarn is Mission Falls 1824 Cotton, (colors Frost, Lemongrass, and Wintergreen), which I'm not really crazy about - too cottony! And if I were to do it again, I'd use size 6 needles, rather than size 7.

I do like the peas in the pod, though.

My other FO of the weekend was Rachael's book, How to Knit a Love Song. Even though I pre-ordered it from Amazon, just because it was Rachael's book, it's been lying on my table ever since it arrived. I just don't read romances. But Friday night, I wanted something light to read, so I picked it up -- and I loved it! It's well-written and has a story full of people I really liked. I'm not giving up my murder mysteries for romances, but I'll certainly read Rachael's next one.

OK, I'm not a cat person, but that cat doesn't look happy to me...but it is a very cute hat.

Vinnie might be plotting his revenge for that set of pictures.

Cute hat! The peas make it!

I didn't even notice the peas in the pod when I saw the pictures in Ravelry. So cute! Vinnie is quite the trooper.

Vinnie! VINNIE! Vinnie and Simon are long lost brothers, it is clear to me.

Cute hat and I adore the peas in the pod - so sweet!

The Cat in the Hat (couldn't resist the Dr. Suess reference) is just too funny. The cat in the Cat in the Hat book looks a lot happier about the situation though.
