Happy New Year, everyone!! This was my last project of 2007, a baby hat and pullover for a coworker.
Pattern: Caron Baby Caftan (without girly embroidery, added white stripes for boyish look.)
Needles: Size 7 & 8
Yarn: Caron Simply Soft – Country Blue and some misc white acrylic baby yarn doubled for contrast.
This was a fast, easy weekend project.
The hat is from this pattern: TLL Basic Knit Hat Pattern, though I increased the length of the hat a few extra rows.
Also, I started the decreases at Knit 4, Knit 2tog, because with a cast on of 54, 6 is easily divisible. The pattern starts it at Knit 3, Knit2tog…and well, 54 isn’t divided evenly by 5.
Also in December, I knit 2 pairs of wrist warmers (not shown) and in early December I crocheted the Sweet Pea Shawl from the Happy Hooker book.
I have also been working on a few other projects, but that is all that I finished.
In 2008, Tony and I have both decided to work on our health more, exercise more, eat better, get more organized, work harder on our finances so we can buy a house, be nicer to each other and the kids…you know, all of the usual things. Probably things everyone can hope to do better. Maybe I should add, be a better blogger in there…
Tony added, may we not have to visit the ER more then once in a month…and I added…may we not visit the ER at ALL this year.
