Making

I finished Ida's Kitchen. It's drying. I'll take pictures of it soon. I'm less than pleased. I think it might have been my color choices.
I started this hat, but now I feel I may not have enough leftover sock yarn. It's for Ryan's band teacher. Well not for him, his new baby boy. It's sorta bribery. For some reason he doesn't like Ryan. I guess Ryan can be a bit fidgety in band. Go figure!
I haven't bought any new books lately and two of my favorite friends helped to enable me this past week. I saw Sarah's beautiful quilt squares and was inspired. And then I saw Camilla's family hoodies and knew that was the pattern that I had been searching high and low for Matt's sweater. I have no idea when I might get to these projects, but I love the books and they will be waiting patiently for me when I'm ready.

I heard an interview with the author of the men's book, and thought he was pretty funny. (Which tends to go a long way with me...) Your hat picture is gorgeous, whether or not you have enough yarn! (Though of course I hope you do!)

such beautiful projects!
...need to perhaps add those books to my wish list, especially the hoodies.
Can't wait to see more of these projects.

I can't wait to see your Ida's Kitchen, and I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you in hopes you have enough yarn.

Funny! I am working on the same hat! I just finished booties. I love the color of your yarn, I hope you have enough to finish it.
