Wow, That Was Fast!

100_4705

Disregard the dirty face and focus on the hat, please! Whenever I had a lull in my activities today, Jessica asked, "Don't you want to work on your knitting, Mom?" Translation, I want you to get MY hat done!  LOL She was so excited and I was relieved that it actually fit. It didn't take that long at all as it's a straightforward stitch. I just love the colors and the softness of the yarn. Amy immediately asked, "When are you going to start on my hat, Mom?" So, I'm working on hat number two (worked on it while I watched the last half of John McCain's speech and got the brim done already). I want to make a matching scarf, too. Tomorrow I want to pick up a pom pom maker device. I think it will add just the right touch.

Remember my retail therapy this past weekend? Well, I ordered some stamps from Verve Visual and just this morning I checked to see the status of my order. There was no indication of any processing or shipping. I figured with the holiday and all that I'd be lucky to get the stamps on Monday. Guess what showed up in today's mail?! Yeppers! I am so tickled and appreciative of their speedy service. I can't to ink them up!

Thanks for visiting! Til Next Time...

Very nice hat! I think I *need* that knitter. Having such short hair myself, I have quite a hat collection. I would go nuts if I could make my own and choose the exact colors I wanted. Hmmmm...Michael's you said? May just have to pop in there after church on Sunday! ;D

This looks so cute! I used to knit before I discovered scrapping, now I just don't have (or take) the time for it anymore. Great job!

The hat, and the super-sweet little face under it, are totally adorable! I love her comment, "Don't you want to work on your knitting?" Too cute!
