A Day (or Two) in the Life

In the life of a hat to be more specific. Do you ever have a special birthday gift that you just can't think of what to get? I had that this past week and then my friend suggested a hat and I immediately thought, why didn't I think of that?! Fortunately I already had a day off of rest planned for Friday, so I just needed to see if I could knit it in time for the party Friday night.


Pedicure knitting, plus some progress from Thursday night tv knitting.


Car wash knitting.


Tv knitting Friday night. Did you watch The Honorable Woman? What a great series! Loved it!


Working the decreases at Saturday morning's soccer game....almost done!


Can't beat Naylor Street for a quick last minute, guy gift. One skein of Plucky Knitter Primo Worsted, colorway Flying Monkeys. Since I love Naylor Street so much, I've put it on sale for $4.00 through the end of September for those of you who don't have this pattern. I love it for baby hats too! And if you use the Plucktember coupon code: WELOVEPLUCKY  you'll receive that extra 20% off too! (good on all IGK patterns $6 or less through the end of September)


Paired with the perfect gift tag from Knitterella.

Just in time for the party! And what a fun party it was.....fabulous food, great friends....


Margaritas! Yes, please! This is the way to start a party!


How was your weekend? Hopefully relaxing and filled with knitting!

Happy fall!

This weekend has been a bust, for the most part...although, I did get some patterned knitting in (Snape's Stockings). That's kind of a big deal with a newborn in the house.

I want to knit all the things but I just don't have time lately :( Oh well, it'll come eventually!

Love the hat and Plucky!
I had a busy weekend! DH was away for his annual Guys Motorcycle Weekend, so I had a Girls Weekend. Pedi with my best bud, potluck dinner with the motorcycle wives, and the Patriots game with my sisters and stepmom. It was fun! Now I need to recover :-)
