I finished two other baby hats while I was home convalescing. I'm still under the weather, but I have progressed to the severe congestion phase. The phase where nothing helps. I've tried it all.
So, I did a lot of knitting. The green hat I wrote about earlier.
Monday night I started the Candy Cane hate from Itty Bitty Hats. I used Crystal Palace Yarns Merino 5 in Red and White. This is leftover from the Cherry-O hat I knit about a year ago.
Totally cute hate! I love the way my pom-pom turned out too! I was a little skeptical while I was knitting, but it turned out great.
So, I finished that up Tuesday and since I had nothing better to do, I started another Marley Hat. This is done with Tahki Cotton Classic, a yarn I have way too much of in my stash from the 4 other Marley hats I have knit.
By the time I got done, I just didn't have the energy to make the topper, so I left it off. I think it looks cute this way too. The Marley topper is really cute, but more work than I wanted to put in.
So, I'm still home, feeling miserable. On the plus side, I found a diamond earring that went missing about 6 months ago. This will sound crazy, but I've never been too terribly worried about it. I figured it would turn up eventually.
Well, this morning I was dragging my Kleenex around and used the last piece. I could hear something rattling around in there and my first thought was, "I wonder if that is my diamond earring?" I didn't think that because I'm psychic or anything. It's pretty much my first thought these days whenever it sounds like something small is rattling around in anything.
So, I look in the box, and sure enough, there it is! I'm not really sure how it got there, but I'm glad to have it back.
