Baby Hats!

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.

Very cute hats!
So sorry you are still feeling crappy. That is just no fun - especially when the weather is getting to be so lovely.
Crazy about the earring.
