Yarn is Adriafil Knitcol, colorway is Verdi Fancy, with a brim of Cascade 220, colorway Sapphire Heather, which was leftover from a previous hat and ended up matching the main yarn perfectly, despite being from a completely different company! Pattern is Basic Baby Hat.
I offered to find an outfit that went with the hat, which Allie gratefully accepted, and this is what I came up with. Cary helped me shop; she loves these bodysuit onesies and little soft jogger pants for Logan, so I figured this would be a good choice.
I'm a full-service mother - even bagged up the gift and sent it along with Jeff when he went to Dallas so he could bring it to Allie.
Best part about knitting this hat was having a baby to try it on for size; Logan is growing out of his hats so quickly that I wanted to make sure this would fit the new baby for a few months, at least. Lucky for Logan, his mama is knitting him some sweet hats so he's covered - haha, literally!
This may look like a simple picture - Paco and Henry on the bed:
Whut? We just chillin'.
But what is remarkable is that Paco stayed on the bed while I took a shower. We've had him for nearly 11 years, and every time I go to take a shower, he jumps off his nice warm spot on the bed and "hides" behind the closed bedroom door, because he's afraid he's going to have to get a bath. Every time. And yet when it's actually bath time for Paco? We remove his collar and he walks into the shower fairly willingly. But he always hides when he's not even close to having a bath - until one morning last week. I was so surprised to see him that I had to take a picture and send it to Jeff. He's back to hiding again - this was a one time deal, I guess.
Look at the sweet baby hostas that Lori sent me from her garden:
I hope these New Yorkers can adjust to becoming Texans!
I've always admired her hostas whenever she shows pictures of them, so she very kindly mailed some to me; they are a shade-loving plant, and while I have a few shady areas around the side of our house, I wanted to see these guys, so we planted them in a pot that is mostly in the shade on the patio. Fingers crossed we keep them alive!
We have a special themed run on tap for tomorrow - I'll tell you more about it on the next WWU. Have a great weekend!
