Rainy Easter Eve

Its another cold and rainy day here in Lapdog country. I had a bunch of things that were to be done today, but it has turned in to one lazy day. It's okay though, I think I'll get some knitting done. I finished off Emma's bunny tail hat last night, but need to tack the ears and add the tail.

Obviously that pic was taken before ear #2 was knit last night, but you get the idea. This is the first time I've used Crystal Palace Bunny Hop and I absolutely love knitting with it!

Now that the bunny hat is finished, I think I'll get back to working on the Cuff Bootees for, of course, Emma.

I'm using Baby Cashmerino in the prettiest lilac as the main color and leftovers from her first hat as the contrast. I even got to use a pair of Mom's old metal needles that she gave me when I first took an interest in learning how to knit again...

In other knitting news, I've done a little stash enhancement lately... most of which has been super soft baby yarns for a certain little munchkin. However I finally splurged on myself and grabbed a skein of Jade Sapphire Mongolian Cashmere 4-ply last week. I had eyed this uber soft yarn at Yarn & Fiber a few times and when I stopped in to pick up preemie hats last week, well... I couldn't leave a yarn shop without buying something, right?

I think its going to either be one of the cowls or a scarf from the Luxury Yarns One Skein Wonders book....

My other stash enhancement isn't so exciting or unsual... some RY Cashsoft and All Seasons Cotton that was on clearance and some Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran for baby items. You can check my Ravelry stash if you really want to see them.

For those of you who've been knitting for the Friends of Emma (button and Ravelry group coming soon - thanks to Chan's suggestion!) donation of preemie/infant hats, the first delivery has been postponed (from today) due to Emma not being allowed to go "out and about" until later this month. So... Emma, her Mom and I will now plan to delivery round 1 on April 25th (which means there is still time to get in if you want). I'll leave you with a couple shots of the munchkin in her going home outfit from Tuesday...

Auntie loves that she's already showing her bad-arse-princess -baby-rocker sides... being dressed in her pretty frilly number and having a skull & crossbones next to her head!

What a little cutie. I'm so glad she's finally home. She's going to be a well dressed young lady with you knitting for her. Happy Easter to all.
