Monday Odds & Ends

Is it Monday already? Where did my weekend run away to this time? Despite the cold and rain, I had fun at the NH Sheep and Wool Festival on Saturday... and promise lots of cute fuzzy animal photos to come!

In the meantime, I have some FO-in-use photos to share. Here is baby Ella modeling the Vine Lace Baby Hat and Magic Slippers.

Isn't she adorable? I'm not sure I'm loving how the Vine Lace hat fits her (nevermind that's the 3 - 6 month size and she's only 5 weeks old), but she is cute. Has anyone else knit this hat? Any issues? I have another one on the needles now, which should end up coming out a bit larger, as I'm using two different colors of Rowan Siena held together.

No baby robins yet... still 2 eggs in the original nest and 4 in the second one.

These are the two nests under our back porch (I'm sure there are many more in the yard somewhere, as our robin population is quite grand). I'm starting to wonder if the original two eggs have been abadoned as you can see the nest has sort of filled in over them. I guess only time will tell...

Reminder: If you have not yet entered to win a copy of Vogue Stitchionary Vol 5 - Lace Knitting, you have until midnight tonight! I have a lot of great items to review and share with you soon, so stay tuned. A couple of the 4-legged reviewers aren't feeling so well at the moment, so we've had to put off a couple of the treat reviews a little longer, but they're coming!

Enjoy the rest of your Monday.... and Go Bruins!

I've not seen baby Ella before; she's darling. So are her hat and booties. Aren't you lucky to have people providing you with cute little girls for whom you can try out these precious patterns!
