happy solstice!

The days are getting longer now... thank goodness! It seems like it's already been winter for a very, very long time.

I've been knitting with my new double pointed needles, my first project was a doll hat -


And then I had to make another one for Sophie's friend Sierra. Because I'm sure her baby doll needs a hat too.

This is my second Robin's Egg Blue Hat - I still haven't taken any pictures of the first one, but this one turned out better anyways. I just put the button on this morning:

Not the greatest picture of me, but you get the idea. The only thing I don't like is how pointy the top is... if I make another one, I'll buy the right size double pointeds first so that there isn't a seam right in the front of the hat also. Another christmas present wrapped and ready to go...

And Sophie turns 19 months old today.

(I think I have more fun with these blocks than she does)

Congrats on the double points. Are you knitting in the round now? You'll learn to enjoy it and find that projects move along much quicker.

I'm glad our days will be getting longer too. I should probably think about updating my blog too. I made some baby hats this winter and a cool ruffly scarf I got from one of the blogs you visit.

take care - gina
