now for the important things:

1. i have decided to frog the bohemian hat, i am going to start again using the
simplest cap of all pattern, i think it is going to look much better than it does now … so i am going to have to knit fast to be able to get it in the mail on moday …

2. i have finished the back of the baby sweater i am doing for my friend, its going to be a vneck cardi in bernat satin, baby blue … it is very cute, i do need to get a few more skeins though because i want to make a hat and booties to go along with it …

3. last night i finally cast on my first ever opal, for dad’s socks although i only completed 1 round we are now moving in the right direction … onward and upward

4. i picked up 2 skeins of bernat baby boucle for caps for a cure, a yellow and a multi color purple (here is a picture)

5. and most important … my mothers cat had kittens wednesday, so we are taking one, there is a brown & white and a black one – i think we are going to take the brown & white one … now we just have to come up with a name and of course ds (7) and dd(5) are trying to help ...

so many things have disappointed me the last few days … first of all the patriots let go of arguably the best kicker EVER … so we shall see what they come up with as a replacement (i do not have high expectations on this) …

next the lacey bag i am knitting, we lets just saw something went horribly wrong … i did a solid back instead of carring the pattern … well it is a lot wider and just a bit longer as well … here is a picture of the disaster: well a picture will have to wait because i can’t seem to get blogger to upload my picture …

i don’t think blocking is going to fix this issuse … so we shall toss it in a pile and forget about it for a while … i just want to point out that it is almost 4pm on thursday almost 24 hours after the original post!!! gotta love blogger sometimes!

third on the list of disapointments is the bohemian hat … for some reason it is huge … i am hopeing that some one has a larger head … also while it is pretty and soft it is a real pain to knit with … (see picture from previous post)

okay so i think i have done enough complaining for now … i will try later to add the picture, with better results hopefully!

okay i am finally knitting the bohemian after much saga … i am doing a simple rolled brim hat, because the yarn is so pretty and soft i did not think there was any need to do a fancy pattern that would probably get lost anyway … so here is a WIP picture …

i am hoping to have it finished by the end of the week end so i can mail it with the other 2 hats i did … keep your fingers crossed!!
