3.20.11

hatzgreen crochetgreen

SPECS:

Pattern: Crochet PomPom Baby Hat by Nikki Kirkwood (My Ravelry Link Hat 1 & Hat 2)
For: Photography Props
Yarn: Sean Sheep armytage (Wal-Mart Canada)
Hook: 10.0 mm (N/P)
Size
: Newborn and 3-6 months size
Timeline: March 19, 2011 (about an hour each)
Modifications: For the newborn size, I chained the 28 as it called for, but I added the extra round that the 3-6 month size calls for in the pattern as I found without it, it was preemie size. Yarn was held double stranded on both hats.
Notes: I think I know this pattern off by heart now. It's super easy.

Today was a nice relaxing Sunday. We had a play date this morning for brunch with a friend of mine and her almost 6 year old and her almost 3 year old daughters (the almost 3 year old is 3 weeks younger than Mackenzie). It was nice to see the boys play with some girls for a change. It's rare we have girls over. But the rest of the afternoon we spent chilling at home. It was a nice day today, the first day of Spring. Though, they're actually calling for snow tomorrow... which is kind of depressing. At least today, the first day of spring was warm & sunny.

I played around with my new camera today (the Nikon D300S).
I spent quite some time this weekend reading the instruction manual.
It's quite the powerful camera and I wanted to learn how to use it properly.
A few features weren't set properly when I got the camera, but now it seems to be good.

Quentin makes the perfect model.
I love him in all whites. He's delicious!
I just want to eat him up.

Love the crocheted hat, and especially Q in it. And yes, he does look delicious in white (or any other colour for that matter!). We've got 'the Going to Bed book' out of the library right now for O. Love it. Also love 'Moo, Baa, La, La, La'. I'll respond to all of your emails/questions today hopefully!

I've been getting Mabel Labels for the past 3 years. Either for camp or school, people are always impressed by them and my kids loose a lot less stuff now. LOL! ;)
