Instant Gratification

Ahhhh, how wondrous is the quickie project -- that little mindless beauty that you can whip out in a day just because you needed that instant gratification? I know that I said that I wouldn't start a new project until my WIPs were completed... but come on! I am still working diligently on my other projects but I couldn't quiet the little voice in my head that was urging me to CO. Hence, the Charmed Hat. I joined the Charmed Knits KAL recently and thought, hey, I can CO for a new little project since it's for charity..... And it is, this little baby will be headed to Warm Woolies. In case you were interested, the pattern can be founded at the Charmed Knits site. However, if you so choose to use the pattern, please send one onward :) I made this one out of some Cascade 220 that I had in the stash. Call me crazy though, but I'm rather digging the reverse of the hat. I may have to keep this in mind when I make another -- little man has already picked out the yarn for "his har'potter hat". Here's the proof that I am still working on my WIPs. I finished grandma's footies and they have been washed and blocked out and ready for delivery. I used Lorna's Laces Sport in the Seaside colorway which makes for a nice quick knit :) I'm still working on the TT2 and the second Violets sock (that sock that I finished last year sometime and the match has been sitting quietly in my knitting bag waiting for me to go beyond the initial ribbing.... such a patient sock!) Hopefully I will be able to finish those soon so I can get on with my shawl! Ooh, that's right folks, I am going to attempt to knit myself (I know, that's huge) up a lace shawl. Wish me luck!

In family affairs, the hubby enjoyed his weekend baseball getaway and even brought the minions back a little something from the stadium. Granted it was in Milwaukee, but I admit I was a little surprised when I saw that it was Brewers stuff instead of Cubs stuff. Quite stunned actually. Evidently so was little man. That's him, I promise!
As for little miss, we are still going strong on the Cheerios but I don't think she was too excited about the snow that we got yesterday. Perhaps the hubby's Aunt A will get some use out of the scarf this spring after all.
