Today I went to my friend Chris' house to have some coffee (Happy National Coffee Day, by the way) and to teach her daughter, one of Daphne's best friends, to knit. So much fun. I love it when the light goes on and they get the hang of it. Anyway, while I was there, I got to see some baby quilts that Chris had made, and I got all inspired to work on Daphne's baby clothes project. I can't start it until I finish MY quilt, but I did go into the garage to drag out the baby clothes box. Daphne and I had a blast digging through it, and while we were doing so, we found this little pink hat, which is the first complete project I ever knitted. Daphne has decided it still fits.
Here it is, many years ago, when it was first finished. Not perfect - I see some little holes on the rolled brim - but cute anyway. Even cuter after I added the green button. (Not as cute as the baby wearing it, though). I never would have believed I could make the Owl sweater back then.
I have made Daphne and her friend Ruby promise that someday, they will teach someone else to knit. I hope they keep their promise. As Chris said, Knit it Forward!
This afternoon, we met my family for a late lunch to celebrate my mom's birthday, and then we had some play time with the good puppies. Look how tall Chief is getting!
Yesterday, Daphne went to a birthday party, so Kev and I hung out and had a little band practice. It was fun, and I got to play the guitar, plus some Tom Petty and Neil Young harmonica parts. I can still rock! Even though I make quilts and knit things!
Just in time for the series to end, Kev and I started watching Breaking Bad. We have seen three episodes so far, and I am hooked. Please don't tell me what happens during the next five years worth of episodes.
