Nuthin' Much

There really hasn't been much knitting going on around here.

I am counting on a nice "holiday knitfest" this upcoming week after I take care of my household duties ;op

I am now at the endless stockinette knitting on Ms. Marigold

Since I am not all that excited about SS knitting, it has been going at a snail pace! ;oD Like I said nuthin' much going on.

I am about 1/2 way there on the SS section for the waist. Then I will need to pick up the neckline for ribbing...I am sure I can push thru that KA!

In the meantime, I needed another quickie project to ensure I would not get into a knitting funk
I made my very 1st completed (notice this key word) hat for a charity called afghans for Afghans that Alison in our Charlotte Purls group has commissioned some of us to participate in.

I really couldn't tell if this would fit a newborn...it looked big.
So I called on one of my little friends to try it on :o)Mmmmh still not convinced it fits.

Do you think this little guy could help me out??
Isn't he precious!! Jonas is 3 months old.
Jonas' mom was very nice to let me try it on him! It matched his eyes! And I couldn't help but give it to them!

She said it was perfect since they were going to the mountains the next day.

Just precious!!

So since this hat just happened to jump out of my hands! ;o) I will have to make a couple more for the charity before the deadline ;op LOL

More details about the F.O. when I have cranked out a few more hats!

Alright...so who rocked the hat the best?? :oD Haha!

    My gosh, the little hat is just the cutest! No, wait, that's not true: Jonas is the cutest! And Jonas with the hat is even cuter!!! What a precious little darling, and it seems he's really treasuring that gorgeous hat!
    I can well imagine that you're getting bored to tears with those rows and rows of stockinette - but you'll get past that too and the result will be so worth it! This is going to be totally beautiful!

    Awwww what an adorable hat. i can totally understand how you could be compelled to let littl jonas keep that.
    Your coming along well on Marigold too, i know the stockinette is so boring :( you would think it would go fast but it drags.
    and remember when the neckline comes
    "YOU GO! YOU CAN DO IT! YOU CAN DO IT! PICK IT UP, PICK IT UP!"
    ;)
