Micayla's hat is finished. I was able to use some maroon I had left from another project and of course you always have black laying around.

I was originally going to make this in solid maroon, but it was actually Micayla's idea to add the band of black and one more row of maroon. I think it turned out quite nicely. And it matches her gloves perfectly. I have other hats that I finished in this same pattern. Two all black ones and another in autumn colors with some blue. As of right now, I do NOT want to make any more hats. Burned Out!

I have been really bad at posting. Thank you to Robyn for downloading my pictures so I could put them here. This is a picture of the hat for Heather. I made her a total of three hats two like this one and the third was autumn colors. Same style. Next up, Micayla.

I finished Sam's hat last night. I tried it on my head and it seems really huge. I gave it to her today. I had her try it on because I thought it would be too big. She liked the fact that it wasn't as tight as the others, but I did have to take off one row. After that she said it was perfect. Yay!

Also, I started on Heather's third hat. I have yet to show Micayla the yarn. I will do that tomorrow. I keep forgetting to take it to work with me. She didn't mind too much, she forgot her scarf. Evelyn also gave me an idea of what she wants. She wants an autumn style one like mine, it won't be exact though. I don't have the exact same yarn. Can't find it. I do know of something similar. She said that was fine. The other one she wants in black. Same DC/Fan pattern. Lindsay hasn't gotten any more specific. I'll have to chat with her.

Started Sam's hat. I still have to check with Micayla to see exactly what red she wants me to use. She said she wanted bright red, but the bright red I have is too bright I think. Anyway, I went to Wal-Mart and saw the perfect yarn for Sam's hat. She wanted blues and I found RH blue varigated. She also wants hers a little bigger so I will have to adjust the pattern by one stitch.

I started Julieann's other hat on 12.5.05. She wanted a black one just like the white ribbed hat I made for her before. I finished it last night and gave it to her today. Only five to go.....
And December 7th was my birthday! Pearl Harbor Day and My Birthday! And people are getting on my nerves. On MY BIRTHDAY! Oh well, it's bound to happen anytime. Either you like someone or you don't. Make up your mind. We are not in high school anymore. The caddiness is ridiculous. I am done with this silliness. As Marty put it quite nicely one day: "Miss Congeniality".

I gave Heather her other hat today. She was really excited. She said her younger daughter (who it is for) will absolutely love it. Good. She is supposed to! Then she asked me if I could make another. Sure, not a problem. I did tell her she was in line. I have about 4-5 to make before I get to this one for her.

I made Heather's other hat and finished it today. It is done with the same pattern from the other one. This time I used RH Piniata. It is a bright/soft variagated rainbow. Really pretty. I plan to give it to her Monday.

I finished the first hat for Heather. It is done in the Autumn colors she asked for. Exactly like my hat. She said that one is for her older daughter.

I finished Brittney's blanket last night and got it washed and dried tonight. I also started on one of the hats for Heather. I gave it to her today-it is so much softer once it was washed. Plus with the dog, I was sure there would be more hair. I also have another request for another item. Yvonne said she wanted a scarf.
Previously, On Thanksgiving, we had Pete's mom over and Hope & Bryan. Sheila and Hope decided to buy us a new set of 120 piece silverware. Apparently we never have any silverware when they come over. It is an early Christmas present and they gave it to us before Thanksgiving so that we could use it on Thanksgiving day. Pete made a really good dinner. Mom and Dad came over just as we were finishing up dinner. They went to Sue's so really weren't hungry. They ended up taking Ashley and Stephen with them for 2 days. Katrina and Marty got here on Friday. We went over to Mom and Dad's on Saturday for dinner. Deanna and I put together a slideshow and photo album for Mom and Dad's anniversary. Pete had wanted to leave at around 7:30 so he could get home in time to watch the Notre Dame game, but we were having problems with the computer. Ashley ended up staying another day and went shopping with Mom and Katrina and Pete and I took Stephen with Austin and Anthony for the night. Mom brought Ashley home around 8pm Sunday night. She got a new pair of winter boots, pants, a ring and dinner at Red Lobster. They were all very tired and went to sleep as soon as they got in bed.
