Aarrrgghh...Pirates

I've never really knitted anything for Jeramy, so when I saw this hat on Ravelry I just knew I'd finally found the perfect project for him. The only problem that I've run into so far is that it's going to be too small to fit his giant head. So I guess this one will be for me, and I'll adjust the pattern to make a gigantic one for him. The one thing that I don't like at this point is that the bottom of the hat rolls up. I'm hoping that will be fixed with blocking, but if not I may need to re-work that part too.

Jeramy and his biker friends are going to the Apple Blossom Festival in Wenatchee this weekend, which leaves me with the house to myself. I plan on spending a good part of that time cleaning out Spot's future nursery. Right now the room is occupied by a good portion of Jeramy's stuff, which needs to be consolidated with all of his other stuff in his office. (Have I ever mentioned that my husband has a whole lot of stuff???). I've been given permission to start organizing all this stuff over the weekend provided that I throw nothing away. And while this rule will be tough to abide by, I really want to get started so that we can start painting soon after the big ultrasound later this month. I sure hope Spot isn't bashful.

I made the mittens that match and they were hella small. I then met the designer - she is TINY. Little hands and I'd guess head. I bet someone on Ravelery has good notes on how to make it bigger.

That will be exciting. Cleaning up other people's stuff without being able to throw it away. Atleast it will get you one step closer to getting the nursery in order.

I throw Husband's stuff away all the time when he isn't around and he's never once realized. >:)
Have fun this weekend!!

Better not throw any of my crap out.

Thanks for stopping by and offering encouragement at my blog!

I'll bet you are chomping at the bit to get to that big u/s! It is exciting.

And yes, btw -- you are an amazing knitter! I'm pretty new and only do little things, but I'm SO SLOW!

I'm sure you'll be able to breastfeed if you really want to. It's hard at first, but seriously, after a week or so, it's the easiest thing ever.
