adding in a few hours later – technically we should call this the never ending blog posts since I seem to keep coming and adding this, that, and a pool table to it. I promise I will try to remember to add every single little teensy tiny bit this time. lol (but I can make no real guarantees)
So, other than a baby hat I made for my cousin’s wife in the beginning of April I have not made anything new. (Note to self – message cousin’s wife to find out if she can send me a picture of said hat) After I finished the hat I got it stuck in my head that I wanted to try my hand at lace… and I was having no luck on it… at all. Then one night I had a light bulb moment. I’ve been using the chart version of the patterns, because, as everyone told me, once I learned to read them they were soooo much easier than reading the actual word patterns. But I noticed something the other night, all the patterns, the row numbers, were odd. When I finally realized this I re-read through the notes before the pattern and realized I wasn’t adding a plain knit row between the ones the pattern showed. God I felt stupid when I saw that. lol
Now that I figured out my stupid mistake I’m working on a new hat. (Shocker I know. lol) I’m not sure if it’ll be for Belly or not yet. I’ve combined two patterns on this hat. One is from a toddler/baby knit hat book. It’s for a plain rolled edge hat. The other one I’m using is for a fern lace wash cloth. (It’s pattern #2) It’s combining beautifully, but I just couldn’t get a good picture were the design shows up well, but here’s the best one I got:
I’ve got the fern pattern repeating twice on each needle, and the stitches are spread over 3 needles, so it repeats 6 times on the hat. I’m half-way through the first set of the repeat.

We went to Disney World for a week in June of 2007. It was a tradition that when a grandchild turned 7 my mom’s parents would take the whole entire family to Disney World. Well, in 2007 my cousin Danielle turned 7 and so off we all went. (And by all I mean all 15 of us)
