Beanie #2

I finished the second beanie that I was making for my little princess yesterday morning. Now that I have changed the pattern I am much happier with the end result!!

On my way home from work yesterday afternoon I ran in to this lady that I know. She is a very kind hearted women who is always thinking of everyone else! Here's a classic example... She gave me a gift for my daughter yesterday, just because 'she was thinking of us'. Now isn't that just the sweetest thing? Here's a picture of what she gave me....

On another note... I'm now searching for a pattern to make something with this wool from my stash! I was thinking of a red and cream striped beanie, or a cream beanie with a red crochet flower sewn on to the side... What do you think? I'm open to suggestions!

Today's 'Get Happy Now' Tip #11 - Buy a pair of comfy (even outrageously fluffy) slippers. Tired feet get overlooked and respond well to nurturing.

    Thanks, Knitting is just so easy!!! I used to be scared too, but as soon as I learnt the basics I was set. It doesn't take long to get the hang of it. There's still a lot that I don't know!!
