The progress that is soon to be gone....

I hate to think of ripping out both of these beautiful little sections - but I know I must or forever know that I did a half-assed job of making this hat that I love....

What have I gotten myself into?

Sorry for the mystery post... I took the picture with my blackberry yesterday and then e-mailed it to the blog intending to edit and add the description last night... yeah, that didn't happen...

So here it is...

A good friend of mine who make incredible gingerbread houses and the most amazing cakes has convinced me to make something to enter at the state fair.

So I chose this pattern - called Flore. I am using my favorite yarn from Sublime.

I had taken the picture to show my progress and was going to post another one today. But then I realized as I was about to join the first two sections that I had done the decreases completely wrong... so what was my progress picture for today is no more...

This is a video of the recent flooding in the town where I grew up and my family still lives. I've never seen water like this - and it is still rising.

Somehow I managed to survive the whirlwind trip to Paris... It is as wonderful as I remebered...

Didn't really get to do much outside of work stuff - but it's still fabulous just being in such an amazing city.

We stayed at a wonderful little hotel called Le Relais Du Louvre. LOVED IT!!! It was literally across the street from the Louvre and a block away from the Pont Nuef bridge.

I took a couple of pictures with my phone - just have to get them downloaded.

One huge casualty of my trip is the nursing.... I took my pump but between the plane rides and the long work days - my milk production is almost nothing... Poor little Eli might be getting a crash course in weaning if it doesn't work it's way back to where I was when I left.

Pea Pod Hats

I did these two adorable little hats by special request for a woman with twin girls! They turned out much, much better than I thought they would.
