That's actually not as weird as the brother thing

Hey there good peeps! I thought I'd pop out a quick blog post to let you all know what I've been up to. First of all, I wanted to let you know that I have chosen a name for my snail. This is big news, yes? Stephanie told me that her son was calling him Heinrich, so I asked her to please ask him if I could keep it, as I think Heinrich is a BRILLIANT name for a snail. She said that he said it was ok with him, as long as I pronounce it the German way. I'm pretty sure I am, so Heinrich it is! He also told me that I should "take care of my salad" which I'm assuming means to watch my salad. So cute!!

I started a different tablecloth for my mom out of laceweight that I dyed for MS4 but since I'm not making it, I decided to use it for this. The pattern is called "Mommes Lysedug" which translates, I think, to "Mothers give out light" which is just really really beautiful. Here's what it looks like so far.

I've also been all about the baby hats lately. Can't get enough. See?

The top one is a Zeebee, and the yarn is Dreambaby DK, on size 5 needles. It's for Angie's future baby girl, Clair. The bottom two are both this pattern (rav link) in Bernat Baby Jacquards, on size 3. I LOVE them. A lot. I want more of them. Lots and lots more of them.

As you can see in the picture of the tablecloth, my sister got me a manicure for my birthday. Well, the paint was all chipping so I wanted to redo them, but my hands were too unsteady to do red, it looked like crud, so I did this.

How cool are they? :)

Have a good weekend!!!
