Grab your knitting needles and come relax with me.

The Tulip Blanket was finished on Wednesday and has made its way to the B&M shop.
It was a fun knit and I am sure faster knitters (most every one knitter besides me) it can be done in just a few days....took me three weeks of non-monogamous knitting (which probably explains me knitting so slow ;-) ).
Details- Pattern: Lacy Tulip Blanket Yarn: Three Skeins Yarn Bee Angel Fleece. Needle: US size 15 circulars Size: About 36 inches square
I used just under three skeins and even had enough to almost knit an entire baby hat. I forgot to take a picture of it today...I'll update this post with it tomorrow (hopefully). Lookee a picture!
Amazing: the power of knitting!! With all the technical problems I had this morning--the onl thing that kept my head from bursting open was the calm repetition of knitting the Adamas. I couldn't get too tense because it's lace and lace doesn't not respond well to force.
Unfortunately, the knitting couldn't prevent the headache.
If you stoped by the Other Blog yesterday you know that Lorelei would NOT consent to a hair cut to fix the mess she made of her hair. So I am currently planning on knitting her up some hats to cover up her head. Thank GOD it's getting cool and hats are an appropriate accessory. I have a lace hat on the needles from a year ago (yes still) but I think I made it too big so it should fit her. Only problem is I got lost in the pattern and I hadn't had the will to try hard enough to find my place. NOW I have motivation. I have one other hat idea--but after that I am going to need help. If you know of any resources for cute girlie hats let me know in the comments.
I am toying with the idea of sewing dolly hair to the hats as well I am a total hair mom and this is Murphy's way of sticking it to me.
