2 FO's in 1 Weekend!!!

Wow! I managed to finish not 1 but 2 things this weekend. I have been working on a scarf for a friend at work (she purchased the yarn and I just knit it up for her)...and the only reason why is because she was planning on holding my scarf hostage until she got one of her own. We have tried to convince her that she needs to learn herself, but she is definitely one that appreciates the 'hand knit' so it's ok. Here is a picture of her wearing it but her head has been removed to protect the innocent (cough, cough)!

Also, I have a friend who just had her first baby - a baby girl. This friend is not a girly-girl, pink wearing girl, so I whipped up a precious little hat for her in purple! I found a pattern on line doing just a simple search and love it!

The pattern that I used is called "A Little Hat" and it knit up so cute and very quick! I used the yarn that she called for, Lambs Pride Worsted, and the color is Wild Violet, I think...but I'm not 100% sure of that because of course the ball band is at home.

The rest of the weekend was rather uneventful, and that's just the way I like it. My oldest son was home from college (I think just an excuse to have his laundry done, but he did work a bit as well) so the house was a little busier than usual...
BUT...It's going to be a GREAT WEEK! The first shipment of Socks That Rock should be on their way, flying to the mail box closest to me! Well, me and loads of my sock-addicted friends! We are all counting down and waiting, albeit not very patiently, for the first packet of Sock Club 2007! The excitement is building and building...and trust me, photos will be published as soon as the first shipment makes it into my greedy little hands.
And I just wanted to share this picture...the large bed is actually the one that we got the dog for Christmas, but the cat thinks that she runs things and I think the dog is a little afraid of her. The smaller bed is the cat's bed and it's the one the dog used when he was a puppy.

Love the scarf and the baby hat. And the picture of the dog and cat is hilarious! :-)
