Go ahead, "make" my day!

I feel so productive; I've completed three small knitting projects since Christmas! Yesterday I finished the hat from Theresa's merino/camel/silk handspun; it is slouchy and reversible (could also be folded up and worn as a beanie):


Now that I've scratched my knitting itch, I can go back to spinning the rest of my camel down:

That bowl is Rick's most recent, made out of madrone. I need to take some beauty shots of it by itself to show off its shape and color; it has a lot of interest for a usually bland wood! He has another piece of it roughed out, with that rich red streak at the base instead of going across the top.

Last night was Brian's third basketball game in a row as a starter. He's getting more playing time since one of the seniors got injured, and it's showing. Forgot my camera and iPhone at home, though, so no photos!

That's it for today from . . .

I love that hat! Theresa has the best yarn!!! Rick just seems to create more and more beautiful bowls - this one is a stunner.

Cute hat! I love slouchy ones too. Hope it is soft and warm.
Oh and when you tire of some of those bowls, I'm pretty sure the virtual hands will go up for one. Really, Rick should set himself up an Etsy account.... :-)

Good for you for your knitting productivity and good for Rick who keeps turning out beautifully crafted bowls. I know Brian is musically gifted, but does he have any other talent along the lines of you and Rick?

Love the slouchy hat on you. You look like a bona fide model! I look like a dork in almost any hat. I think my head is too big!

Hand made things are always the best as you and your husband prove time and time again. Great job!

A lovely hat - it looks very cozy. The bowl is really beautiful - a great way to highlight the beauty of that wood.
