what a week

It's friday already? What a week, huh!
On tuesday night, we ate dinner around the coffee table in the family room. Chicken noodle soup with sleeves of Ritz crackers. We watched as states filled with blue and red and history was made.  I am sure MLK was smiling. 
I made Erin's hat.  1 ball Zitron Loft from the stash.  A great pattern, perfectly written, and cute to boot!  I think I will have one on the needles from now until Christmas.  Rose Hill hats for everyone.
And the cookie.  This is the second week I made Sandy's delicious cookie.  Cute as a button, huh?!
Have yourself a wonderful weekend!

ooh! I love it in the brown. I'm casting on another one for my sick day knitting. Orange this time.

I think it's funny that we took exactly the same picture of our hats.

Not quite everyone cheered. It's nice of Obama to promise us everything we want....just don't forget we will also pay for it all with our tax dollars. ouch.

Love the hat!!

Funny how a change in colour can make all the difference. I was a bit "meh" about this pattern when I first saw it, but I LOVE it in brown. Also, I think your bobbles are a bit bigger which I like.

You're right about the world cheering on Tuesday night. I know we were, here in Canada!

Very cute hat! I love the bobble trim.

My needles are going to be very busy from now til Christmas -- I predict that I'll knit a Rose Hill hat or two, as well.

Hege said...

I love the hat! The bobbles are adorable. Lucky girls who will get one for Christmas from you! Thanks for the link to the noodle soup, it looks delicious.

Sandy said...

I'm so glad you liked them, Leslie.
The hat is really pretty. The bobbles scare me though.....but the pattern did seem to describe them well. I would love to make one of these this year....if I can muster up the courage I will try it.

The A.D.D. Knitter said...

Ritz crackers and soup? That is my kind of meal! Love your hat with the bobbles:)

ali said...

All right, now I'm going to have to try these too... so glad fall is here, I forget over the summer how much I love to bake!

And cook soups... I always love a good soup recipe.

Happy knitting-
ali

Cracker sleeves and button cookies? Add in your chapeau which, though not edible, is still a major YUM!

What a week indeed! I love seeing this hat all over the neighborhood. I seriously need to make it.

I got a stewing hen from the farmers maket and made chicken soup last night and it was delicious. And more apple pie. That's a whole 'nother story though. :)

How did I miss a whole post?! I HATE when that happens. Well anyway, I'm here now, and have to tell you that I JUST yesterday saw that hat in the Garnet Hill catalog and was like, wow, that's kinda cute, someone should make that... and well, there you are. Too cute. OK. Off to check out the cookies, now.
