Hat in a weekend

I whipped this hat up for a friend's birthday a few weekends ago. Sweet Scott- Spottie's FAVORITE uncle and the world's nicest guy. I used 2 Lorna's Laces colors from my (out of control) stash. It was fun to knit and only took a Saturday- I used my Turbos, which give me super powers and lightning fast speed.

Other than that, I really haven't been knitting much. We moved into our new house 3 weeks ago, so I've been spending most my time shopping for or making curtains, installing curtain rods- oh yes, all by myself- telling Chris where to hang art work and unpacking. Not to mention working full time and sleeping as much as possible. We find out tomrrow if we are having a boy or a girl, so soon nursery preparations will commence! If its a boy, I'm going to do a nautical/sailboat room, and if its a girl, I'm going to do a pink and green garden with little birds and bugs and flowers. I've been secretly shopping online for fabric in my spare time at work. Shhh, don't tell!

We've already started to receive gifts and hand me downs. We got an almost brand new swing, a basinette, 12 bottles and a sterilizer, a sleep positioner, a travel swing and lots of cute toys from the Bruno/Miller/Lamandola clan. Gammaw sent us a sample pack of cloth diapers. My favorite is the Bum Genius 3.0 One Size Pocket Diaper- doesn't that sound high tech! Its the cutest little thing you've ever seen too.

I'll let you what we see tomorrow on the untrasound!!!
