Publish Hat Photo

Bev - at - made a new page for the Toronto Baby Hat pattern and added my photo along with another Raverler's photo - I love the 2 pics being there so you can see how the hat looks with different yarns, with the brim down or with it up, with a pom pom or without - cute! Thanks for using my hat's picture Bev!

Toronto Baby Hat

Bev, over at, put a call out on Ravelry for some photos for patterns she had designed.

I made the Toronto Preemie Hat. The pattern was really easy to follow and the hat is super cute! Thanks for the great pattern Bev!

I used Bernat's Baby Jacquard yarn (06317 Easter Basket) - I never knitted with it before and really loved it, I think I might make some booties now.

The world has gone all kinds of crazy

I have spent my whole life being told there are 9 planets... then about 4 years ago, the powers that be decide that Pluto isn't a planet after all

Now the powers that be are trying to convince me that while I have spent 40+ years being told I am a Libra, turns out that I'm really a Virgo because all the Zodiac Signs have been changed

I don't care what they say, I will always be a Libra who believes Pluto is a planet ! So there!

101 Things

I was reading somewhere on and someone posted about the website, it is sort of where you can put your list of things you want to do (somewhat of a Bucket List) but apparently you are supposed to complete these 101 things in 1,001 days.

I have never made, what I prefer to call a Life List, things I want to do - I'm not sure if I have 101 things but I do have several things so I might as well start listing them. Some of them I have accomplished, so I am including those too...I will add to this list as I move along - maybe eventually I will have 101 things...
