Just an update

Edited to show pic:
While I was waiting for the kitchen floor to dry, I finished the hat. Now I can vacuum the rug.
This is what I made for Millie's goddaughter Tara's baby Jayden.
Hat pattern used: Fran M's baby Hat Pattern The pattern says to k2 P2 rib for 6". I only did 4". One reason being Jayden is so small and the 2nd reason is because I wanted to make sure I had enough yarn. The hat measures just about 5" in height total. 4" wide.
Yarn used: baby Boutique # 6516. (Sure wish they had names)
Knitting needles used: size 6
Bootie pattern: Easy Knitted Booties Booties measure 3" high and 2 3/4" foot length
Yarn used; Baby Boutique
Knitting needles used: size 6
Not sure of a title so we'll just go with that.
Sandie sent out an email to the group that Millie's goddaughter had a baby. Not just a baby but a tiny 1lb 7oz baby! That is so tiny! So people are sending hats, booties & blankets. I went to my lys and asked Linda what is the best yarn to use. I told her the size of Jayden and that it had to be soft. It also had to be light weight because they live in Florida. She brought me over to the baby yarn. Oh My! It is so soft! I have booties made already and am just about done with the hat which I'll post a pic of as soon as I'm done. I think Tara will like this. The name of the yarn is Baby Boutique by Plymouth Yarn. It's 50% Microfiber and 50% Nylon. Size 7 needles are recommended but, I am using size 6. I also couldn't resist getting Baby Bunny also by Plymouth Yarn. It's 60% Pima Cotton, 30% Modal (have no idea what that is), and 10% Angora. All of the yarn is machine wash & machine dry.

Rachel made fajitas yesterday afternoon, as Doug and Steve had to work. Later in the day, I was wondering what I was going to have to eat. I knew they opened a Chick-Fil-A up at the mall. We have never been. So I said to Rach.. how about going to Chick-Fil-A? She was thrilled to say the least. The people who work there are so pleasant! The place was so clean! The food was so good! Real chicken fillet? and the waffle fries? to die for! I will be going back. While we were eating, I told Rach how my friend Sandie down in La. goes to Chick-Fil-A all the time. I'm sure I made sound like she lives there but, it seems she posts about it a lot. I can now see why she does. This will not be my last visit! I had the #2 meal. Chicken with lettuce, tomato, and American cheese. Oh My! This is no McDonald chicken that's for sure! I left very happy. Also.. on July 9th, if you come dressed as a cow, (it's cow appreciation day), you'll get a free sandwich. How cool is that. lol

Well I guess that's it for now. Mike is coming down for the weekend and I still have a couple of things left to do. Wash the kitchen floor and vacuum the living room rug. Rach & I worked hard yesterday getting things done. Not like it needed to be done anyway. It's just nice to have a little motivation. lol

Have a safe and happy 4th weekend! 5 years ago we used to sit in our front yard to watch the fireworks at the stadium at the University of Delaware. The trees have grown since then and now find we have to walk across the street. lol They put on a very good show of fireworks. I look forward to it every year.

Until next time...

Chick-fil-A is my favorite place in all the world. LOL I wish there would be one next door. I would never cook again. They're even open for breakfast and when we go to Houma for an overnighter I get nuggets for breakfast. Yum. :-)

I also love that yarn. The colors are just beautiful. Nice job!
