We are here again at finished object Friday and while I haven't made a ton of headway on some of the WIPs I talked about on Wednesday and I started another one last night [oops :-) ]. I do have a project that I finished very early Saturday morning (like 1 AM early). You may remember this post from the beginning of the month and I updated a bit throughout the month as well but now it's done.
|That's me. Don't you love my new glasses?|
This hat was a really easy knit and I will definitely make it again but I think I will cast on more stitches to make it a bit bigger and looser. It's supposed to be slouchy but it's more form fitting than slouchy. [Or maybe I have a bigger head than I thought ;-)]
|Aren't the buttons adorable?|
I may have mentioned but green is my favorite color. I love spring or kelly green. It tends to be flattering and brings out the green in my eyes. I also have wristlets in my queue to go with the hat but I want to get some other stuff done first. I do have the yarn though and I think it compliments the hat well, don't you?

In other news, I do hope to expand my content a bit. Here are some details on what's to come (don't you just love lists?)
- I am going to try and capture what I am reading. I read so quickly that taking pictures about it will really require me to be on top of things.
- More cooking and baking. I must remember to keep my camera with me at all times!
- I hope to talk more about my memories and upcoming adventures.
- Pictures. I have a new camera and I need to get out there and find awesome stuff and capture it
