Stashbuster #3 and #4

 I actually started this just after Christmas, but I'm counting it for this year's totals because most of the work was done this year. I figured with the baby coming in 5 months, I'd better get started making him some things. It measures about 24 inches across, and I used Oh My! yarn from Plymouth. The pattern can be found here.


 I finished the hat for Tim. This one should fit him a lot better. It should also be warmer; I used Country Loom, a nice, bulky weight yarn. I made the pattern up as I went; if anyone wants a pattern for an extra large hat, I'll post it.

This Florida girl is still adjusting to the cold; it started out at 18 degrees today and has made its way to 30 degrees. I don't think it's supposed to get any warmer today, so I'm staying inside.
Thanks for reading!
Blessings :-)
