Celebration + Hat

We’ve had a string of good days around here… a beautiful addition to the family in Baby V (Mom is on her way to California right now to meet her new grandbaby!) and then I also got good news from work yesterday.  After many months of doing the work, I got promoted to a new manager position.  Still lots of records and archives and papers and boxes, but with a shiny new title!

It was a call for a happy celebration.  Vegan style.

Celebration Pie - YIP 26:365

Pumpkin pie with a pistachio/graham crust, whipped cream, maple coulis and pomegranate seeds… ooh, the delight!  All thanks to the local vegan eatery, Great Sage!  Oh, you know I love to bake and cook, but I also enjoy when others bake and cook for me :)


In my last post, I mentioned the box of goodies that I sent off to California for Mimi and for Baby V.   I included the Komb blanket, the cardigans, a little hat, and some various things I picked up for lil’ niece.  Realizing that I was not able to finish Mimi’s cardigan by V’s birth, I whipped up a quick hat for my sister.  Spreading the handknit love to the mommy as well as the Teal Tide Hat baby!  … and since Mimi is way over there, and I am way over here, you get me modeling the hat… hopefully I will have photos of her wearing it soon. 

Pattern:  Root Vegetable from Knit One, Embellish Too [book] by Cosy
Yarn: Handspun Merino/Angora blend from MDSW ’09,
Needles: Size US 9

I embellished the hat with about 15 small turquoise buttons.  They are randomly placed around the hat – it turned out quite cute!  Mimi told me she really liked it, and I hope it keeps her nice and warm. 

Ready for Socktoberfest tomorrow?  Nearly 1100 people are in the group on Ravelry! :D

    Lovely news all around! Congratulations on your promotion.

    And what a fine hat you’ve made with all those little buttons. The color goes perfectly with your eyes in that picture (maybe you could make another one for yourself!).

    Congratulations on the new addition! It’s nice to be recognized at work, especially when you’ve already been going above and beyond.

    By the way, your hex blanket turned out so lovely. I don’t blame you for throwing in the towel on the full-size, and it’s nice that you were able to cross it off your list.

    Oh YAY!!! I am SO glad to hear about your promotion and the recognition of your hard work over the last 6+ months. I hope that you really feel proud of yourself for what you’ve accomplished.

    How sweet to include a mommy gift along with the baby gifts! That hat is adorable. I’m sure it will look as good with Mimi’s hair and eyes as it does with yours. Yay!

    What a great hat!

    I have a hat and mittens that I did out of some of Cosy’s handspun that I bought at a craft fair last year. I should find them. It’s getting cold!

    Congratulations on your shiny new niece and your shiny new title.
