I love Lorna's laces. This bulky knit up into a tam quickly…as in one night. I cast on 50 stitches. I did the brim in size 10s and the body in 11s.
1 by 1 rib for 6 rows.
Increases every other stitch on the next row.
Knit until it is 7 inches.

It is even sweeter on, but it is too early for pictures of me this morning. I'll spare you.
Squee!!! Laura was bottling the only surviving kitten dumped at the shelter last week. This little girl is feisty and strong.
I will bottle kittens someday.
Not yet. You have to get up and bottle them every 3 hours when they are this little.
Loved this heart at a recent art fair.
I love blues on blues.
Okay so I have a few more things to chat about today -
#1 Has anyone used a yard mosquito killer before a party?
Did it work well?
We are having a big bbq this weekend and the mosquitos are out in force. We will put out the party tent but we have to do something else so everyone won't get bit up. West Nile is surfacing again in this area….so I can justify harsh chemicals for one day of the year…
Can you tread water? I was in my neighbor's pool the other night.
I just go to the deep and tread water while my neighbor sits on the side of her pool. I tread for over an hour without batting an eye. I am very buoyant. :) Everyone is so amazed at this, I am not.
Are you a treader?
I made Ina Garten's gazpacho Monday.
It was so delicious.
I was amazed that it was so darn good.
I think following her measurements precisely was key.
I'm meeting up with a pretend friend today for the first time!
I'm so excited that this is working out.
Fireman and I are meeting Judy and Dick from
Stitch Along With Me
There will be photos!
