Soaking up some vitamin D

My little guy loves to sleep in the sunniest spots.  You'd think he was working on his tan.

Happy Thanksgiving!!!

I stayed up last night making pies.  They look so yummy and as happens every year they need to be guarded from my DH.  He always threatens that a piece of pie may go missing overnight.


While the pies were baking last night I finished crocheting a little cap, Boyfriend Beanieby Melissa Horozewski.  I used Universal Yarn Bamboo Sock.  I read that the cap tended to run on the small side, so I made the larger size and went up a hook size but it still turned out too small.  I'm hoping it will fit my youngest niece.  The ssc (shallow/split single crochet stitch) is a bit of pain to do, I can't crochet as fast as I normally do when making this stitch because it's hard to insert the hook into the stitch if your gauge is a little tight.  If I was to make it again I would use an even larger hook and try to crochet very loose.  But I do love the look of the stitch.


On a different note I purchased an Amaryllis bulb at the store last weekend for the holidays.  It's already started sprouting and I can't wait until it fully blooms.
