What do you do with a million little balls of scrap yarn? You make Hudson Hats! I made one for Mary a couple weeks ago, and almost have Ellie's done.

I can finish Ellie's in probably 30 minutes, but I am down to the part which is every knitter's worst nightmare: weaving in the ends. Ugh. I don't know anyone that likes to do it.

Both of them together:

Mary's had hers on and it looks so cute! I'm sure I'll have a picture at some point this winter. Not today though as it's 80 degrees again.

Now I really, really must get working on Christmas gifts! I don't have anything too complicated to do, and I sat down the other night to make a list and see how long it would take to make everything. I think I can do it in a month or less. I want to make Ellie some new longies too.

In other news, Mary has quit napping. I pretty much had a feeling it was going to happen after Ellie arrived, and I was right. The good news is that she goes to bed an hour earlier at night! So at least my evenings are a bit easier. Ellie doesn't go to bed until 10:30 or 11pm though. Ah, life with two kids:).

Mary and I made a zucchini bread this afternoon. Yum! She's a great helper in the kitchen. And I get my anniversary gift tonight--John's picking up take out so I don't have to cook dinner! Yippie!

I really should start on weaving in those ends..........or start a new project.......or something.

i love the hats! they are so cute. i have a hat i've been trying to crochet for about 2 months now... it looks like a round washcloth.
ben has started taking a nap again, but then won't go asleep at night till 10. so, we are likely going back to no nap.
