Soccer, Horses and Sharks, Oh My

I'm still recovering from our crazy weekend. I think I might need to sleep for a week (like that's going to happen!) There were slumber parties, 3 soccer games, a horse show and we all went to the Shark's Game on Saturday night. What a game it was! The Sharks beat the Flyers 5-4 in over time. It was a very exciting game. All five of us went and my folks came too. We had tickets in three different locations and we'd meet after every period to exchange who was sitting where. I think the folks next to us in all the locations thought we were a little nuts! Horsey Girl looked stylish in her new hat. It is Shark's Teal and turned out quite nicely. She looks adorable in it but then what doesn't she look adorable in? (OK, maybe I'm biased . . . .) This is made out of Nashua Grand Opera. It is sparkly yarn that's still quite soft. I find that to be a rare combination.
Also I received my package from my SP12 Pal. And what a package it was! She had saved it all for the end and the package was jam packed. I just kept unwrapping item after item. There was this adorable sock monkey project bag, a dragonfly wash cloth, a beautiful teal leather notebook, some rust colored Knit Picks sock yarn, fabulous dragonfly stitch markers, an oh-so-cute sock blocker key chain with instructions to make minature socks, purple Malibrigo, Ripped and Frogged glasses from Ravelry, tea and candy! Phew!!! What a haul. THANK YOU Valerie (ptownhokie on Ravelry).

And for those of you who like my photo blog (Hi Mom, Hi Marie!) I know I've taken a bit of a hiatus there but check out my new "Veggies as Art" post.

The Milk Pail always has the best veggies (it looks like there, anyway...)

Sounds like a fun and hectic weekend. The hat looks darling and I also like to take photos of veggies, there is something so appealing about them, too bad photos can't reveal their aromas.

Thank you for checking out my blog. The headband pattern is at this blog. http://kodymayknits.blogspot.com/2008/07/anticonformity-short-row-headband.html Kody May has created some beautiful hat patterns as well and they are all free. I have made all of her headbands and they turned out very nice, I wear them all the time.
