A Couple of Gifts

Well you could probably gather that I was knitting a blanket or something of the sort from the previous cryptic posts.  Basically because I wasn't sure if my peep glances at my blog and it was a gift I had to keep it on the DL.  But here it is!  

Pattern: Moderne Baby Blanket by Kay Gardiner and Ann Shayne from Mason-Dixon Knitting
Yarns: Baby Bee Sweet Delight Baby, in Teal too!, Angel, Teddy and some cream color
Needles: 4.0 mm (US 6)
Started: Tuesday, April 20, 2010
Finished: Saturday, May 15, 2010

This was an easy knit.  Although if you noticed one side is wonky because I knit the bind-off on the border a little too tight.  But it is for a baby whom is hopefully going to love it and use it to pieces!  

Pattern: You Seek Yoda Hat (Rav link) by Nancy Lutz
Yarn: Some Green color yarn
Needles: 3.5mm (US 4)
Started: Monday, April 19, 2010
Finished: Tuesday, April 20, 2010

The SO and his friend (the dude counterpart to said pregnant friend), are ENORMOUS Star Wars fans.  Remember back in December when I had to endure the night of symphony ruined with Star Wars?  (Actually I don't hate Star Wars, I just have to keep up a facade so the SO doesn't think I like what he likes).  Well I thought I'd amuse the both by knitting a cute little Yoda hat for baby.  I have to admit, I really think it is adorable.  Ears on hats on babies.  Adorable!      

Also I should let you know -- I am going on vacation!!  I am very excited as this is the first official vaca for the SO and me.  We are attending a wedding of dear friends' in Seattle, and then taking the next week to travel around Oregon!  We were originally debating between Vancouver or Oregon.  And, well, I have always had this odd fascination with Oregon (and Arizona... I'll make it there someday).  So we decided to do an Oregon road trip.  So I will probably not blog at all next week.  If I am good I will try to have a post scheduled for next Wednesday and maybe of my travel projects.  But I can't guarantee due to work schedule and getting ready for the trip.  But have no fear when I return get ready for LOTS pictures and posts of the trip!  

So excited... can you tell!?!?!
