LOVE that guy. And it's so true about the lazy part - I don't even comb my hair anymore because it takes so much effort! So my projects lately have been 'lazy' projects where I can sit on the couch and pretty much do nothing. But SERIOUSLY...I have not slowed down until now, so I think I'm entitled to chill for the next little while.

In my lazy, lounging state, I stitched up the softest, coziest little hats! {little scream} and despite what the
photographs might depict, these are so tiny! I made them 'newborn nugget' size and I'm dying from the cuteness. AND...I'm almost done with that cute blanket - excited to get that finished.

IF I can get motivated, today's nesting project is going to be some little booties from Heather Bailey's pattern. I want a HUNDRED of these things!!! I'm excited because I know EXACTLY what I want to do...now if only I could get some motivation ... wish me luck...

The little hats are soooooooo cute.

Sarah said...

Love, Love, LOVE those little hats! So adorable! These are crocheted, right? Do you knit, too? I so need to learn one or the other...or both. ;) (BTW, I'm in MI, too. Livonia, here.)

Abby said...

aw - thanks, girls. Sarah, these are crochet and I'm dying to learn how to knit because I love the way knit looks. I have a tutorial a little ways back on how to start these little hats - grab someone you know who can crochet to walk you through it!

I love Gaffigan. In fact, my husband asked me this morning if I was breastfeeding in the one minute of sleep that I got (I was). Good luck!

Knitting is easy, but it takes me longer then crochet, so I do a mixture of both. Hey, have you seen Monkey Pants! I have a pattern and I am LOVING IT!!!

If you make them in fleece, you need to adjust the legs to be a bit bigger because it won't stretch too much.

those lil hats are super sweet. And they're a lot more than what I accomplish when I'm feeling "lazy."

Heather said...

Pink hat with bow - gorgeous!

Lorie said...

CUTE! And I love Jim!

love all the sweet baby girl colors...she is going to be ONE ROTTEN NUGGET! Not even a celebri-baby will be able to outshine her in all her wonder-wears!

Michelle said...

Pretty please what is the name of the yarn you used for the hats and what is the pattern?
I am DYING to make a couple for my newborn baby daughter! I combed the Internet for an hour or two without luck--I must look in all the wrong places. . . .

JillianBean said...

I am interested to find out what kind of yarn you used too. That pink looks so soft and comfy.

Abby said...

Whew! Finally getting to answering some posts - sorry for the delay. I'm kinda running on fumes at the moment. The hat is just a smaller version of the 'nest blanket' I posted a while back. I've got step-by-step instructions in the tutorial. The yarn is from Jo-Ann's - the pink is that organic cotton stuff and the white is the organic bamboo stuff. I threw away the little labels from the yarn so I can't give you exact names, but I'm pretty sure the pink was from Bernat. Not sure, though!
