Polar Bear Club

I have been in a Spring cleaning mode around here-all the windows are sparkling clean and I have been emptying corners and removing clutter!  Be forewarned-don't hold still too long or you might be scrutinized for the dump pile!!!!

Today was a lovely afternoon knit with Mom and Linda;  I started to knit this little hat.  I found the pattern this morning and knew I had an orphan skein in the cotton basket.  Yup, Lion Brand Organic Cotton that was never used.  It was perfect to make a cute newborn hat!
                                         I finished it tonight while watching African Queen!
 And it was a bit of a race but I managed to squeak out a second hat with just a yard to spare!  I love living on the edge!
