What a great weekend

My dear friend Mary was in town from Friday till today. We toddled around town yesterday, scarfed some Herfy's burgers, watched a movie and chatted and gabbed and caught up with each other's goings-on.

It was delightful.

We went into Seattle and here is some of what we saw.

I was on a bit of a deadline for a baby shower on Monday, the 17th. I did manage to finish this up this evening, and I'm quite pleased. It's the second time I've used this pattern, and my Kitchener stitch for closing up the top is VASTLY improved from my first attempt. The pattern is here. The yard, a gift from the generous KT is Berrocco Foliage. Mmmmmmm.

I hope that everyone had a weekend as nice as mine was. Call someone you love and tell them so.

And Happy St. Pat's tomorrow to all and sundry, especially to my redhead. Happy 12th, sweetie! According to our crazy list, 12th anniversary is Spackle. Food for thought.

Love the hat, thanks for the link to the pattern. I have a grandchild coming and am in baby knitting mode. Thanks, too for visiting my blog. My photos are from So. Arizona, Green Valley actually.
