It's the Noro Silk Garden Beanie! And you didn't even know I was working on it.

This is SO not for 10%. I'll cast on again and see if I can come up with something (1) less rainbowy and (2) for a larger noggin. Not that he doesn't appreciate the rainbows. Just not what I had in mind.

It will, however, make a lovely winter cap for spiderman.

It fits nuttnbunnies too. If I made it for an adult again I would definitely add a little to the length. Making it less beanie-like and more hat-like.


Fairly Odd Mother gave me an award! I love awards! My favorite!! And to thank her I'm going to... well, thank her. :-) I totally heart her. Stop by to wish her a Happy 40th!

I think these gals ROCK!


Ladies - you really do it.

I know, I know. There are so many more. Hard core rockers with blogs of fury. But at some point you just have to stop typing. Well.. that and you're supposed to tag five.


Rockingness must be genetic. This is Z, last night, after running through the sprinkler, fully clothed and singing, at the top of his lungs "Everything I do gonna be funky from now on!"


These are the most recent babies from the garden. So tiny. So delicious.

I've made a committment to Pay it Forward and suggest you do the same. All comments left by the end of the month will be entered in the drawing to be the object of my affection. Multiple comments = multiple entries. At this point I'm planning on drawing 3. Only catch is - you have to promise to Pay it Forward yourself and post as such on your blog.

Jeez - that's a lot for one post. Trying to fit it in b/c I know I won't post again until after the Triathlon. Go Team Cupcake!!!

I like the beanie - it's not ROYGBIV, so it doesn't scream rainbow to me. I like the richness of the colors too.

Reading about the funky singing made me smile. ;)

Hi Nuttn! Thankyou for such a helpful comment on my blog re the spinning! Shows that I must indeed do more research into spinning and elarn some new techniques! I'm definately going to give the centre-pull ball tip a try :) Thankyou!!

And I'm so inspired by checking out your blog! I've been hankering to start a vegie garden, and you may just have pushed me over the edge, with those lovely luscious vegi photos! And Pay It Forward has me VERY inspired! Might just have to sign on for that one! :)

I love the colours in the beanie! But I'm all about COLOURS. They make me smile. :) The Pay It Forward Looks very interesting... I may have to sign in as well... hmmm...

Love the beanie. I've been wanting to knit something with noro for a while- good to know one skein will knit a (smallish) hat- it's so expensive in NZ (or is that everywhere?) Perhaps I wouldn't go for the rainbow look myself either, but I think it suits spidey to a T! Thanks for the rocking girl love- you aren't half bad yourself :)

Oh, thinking of the triathalon is making me a little tired! The beanie is over the top cute...oh, I love it!

I love the look on your little guy's face in that first photo!

Payin' it forward. . .hmmmm. . .I may just have to try this. Maybe when I get back from vacation. I'm supposed to be planning what to pack right now!

The hat is very cute on both of you! I cracked up about the sprinkler song.

I like the beanie! You are rockin'!

Lindsey said...

Maybe I just have an inexplicable love of Noro, but I also like the hat. I do agree that if you were to re-do it for an adult that added length would be nice. Also, I would like to add that rocking kids are, by far, the best kind!

I just noticed that I didn't actually read this whole post and wait, what....You said I rock! (I'm getting all blushy) Thanks Tasha, back at you!
