First, there were the "dozen roses"
(chocolate covered strawberries actually)
Follow that up with a Skype session from the best Daddy-Valentine ever
It was a good Valentine weekend for Mindy and Peanut! (Also for those around to "help" eat the strawberries!)
As a bonus, Pretty finished the letter O! The other vowels were not quite sure about this donut-shaped addition to the family. . .
But, hey!. . .it's a donut-shaped letter. . .who wouldn't learn to love that?
Another item in the "Finish Department" over the weekend is this hat:
It's a hat for Peanut, but you may notice that Peanut is not wearing it. That's because this is the hat with the unique distinction of being the first hand-knit that Peanut has absolutely, unequivocally and without any doubt, refused to wear. . .lol!
I put it on her several times, and it fits snugly (as it should, to keep her head and ears warm). Every time I do, she sticks her fingers up in the brim immediately, ripping it off and throwing it as far as her little arm can throw (I think she may be a fast-pitch superstar someday) grunting, making the face and slapping her thigh as the hat flies! Considering her opinion of the hat, I think I am gonna skip the mittens for now, and find another recipient for this stunning piece of purple-ness that I so lovingly knit. . .anyone have a baby girl who needs a hat?
So, there you have it. A new letter to love, and an new hat to hate. . .happy heart day to me! I hope that your holiday was everything you wanted it to be, and that chocolate was somehow involved.
Thanks for stopping by, and Knit in Good Health!
