Finished Knitting the Journeyman Hat

 Hello Friends,

I hope you are doing well. Liam and I watched the eclipse today from our rooftop terrace. My mother-in law gave us glasses to watch. We saw when the sun was partially covered, then it just got dark and we couldn't see anything. It was fun to watch and be able to see part of it through the glasses. I finished knitting the Journeyman hat today! I knitted a lot of it last night and then decreased and bound off today. I love how comfortable it is and love the look of the slouch. It is my favourite style of winter hat to wear. 


Pattern: The Journeyman Hat by Alyssa Grieve on Ravelry

Yarn: Loops & Threads in colorway Carousel Twist 

Needles: 6 mm circular needles and 6 mm dpns to decrease

Notes: I cast on with 6 mm needles and I just knitted the pattern without the extra slouch. My notes on Ravelry here

Thank you for visiting my blog today! I really enjoyed knitting this hat and I am looking forward to casting on another project soon. I am still thinking of what it will be and will share it with you next Sunday!

Have a great day!

Knitting the Journeyman Hat, Easter Basket for Baby, and Reading On

 Hello Friends,

I hope you are doing well. I have had a busy week with Evan and getting ready for Easter dinners this weekend. We will be hosting my family on Sunday, so I am getting things ready. Today I tested out a recipe for Easter in my new crock pot. I am making chicken for Easter and found a lemon chicken slow cooker recipe by Slow Cooker Gourmet called Slow Cooker Chicken thighs with creamy lemon sauce. It turned out great and Evan ate a lot of it which I always am so happy about. 

I have been knitting the Journeyman hat by Alyssa Grieve on Ravelry. I love knitting this hat it has been so relaxing and it also fits comfortably so far. 

I love my weekend mornings they still feel different than during the week. Last weekend I liked knitting with Millie snoozing beside me it is the perfect moment that I just take a minute to appreciate. I had my coffee, knitting, Evan on the monitor, Millie beside me, and watching a YouTube video.

I put together Evan's Easter basket today to see what I have and happy to be done picking out gifts for him. It is fun putting together these baskets. I collected items from different shopping trips when I could go out which is sometimes hard to come by with a baby lol. I also have some gifts for my nephew as well and we'll have an Easter egg hunt.

I also got Millie these cute yarn ball catnip toys from Winners. She always gets a present for holidays as well. 

Evan has been enjoying reading and flipping the pages books before bed. He is now 15 months almost 16 months old next week. He is starting to babble a lot more and can say some words like "up". We keep working on Mama and Dada. He is getting close to saying them. It will be special when he finally does. He is walking around now on his own and eating mostly on his own except I pre-load a spoon for him. I am so proud of him and he is such a fun, goofy, sweet little guy we love him so much.

I am still reading The Whole-Brain Child by Dan Siegel and Tom Lake by Ann Patchett. I have been enjoying these books reading before bed. 

Joining along with As Kat Knits for Unraveled Wednesday.

Thank you for visiting my blog today! I hope that you are having a good week so far. Have a good weekend if you are celebrating Easter as well.

Have a great day!

Knitting The Journeyman Hat and Reading On

 Hello Friends,

I hope you are doing well. I had a good weekend we just stayed home most of the time and relaxed. It is nice having those weekends to recharge for the week ahead. It was a bit cold this weekend for a walk with Evan. 

I have been continuing to knit the Journeyman Hat by Alyssa Grieves on Ravelry. It has been a fun knit so far. I love how it is turning out with the colorful yarn I am working with. 

On Sunday I snapped this photo enjoying coffee out of one of my favourite mugs that was a gift after we had Evan. It is the Mother mug from Indigo. They have similar ones for Father as well and other family members. Liam has the Father mug so sometimes we match mugs in the morning. I was working on knitting the hat and snuggling with Millie beside me I love these slow and relaxing moments to for myself when Evan is napping and helps me to have my me time and recharge for getting Evan when he wakes up and being present with him. 

I am reading The Whole Brain Child by Daniel Siegel and Tom Lake by Ann Patchett. I am enjoying both books and reading when I find the time mostly at night after Evan goes to bed and before I go to bed.

Thank you for visiting my blog today! Hope you have a great week!
