Summer's almost here

Tomorrow is my last day of school!! Yay! I haven't posted in forever because I've been busy. On Saturday we went to Madison (it rained a TON and there were tornado warnings and we went to Applebees to watch the Belmont Stakes but Big Brown sucked and got last place.) We went to Lakeside Fibers and I bought a skein of Blue Sky Alpacas Organic Cotton in the color Nut. It is for the Baby Bolero from the One Skein book. We went to the library today so we could get the book but someone had it checked out so I had to request it so I can't start it tonight. :( I started a Garterlac Dishcloth instead. :)
I also made a baby sweater for a layette at my church with Caron Simply Soft.

I made a whale from Bittersweet's pattern.
Last night I finished my Odessa hat! I used the Cascade 220 that I dyed with Kool-Aid. It is a really easy pattern. I cast on 90 stitches since I was using worsted weight yarn and I didn't add beads. I also added another inch of ribbing so it would cover my ears better. The funny thing about the hat is that right now it is 51 degrees F outside and windy and cloudy so it is actually cold enough to wear it outside!
