Ribbed Crochet Stocking Hat (by Teresa)

This is my version of the Ribbed Crochet Stocking Hat by Teresa. I really like the way it turned out. I did make some changes, but the general idea is the same. My rib stitch is in the back loop only on each row instead of in the stitch under the loops. I did learn how to make a foundation chain (really cool!) and sewing up the seam to make it invisible (mostly). Thanks, Teresa!

Learn to Crochet is a really good blog and I've been lurking around for a few weeks watching her videos on youtube and looking through the patterns on her blog.

Heart Shaped Cheddar Parmesan Biscuits

Hmmmmm, what to make for dinner...?
I had no idea the other day. I kind of wanted soup, but I'd already had a sandwich and couldn't eat another one and there wasn't enough "real" cheese to make a grilled cheese anyway. What is "real" cheese? Well, it doesn't come individually wrapped in slice form...
Hmmmm, I kind of wanted biscuits so within moments I'm dialing the phone...
"Mom? Do you know your biscuit recipe off by heart?" Less than twenty minutes later we had heart shaped cheddar parmesan biscuits and tomato soup on the table. I even added some milk to the tops to give them a nice shine and added fresh cracked pepper and kosher salt to the tops of the ones I was going to eat.

Tasty. Yummy. So good with the soup! Thanks, Mom!

Mini Green Ski Hat for Bibby

A little while ago I bought baby soft green yarn to make Olivia (aka "Bibby") a little ski hat. It took me only a few hours to make it and I thought it would fit her since it was a little too big for Honey Doll, but when I put it on...D'oh! Too big! Bibby is about a full day old in this picture and you can see just how loose the hat fits her. I chucked it into the crib at home and left it there until tonight...

Tonight I tried it on again to see just how much she's grown over the last eleven days and to my shock and surprise she's gotten big enough that the hat fits! It fits! It fits! Hurrah!
