Pattern: Whitecaps Hat by Emily Wessel
Yarn: Cascade 220 Heathers
Needles: US 6 and 7 circulars
I LOVE this pattern. I made the bulky weight version and loved it, and really wanted to try it in worsted. The pattern is written for three different yarn weights. This hat is for a friend and I am hoping to mail it off very soon with a few added goodies.
I double dipped into two KALs, my first FOs for both! :)

Scott's FO is a tv stand that he built from a pallet!
I am so proud of him! He started taking apart pallets earlier this summer and since then he's built a coffee table, two little end tables, and now this tv stand. At first he only used hand tools, but for this last project he borrowed a miter saw from his dad. I love to watch his process, from sketching out his ideas, to the deconstruction, to the building :)
Since one of my goals this year is to cook at home more often, I thought I would share a few of our recent meals.
This is my favorite meal, scalloped potatoes with ham. I used my grandma's recipe. She always made it for my birthday :)
Chicken and mushroom casserole (kind of) with biscuits on the top. It was very good, and so simple, but next time I would definitely add more veggies!
This one was also ridiculously simple, but so good. We don't cook seafood at all, but we both like to eat it...go figure!
While I am talking about goals, I am only four books away from reaching my fifty books read goal this year! woot! Most recently, I just finished Agatha Christie's Sleeping Murder, a Miss Marple book. Highly recommended for its eerie scenes.
Happy Wednesday! What have you finished lately?
