Lucky Me!

The "Grow Your Own Blog Party" has been so much fun!
We're all making new friends, following new and wonderful blogs and prizes are
being delivered to lucky recipients.  I sent a prize yesterday to the lucky winner of my blog give-away.
And, I received the prize that I won on the "Knitalatte" blog.

The hat was cute on her blog but when I opened the packaged I gasped at how beautiful it is.
Just look at the pretty colors in this soft, squooshy yarn...

I tried to take a picture of myself wearing it but just couldn't get a good one.  
It's hard to hold the camera just right and hold my head at the right angle to get a good shot.
So, here's a picture of the hat laying on my buffet...

An added plus is that it's a little slouchy.  I've been wanting to make a slouchy hat.

Thank you so much, Karen!  I love it!  
I'm planning to wear it to knit night tonight.  :-)

Hop on over to her blog for a visit.  It's a beautiful blog with lots of wonderful hand knit projects.
You'll love it!  Be sure to say, "hi" when you're there.

Your new hat is adorable and looks as though it will be really warm. As cold as it is tonight it would feel good. Enjoy your new treasure. Have a great day. Your Missouri Friend.
