Beth and I completed our barter today.  Red velvet cupcakes for a baby hat.  Fantastic all around.  The cupcakes were so delicious that Carol ate two.  The hat is made from Cascade 220 Superwash Paints yarn in colorway Jelly Bean double stranded with size 10 needles.  The pattern is called Gnome Baby Hat from the book One Skein Wonders.  I may even have enough yarn left over to knit a pair of baby booties.


My parents flew in this afternoon and will be staying until Saturday.  We’re planning on taking them to Sutro Park tomorrow and the Monterey Bay Aquarium on Thanksgiving day.

My good news for the day: I can walk up the stairs to my apartment faster than my mom!
