IN THE GARDEN ....

Technically, I've been knitting 'peapods'. Yes, that's correct ....PEAPODS!
My dearest friend in California is having her first grandchild soon and I just had to knit up something very special to send to her daughter. I adore Susan B. Anderson's 'Itty Bitty Hats' book and was visiting her blog a few weeks ago. She had the most adorable 'PeaPod Hat' pattern for sale and yes, I purchased it. If you have not been to Susan's blog, do run over there. She's so creative and I love her work. You can find Susan at http://susanbanderson.blogspot.com/

Since I fell in love with the 'peapod hat', I just had to knit this up to send off to my friend's daughter. In addition to the cute little hat, I knit a matching baby blanket and adorned it with a few peapods. I just love the way it turned out. I knit the blanket in the same colors, starting with green, graduating to a mix of blue and green and then a blue center. (She's having a boy!)

I do hope you enjoy seeing my latest knitting project. I'm off to get this in the mail. Please stop by and visit Susan's blog. I'm sure she would love new visitor's!

The 'PeaPod Hat'! I think it's just the cutiest hat!

The complete set! Can you see the graduating colors of green and blue in the blanket?
