While Paisley is completely glued to "Elmo's World", I thought I'd type a quick post while I had the chance!

Firstly, I would like to send props out to Samantha for plugging my blog! Like I've already mentioned to her, if I some how become famous, I'm keeping her in mind for my PR person.

After ripping it out 3 times and slight technical difficulties with the ball of yarn, I have decided to make the Irish Hiking Scarf my next project. I started on 5.5mm needles but I've change my mind and am now doing it on 4mm needles. With the type of yarn that I'm using (Red Heart's TLC A'more) you just couldn't see the pattern that great with the larger needles, it just blended in with the ribbing too much and you couldn't see the beautiful cables. It seems like an easy enough pattern so I don't anticipate taking all that long to knit. I'm just anxious to see how it's going to look as the cable pattern progresses.

Now I just need an excuse to put a picture in this post...

Today Paisley was pulling stuff left and right out of her closet, creating quite a mess for me to clean up. As she was digging through things she found this little pink hat with the earflaps (which she will not take off now for some odd reason). She keeps calling it her "Hockey Hat" because we got my brother one of those "Hat Trick Hats" for Christmas (incase anyone is not familiar with these hats, they look like hockey helmets). So now she's all in her glory because she has hat like Uncle Chris' (whom she adores). It's so funny because Ron & I are not really into hockey at all, but she loves it. She has a few old hockey cards that she keeps around to look at, if she sees it on TV she gets all excited and she always wants to skate (even though she's never skated before) and also go watch Uncle Chris play hockey (he's a goaltender).

A little girl after her Uncle's hear I guess.

Thanks for the props. I'm just doing my duty as a fellow knit blogger. :) Paisley is adorable as always. Lily saw her picture just now and was saying "Pasey at home?" and I said "Yup, and if her Mommy is lucky, she's sleeping ..."

I can't wait to see the progress on the Irish Hiking Scarf. I'm 3/4 way through knitting my 2nd one. It's such a great pattern. :)

For the Irish Hiking Scarf I'm using Patons Classic Merino wool on 5mm needles.
