Weekending

I love weekends. Especially when I have an extra day off.  Today was catching up on sleep day and chilling with the pets. Amazing how much they love the simplest thing, yarn. 




I started a few new projects this week.  A kids hat that I want to give to my cousin's boy when they come down in April for a visit.  It's a stash busting project as well to use up some blue so I thought I'd make a cookie monster hat.  Now, it's not finished and face features somewhat attached but my honey says the eye balls looks too big.  Or maybe they should be closer together.  Opinions would be greatly appreciated. It's not the best picture.
And I started on a shawl, Lion Brand Elegant Shawl pattern, thanks to my co-worker who makes wonderful things that I always seem to want to make as well LOL.  The Homespun was only $2.99 a skein in a few colours for a clear out. 
And this coppery colour matches my new hair colour nicely. 
I don't often post pictures of myself but here is my new colour, from blonde to a nice red.  
And still working on these to get done for a gift with the next month. Hoping the joining process won't be too tedious.

Cute little kitties. I think you're right about the eyes on the cookie monster hat - they should be closer together - and also, it looks cute. Your new hair color looks pretty on you. :)
