BackBou Exposed and some FOs

So the BackBou was outed this week as the obsessed baker that he is. Those of us in blogland (and those of us who happen to live with him) have known about his alternative lifestyle for a while now, but let me tell you, it's generating some interest in his attorney world of work. Read the Home Style article here. The print edition has some great pictures of the kids helping to make the pizzas.

In addition to working on the lace scarf and some socks (I'm unfortunately not the uber-sock knitter that Tiennie is!), I was able to finish these hats (for my neighbor's new twins) over my vacation.

Pattern: Cabled Greenspun Beanie from Nature Babies by Tara Jon Manning.
Yarn: Rowan Cashsoft DK in Mirage and Sweet (I think, I'm not sure about the names of the colors)
Needles: US 6s

Notes: I really liked Nature Babies. I checked it out from the library and really enjoyed looking through it. I think I'm going to try to make the soft play bloxes to sell at a RWS festival. Or maybe the stitched moon and star toys. Or maybe the flannel star babies. Or maybe some elfin bonnets. Or ...

What a great article! I forwarded it to my husband, who is also a pizza maker, but in the house ...

I think those hats are great - now I will have to take a look at the book.

First, the hats, they are darling. I wish I had more babies to knit for.

The article about Peter is fantastic. It didn't mention any singed eyebrows or flaming pizzas at all!

What a good article! It makes me want to tell my husband to build an oven in our back yard...for me to use! Those hats are adorable too. We can't all be as fast as Tiennie!

good article on the whole family- the pizza man and the knitting mom- impressive,

Jane and Fritz great travel companions to Alaska and I needed the woolies this past week in Iceland. While everyone else was suffering a heat wave,I was buying an Icelandic winter hat!
