Play-Doh & Knitted Hats...

Saturday, after dad's "non-surgery", I ended up just hanging out with my parents.  Watching a movie & knitting away.  I had taken yarn & a pattern to make a hat for the twins.  It was just a little bit later when the phone rang & my brother was coming over with the twins.  It was perfect timing too because I was finishing up the hat too...

When they got there, first things are first & we had to do some playing first! .... Break out the Play-Doh!!!!!

Here is one of my beautiful creations... dont be jealous of my mad Play-Doh skills...

Then Madi said she wanted to make a snail.  But then she said, "Aunt Bec, can you make the head?" - so I made the head... "Aunt Beck, can you make the eyes?" - I made the eyes... it continued on with the smile, the antennaes & then "Can you make the body?" ... & I made the body.  Madi then made the purple thing that she poked on the side & then she ran to my mom & said, "Yaya, look at the snail I made!!!" .... & she was so proud!  I had to laugh!  She has management in her blood - I see her being a boss of a company one day.

Then I got back to work & finished up the hat for Sophia

I think it came out perfectly!!!

I love the back of it as well...

I asked Madi if she wanted one too... she just looked & said, 'ummm.... no" ... so I asked her if she wanted a scarf?  no... mittens?  no... socks? no...  finally, I changed it & asked if she wanted chocolate?  no... potato chips?  no... want me to make another snail out of Play-doh?

Sophia on the other hand thought this hat was better then anything.  She told me, "Aunt Bec, if you happened to sneak into my house in the middle of the night, & came up in my room to take my picture... you'll see I'm sleeping in this hat" .... first of all, why would she think I'd sneak in her house?  Much less take pictures of her sleeping?  The minds of kids...

But my brother did text me today & said that she has literally wore the hat for 3 days & has, in fact, slept in it!!!!  Ahh - does my heart good.  Makes me want to knit the world for her!

I love those girls....
