Why, Fran, where have you been? Well, exhaustedly pregnant to tell you the truth. At this point, getting anything done beyond basic necessary tasks and childcare is just… hard. My plan each day is to get through each day, and hopefully that involves taking a nap. Ugh, I don’t want to be the lazy, exhausted pregnant lady, but there I am.
That isn’t to say I haven’t done anything at all FRILLING or creative or fun lately. I have, just more slowly. Like…

Keepin’ it Frill, people. That’s what it’s all about.
Happy Labor Day! We spent the entire weekend at our house doing the 3-day Potty Training program, with great success; Little B is totally enthused about using the potty. But I did manage to work in some knitting in between Potty Dances, and I took the opportunity to finish up this adorable bunny hat for a sweet little boy who is yet to arrive. I hope he and his Mama love it. I know I do, and plan to knit up the pattern a few more times for the small crowd of new arrivals we have amongst our friends these days.
The pattern is from my much-loved (ok, well, I stole it from my mom) copy of Susan B. Anderson’s Itty Bitty Hats, and I knitted it in Sugar ‘n Cream self-striping cotton yarn. I have a great love for self-striping yarn.
Can’t wait to see this hat on the little guy. (I’m totally spoiling the surprise, but if your initials are P.D. this hat is coming your way!)
More hats to come….
And check back tomorrow for our first-ever completely Frilling blog giveaway!
