Knit Hat

I have been totally playing with blogger and flickr, trying to figure out how to easily enlarge my photos without too much html knowledge.

If anyone out there knows how to do this simply please let me know. This is a little baby hat I knit on the weekend. My husband's sister is pregnant and I thought I would knit up something for her for Christmas. The little crochet flower can be taken off if it is a boy. I made the pattern up myself after spotting it on this blog. I just fell in love with that wee hat and could not for the life of me find a pattern on the web so I winged it.

I am still reeling from the discovery of the horrid conditions at the Toronto Humane Society. Yesterday, it was discovered that the food they have been feeding the animals is over six years old. I just cannot comprehend that there was not any kind of supervision or governing body keeping an eye on this organisation. Who watches the watchers?

Thanks for popping in and listening to my drivel ;)

i was shocked and upset at the last post, why do ppl behave like this, those little creatures were depending on them for kindness and love....its dreadful to think that such cold hearted ppl exist!

Sweet colours on that hat. You did a great job.

The Humane Society story is shocking. They're supposed to be protecting the animals!
