Birthdays and Preemie Hats

First tomorrow I am going to NYC with my friend Rebecca to celebrate our birthdays. So I decided to have a small contest. The person who comments with the correct number of skeins of yarn we purchase while in NYC will get some yarn what else. I will be gone until Sunday so you have until midnite on Sunday to guess. Winner will be announced on Monday evening or Tuesday in the morning.

So for a preemie hat update...I am up to 10 and here with my son Nick are two of being modeled by Boo and Ducky.


Nick I think mom has really lost it
this is a girls hat....Boo







and I really like the red one better so why am I in this one..Ducky










They both survived the ordeal and to prove it here is Ducky hard at work supervising my blog writing




It is so hard to get a nap in around here all I do is work work work..D

"We purchase", as in plural. Keeping moderation in mind I'm going to guess 7 skeins.

Have a great trip!

Chris said...

Hmm, both you and Rebecca? I'll guess 17 skeins.

Julie said...

Hmmm, that's several days in the city. I'm going to have to guess that 20 skeins total for the two of you.

The kitties look adorable modeling the hats :)

Moirae said...

I'll guess 34. I know it sounds high, but if you each get a sweater and a pair of socks...

monica said...

Your kitties are so cute and so very nice to model the preemie hats. I am going to guess a total of 22 skeins for the 2 of you.

Happy birthday to you! I'll go out on a limb here and say between the two of you you will bring home 47 skeins (one of you will get more than the other!).

Tough. Tough. Tough. A lot of factors to weigh in here. #1 You are on a self professed yarn diet #2 You already live in such close proximty to soooo many yarn shops (how do you choose? I only have 5)
so NYC yarn may not be that thrilling. What am I saying? ALL yarn is thrilling! #3 You're knitting "smal" things right now #4 You already have some really beautiful sock yarn in your stash # 5 WHo is Rebecca? What does she knit? Is she on the same diet? Hmmm...you see how hard this is? I'll say 29. :-)

Cute pictures! I like the last one best. As for NYC, have fun, and I think you all will buy 10 skeins total. Nice round number. :)
