I finished the second hat. Just like I promised. I am not sure I am in love with this hat yet. It came out kinda big. That is why the lovely Heda is modeling it and not me. I may toss it in the wash and see what happens. I may wait until winter when I would actually wear it. We shall see.
The pattern was fun to knit. Here is the back shot:
I would make this again, but I suppose I would use different yarn. This one is kinda "nubby" Also I would go down a needle size. Should have checked my gauge....
Also, I have posted the recipe for the French Breakfast Puffs. I added it to my post below. It is an old family favorite recipe. Hope you enjoy!

I made 24 of these last night. There is one left.....
Would you like the recipe?
June 16th edit to add recipe:
Bake at 350 degrees
1/3 c shortening
1/2 c sugar
1-1/2 c sifted flour
1-1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 c milk
1/3 c melted margarine
1/2 c sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
Grease 12 muffin cups. Mix thoroughly shortening, sugar, egg. Sift together flour, baking powder, salt, nutmeg and add alternately with milk. Fill muffin cups 2/3 full. Bake 20-25 min. until golden brown. Immediately roll first in melted margarine then mixture of sugar and cinnamon.
I would double this batch because 12 just won't last long.

But I am having UFO regret.
I am almost done with my sock head hat. So what's wrong with me? Finish it already!
Then I start the Deep Peace scarf/shawl. Which I can justify. I taught this as a class and I am going to keep it this way because I am sure I am going to teach this class again. So we are good with this one.
What's next.... oh yeah, my sock. Let's see, when did I start this? October 8th, 2009. Finish it already! But then start the other one right away!
Moving on...my other hat. This too is almost complete. Perhaps not as complete as my hat above, but really I am thisclose. Finish it already! Will ya?
So here's the deal. I am going to finish both the hats then start a shawl.
