I just want it here, on the record, that I sent out my Christmas cards two days before Thanksgiving!
It will very likely never happen again, so I bask in the glory of this one-shot-deal.
And back to the kitchen I go!
In between twittering and cooking and tweeting about cooking and, you know, eating..
I have been struck with a bad case of needle-ing. (One of the kids here used to say that. Marissa, what are you needle-ing? So cute.)
This is some handspun alpaca Thing One and I found at the Blue Hill Fair this year.
It was supposed to be enough for two (as in, one for her, one for me) roll brim hats...
and it well may have been....
but I saw this. (Rav link)
And I liked this. A lot. I wanted to make this. But Thing One was expecting an alpaca hat.
So I made an adult size hat, and it should fit us both.
Shhh! Don't tell her; it's for Christmas!
Both of my kids have asked for handknits this year.
I know, right???!!!!???
