  • Cheerful Recollections

    Many merry Christmases, friendships,
    great accumulation of cheerful recollections,
    affection on earth, and Heaven at last for all of us.
    - Charles Dickens



    My, oh, my. What a beautiful hat. Let's all pause and reflect on it's beauty. Those cables. The softness. The warmth. (Trust me on these last two.) The best kind of friends - those who go to Alaska and bring you quiviut from the Oomingmak Musk-Ox Producers Cooperative. We are full of Christmas cheer over here. (The fact that this was a birthday present and that I made the hat a month ago are just red herrings. Christmas cheer. That's the ticket.)

    Are you distracted enough by it's beauty to note that I haven't yet sewn the buttons on my mom's cardigan?

    Beautiful hat! Did you use a pattern or make it up yourself?

    I made it up. The yarn actually came in a kit, but I wasn't in love with any of the patterns. It just said cables to me, so I went with the given CO number and added cables. Mind you, this was done entirely in one day as the passenger in a car exploring Martha's Vineyard in November - my companions were very impressed.

    Worked like charm. Now I'm just having quiviut envy and agreeing that indeed, those are the best kind of friends. Have any spares?!

    Nice artsy photo, T. I'm impressed. I'm going to picture you wearing this hat with a halo surrounding you.

    Miss you. Washington just isn't the same after a 9-day visit from you!
