Here's my friend!

For her birthday, she was happy to receive her apron. The thank you note she sent is a keeper:

"Thank you for my apron. I am going to keep it. Sometime make me a chef hat."

So here is the chef hat! If everyone was as excited about simple little gifts like a chef hat and apron, the world would be a better place, and giving gifts would happen all year round at random. To bad there isn't more time in the day to spearhead that initiative. Maybe later.

Doesn't always feel that way!

Your Word is "Fearless"

You see life as your one chance to experience everything, and you just go for it!

You believe the biggest risk is being afraid and missing out on something amazing.

Sometimes your fearlessness means you're daring. You enjoy risky activities.

And sometimes your fearlessness means you're courageous. You're brave enough to do the right thing, even when it's scary.

Did this start as a knitting blog?

Knitting hasn't been the topic for a few entries, but don't worry, don't loss faith. The needles have been out, clicking - though with finishing projects more than making ambitious delves into large projects. Here's another Elizabeth Zimmerman Baby Surprise Jacket. If you've never made one, it's fun and the results are worth it. This one needs buttons. The pattern isn't sized, you just use the needle size to fit the yarn and the end result is that size, like it or not. It's made from 8 oz. of worsted weight handspun on size 8 needles, so it will fit a 4 year old. Gives lots of time for buttons then.
Here are some new socks too! Nothing beats a new pair of socks right off the needles! These are RPMs, made from Socks that Rock from Rhinebeck. There isn't anything that isn't great about them!
