For a friend

I found out this week that a dear friend has been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. As she faces this battle, I wanted to give her something to remind her of the warm thoughts and love that people who know her are sending her way.

She is such an elegant lady. So I thought that Britta Graham's lovely Shell Stitch Cloche would suit her well.


I added a clip-on detachable rose that she can wear - or not - according to her mood each day.

Yarn hug. Please get well, J.

School colors hats

OK, I spoke too soon when I said it was time to take a break from making hats. Hats are just such quick and easy projects - and therefore satisfying - so I guess it's difficult to stay away.

Now that we're pretty sure Amy will finally get to transfer to Academy of Art University in January, I figured she needed an earflap hat to showcase her school pride.
