Let them eat Sugar Plums!

And cookies. And fudge.

The gift knitting is d.o.n.e.

I finished this hat yesterday while stuck in traffic on the #66. It’s been quite exciting commuting the roughly 3 miles from my house to downtown; everywhere there are people last minute shopping; the crowds are extra large it seems.

It took until right about Tuesday afternoon for the Spirit to hit me. I love this time of year when suddenly everybody goes smiley face, well almost everybody!

And when the chores are done, all that’s left is to party and enjoy!

This Cassidy’s Cap went very fast, faster than I thought it would and I really like the softness of this version. The yarn is Rowan Kid Classic in #840 Crystal and it’s a soft icy grey.

    Love the hat and love the yarn. Looks like an absolutely wonderful pairing. I really wish I h=could knit as fast as you. Between school and work I just keep knitting as fast as I can.

    Wow, what a lot of comments!
    Not only do I like the Cassidy’s Cap very much all knit up, but I love the way you presented its Christmassy picture!
    (Must be the photographer thing and a strong sense of visual aesthetics, eh?)
    Merry Christmas!

    Merry Christmas to yooouuu! Hooray for Traditions galore, forevermore! So great to have some yultetide cheer together — hope the weekend/first part of week includes a tiny bit of relaxing for you. (And pot roast is WHAT I HAD!)

    Love kid classic – just the right touch o’ mohair. And I know what you mean about it hitting you. I get kind of immune to it all because of having the canned variety stuffed down my throat since the end of October. The genuine, smiley people – gotta love that cheer. Merry Christmas Bonne Marie!
