Hat-Fest 2007

My Aunt gave me a bunch of yarn she had in her stash, among which was a lot of pink. It was such pretty yarn, but no one over the age of 10 was going to be able to wear it without major stares, so I found a nice basic pattern here, and made a few variations on it. There's one with a pom-pon, one with ear-flaps and pom-pons, and one with kitty ears (that Frank was kind enough to model for me)
They're for the daughters of a woman that goes to our church. They were fun to knit, I'm really loving hats!

Life is Good

At a gift shop in Hoboken I see there is a new product line out called "Life is Crap". It shows those not so shining moments in people's lives like going to the dentist, having no toilet paper in the public restroom or getting attacked by a bear. For those of us with a twisted sense of humor, they're hilarious. I tend to think life is really great. I mean it. Even though I may moan about work and some other stupid junk I find real enjoyment in simple things. I'm pretty content right now just sitting here typing to myself. Here's some other things that make me happy (in no particular order)...

* soup, I just love soup, especially pumpkin or squash with a little sour cream in it

* reading with Frank

* snuggling with my Schmoopie

* colored chalk, paper, markers, basically all office/craft supplies make me happy

* that feeling you get when you know you can sleep as long as you like in the morning because you have absolutely no other commitment (this is extremely rare)

This is all for now. ;-)
