  • You can never have too many beanies!!

  • Ann, I have a boy the same age as your fella. I completely get the need to make him a beanie, even though he doesn’t need one. I just made one, myself.
    Merry Christmas!

  • What gauge and finished measurement did you end up with? I’m not seeing this information in the pattern. Thanks.

  • Snow days are great!! No boys in my home so I am making a beret for my middle daughter!

  • Apparently the trend now is to make them with a yarn faux hawk. Might be worth a try.

  • “Who doesn’t really need a beanie. But maybe I need to make [him] one?”
    I think that that’s my whole philosphy of knitting, right there. Another piece, for a friend who feels the cold? OK. A non-wool hat for another friend going through chemo? Of course.
    They kindly tell me that the pieces are welcome, worn often, and complimented by others. That’s nice, but in a funny way, that’s only part of the point.

  • Sigh…I just love reading your blog. Thank you both for writing it.

  • it will be cooold in florida tonight
    your fire looks good and cozy

  • I can’t concentrate on the rest of your post until you tell me something about the artwork in the center of the mantle, please.

  • I want to come sit by your fire. This Southern girl was not genetically bred for our cold temps that seem to be stuck here.
