Holiday Hats!

With Thanksgiving past, it was time to start thinking about the upcoming holidays...and holiday hats and blankies. Sist expressed a preference for Hanukkah colors, while Uova was definitely showing red! Always willing to grant their wishes as best I can, I came up with these two hats.

Unfortunately, you can't see the cable that twists its way up the front of Uova's red hat, nor the nice cushy broken rib stitch in the body of their new blanket.

Eggs had an opportunity to socialize with folks at
The Carousel Network's annual holiday party. TCN is the local information and support group for people with CFS, FM, tickborne and associated diseases. Here, Eggs are chatting with Jessica B., who has been coming with her mom to TCN meetings for many years. During regular meetings, Jessica always quietly busies herself with drawing and crafts. Each holiday potluck, she sweetly comes with party favors she has made for everyone. She is a great kid, with great parents.

Here you can see Eggs in situ, greedily eyeing the remnants of carrot cake on my plate.

Here's a close-up of Eggs, where you can better see Uova's hat's cable and the blanket detail.
