Thank you, everybody, for your thoughtful words.

To misquote Robert Frost wildly out of context, meantime, Ice (yesterday) was great and did suffice. I tested my hands today with a row, then another, then another, and after a day of it, hey, I had a hat!

It wasn’t till I was snapping its picture that it hit me. I’d been making the thing up as I went along, and the pattern is similar to the one I doodled with to create the first baby sweater I ever knitted for my first baby, 28 years ago. Great mind thinks alike.

Time to grab the needles to knit something for Parker next. I *so* can’t wait to see him and his proud parents.

Pretty! For the first time since I moved here I’ve actually been cold enough to be inspired to knit a hat for myself – I’m halfway there and should be done soon.

I hope that someday when he’s old enough, that his parents will be willing to visit the shop with you so we can meet Parker too!

There is no being so perfect as a first grandchild.

I love the hat, and the color. Very becoming.

As for Parker, ever see Jane’s hat in Firefly? Now that is a warm, warm hat!

OHHHH, it looks so soft and snuggly (is that a word?).

Of course ‘snuggly’ is a word!

This project looks very warm indeed!

I hope you get to go visit your son and his family soon and that you have a very safe trip when you do, both of you. 🙂

So glad the ice did its job. The hat is swell!
