The blue and green ones on the bottom row were already done, the other three I did starting Wednesday. Not shown: a dark green with specks of lighter shades, Vaa colorway, that I cast on pretty much the moment the dark purple Dewberry one’s ends were run in–having previously searched for that skein, decided it must have been used up and gone on its way and oh wait there it is!

So someone who wants darker shades but likes green will be able to find something after all. It’s about 3/4 done.

Sometimes, you just have to knit a hat.

Meantime, the third member of Chris’s crew stopped by and I brought out the last of the cranberry bars, one for each of them. H. exclaimed, Is this your recipe? Can I have your recipe? This would be great for Thanksgiving!

I told him I’d written it down from a magazine in the pediatrician’s waiting room thirty years ago.

From an ad for Pam spray of all things. Who knew that that’s where I would discover my favorite cookie of all time.

Edit: and having written that, I just looked up Pam, found they have recipes but not that one, hit Contact Us and offered them their own recipe back because it’s made so many people so happy so many times.

Christmas and charity–and both need hats. I was directed on a Ravelry thread to go to Katrinkies for cute gifts for knitters–and they really are.

Ah, those look great! I’m sure the workers will be very happy.
