If You Came Over Today ...

pattern: Jane Hat, from Jane Richmond

needles: sizes US 8 / 5.0 mm and US 10 / 6.0 mm 16" circulars


If you came over today you would see our little man just coming out of the worst few days of an ear infection. His second, in just under a month. Poor little man!

If you came over today you would see piles of laundry waiting to get done! A sick babe means laundry stacks up while we take turns holding him and loving on him. Laundry can wait.

If you came over today I would tell you all about the amazing anniversary date I had with Zach last night! We saw Rock Of Ages - amazing show! I love to go to the theater, but Zach is not as big a fan so we make a yearly date and he enjoys himself to varying degrees. This time? It was a total score!

If you came over today you would see all the amazing work that's been done in our back yard recently! A few old slabs of concrete are now gone, new dirt has been filled in their place, and grass seed has been sprinkled. Our yard is taking shape!

If you came over today you would see the pile of yarn from a hat that's been ripped out TWICE. A simple pattern, and one I've knit before with success, but for some reason I've struggled mightily with it this time around.

If you came over today I'd tell you about the new book I've just started. The Alchemyst: The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel is the first book in a Young Adult series about twins Sophie and Josh and their adventures as they try to save the world! I can't wait to get deeper into it!

If you came over today I'm sure I'd hug you and tell you how grateful I am that you're here, sharing this journey with me!


I'm making 10,000 hats for 10,000 people. These are hats 031 and 032.
