The only color left in our garden is purple! And bits of white fluff on the clemetis vine. I made this hat a few years ago, the first hat I ever made and the only one. I want to experiment more with hats, you can never have too many in New England. Are you ready for the holidays? I'm not at all!

how nice to still have a bit of color! i am mostly ready-- but still a few errands to run (much to my chagrin). can i just stay in & bake instead??

Still not ready but I did order the turkey. As long as there is lots of food, everything should be good.

So not ready and really feeling STRESSED about it today - every day I get home and there's mail from Ireland and I still haven't written my cards and have blown by postal deadlines. Sigh. Breathe, reboot, have a glass of wine!

Look at you! In your hat! I love it. No stress...focus on the warmth and loveliness that you share here with us... it is already such a perfect gift, no?

much love,
