A festive evning

Rebecca made us a lovely St. Patrick’s dinner on St.Cyril’s day, a day late, since no one could come on the actual day. Afterward, Rachael snoozed and computed, while Rebecca and my auntie helped me dismantle my Japanese/Norwegian gloves. This was more difficult than you might think because there were so many finger tips with the yarn ends very efficiently woven in, and then, for a while, a tangley yarn octopus. Using her pompom making machine, Rebecca made a cute little puff for my Andean hat – about which everyone but Herself was rather rude. It was way too big, the ears were in the wrong place, it was totally unchic, etc. I am at the age where comfort is of more importance than chic, and it was very warm and cozy. and has an adorable little pompom puff. So there!

I knitted that about 35 years ago and it is still going strong. I made the one that I am wearing, which you can't see much of, for Rebecca, but she rejected it and took my old one which she is wearing.
