gifties in both directions
A friend recently sent me an unexpected but very thoughtful gift so this little set of quilted coasters are now making their way to her as a thank you. A little gift for an old friend with a new name and a new home. [Many many congratulations Sara!]
And Twin was so patient to model this awesome new hat that Mom knitted for us. (Don't worry, that big fat lower lip only reflects her dislike of being photographed, rather than any dissatisfaction with the hat.) It is the warmest and coziest hat ever. Mom used this yarn and this pattern. It's called the Brangelina hat and it looks crazy complicated to my non-knitter's eye. Besides being super soft and comfortable, it is also big enough for our gigantic domes, which is saying something. She has promised to make us a second one—good thing because otherwise we might have fought over it all winter. Thank you thank you Mama!!
On an unrelated note, I finally figured out how to find permalinks for my individual posts. This has been driving me nuts for months. Did you fellow Blogger-users know that the itty bitty little timestamp at the end of your posts is actually a permalink? Well I didn't and, umm, can anyone say "not particularly intuitive, Blogger?" I found an extremely helpful blog that instructs how to add the word "Permalink" down there to make it a bit less confusing. You can get the instructions here for Classic Blogger and here for those of you who are using the New Blogger Formerly Known as Beta. I thought I'd share this in case anyone else is suffering from Blogger-induced permalink frustration. Or maybe it was just me.
Happy Thursday friends!
