Photo Friday: Grateful for Simple Pleasures

Tea, books, knitting, eating, cuddling, chocolate... This is a small celebration of some of my favourite simple pleasures. What makes your list?

"Owl Eyes on You" Hat in my store

This pattern, over a year in the designing (that happens sometimes), is finally done. Inspired by the challenge of getting a seamless, one-piece toque in a rectangular shape to make it simple to create "owl ears", this two-tone topper will look adorable on the little man or lady in your life!

Just in time for... summer?

Well, in amongst all my other goings-on, I have been working away at testing some of my hat designs from this spring. Today, I finally got a knitting pattern into my Etsy store. You can find this at

I have actually made another hat for myself, but am too impatient to wait until I get good photos taken of it before I put this in the store. I will add those photos later.

So, here it is, in all its glory: the Lucy Pevensie Tam! You can also find it on Ravelry here . Go check it out. And then buy it. :-)

Here is the tam being modelled by the adorable Zoe.

Knitting has been therapy lately--as I wait, and wait, and wait for our house to be moved. Now that this is done, I guess it is time to start working on the next pattern! (Since it looks like the move will not be until at least next week, now.)

But Lord, I stopped praying for patience a LONG time ago!... :-)

Okay, done whining now.
