Even When They're Very Minor, Tis the Season for Miracles! So My Fingers are Crossed
I used this pattern from Stephanie Knits. It looked good in the pattern, but after following it exactly and casting off, I tried it on.
I have a relatively small hand. I know it's a beanie - is this big enough for a full-grown man's head? Are chemo caps for men shorter that regular stocking hats? Beanies are not as deep? This one just barely clips the top of my ears...
(Now obviously I can use it next fall for a donation to NoSoKnit and I have time to knit another chemo cap. (Any ideas for patterns would be welcomed...I'm thinking something with a simple pattern - as much as I love Koolhaas, I don't think I want to knit another one at this time of year!)
I mentioned miracles here - if you have a prayer list? Would you put my two friends on it? Both are really neat guys.
Totally on another plane...when I sat down to knit tonight, I suddenly decided to turn on Lifetime and watch whatever Christmas movie was on at 9, and not watch Rachel Madow (as much as I enjoy her show, I was not in the mood for more news...)
I flipped the channel and came in on the credits rolling before the movie, and before I saw it I thought, is this? REALLY? OMG!
I've missed it the past couple of years, I can't ever remember to check to see when it's on. And it's ONLY my favorite Christmas movie, as I know you remember...
A love story for adults...
And one for those becoming adults...
And some of the best staging, singing, and dancing there is.
It's such a delightful escape movie - to the Vermont of my family's birth...in the heart of the one season that I adore there.
And everyone who is currently there, is thinking - yeah...they wanted snow in Vermont in that movie - well "We've got SNOW!"
(I probably shouldn't tell you it was 67 degrees here today, should I?)
