Hat Makin'

I have been making hats for friends this week. It has been REALLY cold this "winter" here in Oki. Weird. We have been here 4 winters and this is the coldest it has been! We are fah-reezing!! So I made a hat for my friend and her hubby. Hers is a puff stitch pink hat and his is a basic sc beanie. He asked for one with no holes in it. And I used jiffy yarn for his and I have to say I LOVE IT!! It is bulky, yet soft and it made a gorgeous soft hat. I will try to get some pics this week of the hats being worn to post here.
Pics coming soon!

It is great to see and hear their reactions to the AMAZING food and garlicky goodness. I usually forget to take pictures of the food, but not this time. So here are some pictures from the Garlic House. The food is amazing and we had a fun time with our friends!

Gorgeous Tote Bag
