I knit a pair of socks and a pair of mittens for Anna Grace.   I knit a shark hat for Jack Henry.   And then a little voice said “Where’s mine?”.   And so The Guilt Hat was born.      I have avoided making hats for Georgia Kate for one very important reason: […]

Anna Grace’s Socks

Anna Grace has a renewed interest in knitting, my knitting and a fondness for hand knit things.   Recently she has been asking “who are those for?” each time she sees me knitting a pair of socks.    And so I asked the question that was begging to be asked: “Would you like me to […]
