Yarn is a sick person’s best friend…

I have finally been struck with the cold that plagued by family all week. As I sat on the couch making my way through the first season of 30Rock (which is funny as hell and my new addiction!) I began to feel that guilty itchy sensation that comes with doing nothing all day long while those around you pick up your slack. Since the headache and fever prevented any physical exertion I dug out my crochet needles and yarn and worked up some much needed winter hats for the kids.


I crocheted Otter’s first even though I was fairly certain he would never use it. He can’t abide restriction and finds hats, gloves, and coats to be the most opressive objects ever presented to him. Surprisingly he took to his new hat rather well. It seems watching me make it all afternoon turned it into something cool instead of something irritating. He couldn’t wait to try it on and didn’t want to take it off.


Once Monkey saw Otter’s hat she demanded one “exactly like it but with a poof ball.” We settled on candy cane stripes for her colors and I did my best with a poof ball on top. She seems quite pleased with it. Now I am wondering how hard it would be to make matching mittens…
