A week ago, I was on my second day of a 2583+ mile trip. I flew from here to Dallas, to Chicago, to Charleston, WV where my dear friend, Troy, picked me up from the airport to head back to his Mom's in Shady Springs. She had been in the hospital for a month and he needed to bring her to Texas, so that he could care for her until she is strong enough to stay on her own again.
I worked on this little elfin hat while on the plane and the ride home. The self-striping sock yarn is very fun. It is exciting to see what design will be worked as you go.
The pattern had little corkscrew fringes on the peak, but I thought it needed to be less frilly for a boy so I made a little braid to top it off. I can't wait to see it on Little Man... though he won't need a hat for quite awhile in this kind of heat!
My dear, sweet daughter drove two and a half hours and back just so I could have this precious hug while I was passing through West Virginia. Oh, how I loved this time. These two are priceless treasures.
