A dear friend of mine is having her first baby. Oh the expectant joys of that first child. I made her two baby blankets and still felt she needed something more. Something special. Something sweet as a summer peach. Something soft as a mouses ear. Something luxurious and expensive. She needed an angora baby cap. So I knitted her one. I adore it. It is softer than a mouses ear, sweeter than summer peaches and luxuriously expensive ( or it could have been, had I not got this yarn at an unbelievable sale). Her shower is Monday....I will wait until the last minute to wrap it so I can fondle it just 'one more time'. This is one of those pieces that will be hard to give away. My glory will come though, at the baby shower, when she opens this present and everyone gasps, then oooohhs and aawhhhs. Oh yes, those are delicious moments, are they not? When our work is admired with the eyes and fingertips of many. I will bask in that warm glow, and then have cake. yum.

Today is my birthday so I decided to crochet myself a tiara and wear it to work. I found this pattern at the midnight knitter ( www.moonarts.com) . It is a very simple pattern and it works up quick! I finished this one in a bit over an hour. I should explain that I am a special education teacher, note: Chalkboard in background, so my students and fellow teachers were taken with envy. I adore my job, and my new tiara! Time to eat cake...yum!

At an SCA event recently, I had the opportunity to 'walk a maze'. I had never done this before so a walk around was taken. My nalbinding came along and was all the better for it. I recommend this pastime for clearing the mind and planning your next fiber project....yum.
