Requests Complete

Felted Bucket Hat number four is for 'Sis'. 
At her request, the hat was made exactly the same as the hat I knit   for our Christmas gift exchange.  Knit with black Rejuvenation yarn and decorated with three little buttons. 
All my post-Christmas requests are now complete.  Katie's hat and her non-requested, but matching mittens and 'Sis' black hat.  
Good thing too. I see them all this coming weekend in Toronto. The entire family is heading down because artist son, Peter, has a show.  I joke with him saying that he is the only 36 year old artist who has an entire family  show up for the opening of his shows.   He says he appreciates the support.  Oh, support.  I'd hate to tell him we come for the  crackers and cheese they always serve at show openings.

Katie and 'Sis' will arrive, bare-headed  and no doubt cold, at the show but leave stylishly warm and comfy.  Such gratification !

Peter's paintings are beautiful. So calm and still. They move me, but they leave me puzzled somehow. Why so deserted?

What a lucky family to have warm heads! I love your touch with the buttons.

I totally love the buttons!

My husband and I are also big fans of Peter's work.

What a talented family!
