Advent Has Begun!


The holiday season has begun at my house! Today I started putting up my Christmas Village, while watching the Oregon Ducks play. It's always difficult for me to get this task done. Therefore today was a great day to get it going. Now I need to get my husband to put up Christmas lights before it starts to rain again. I often wonder what the motivation would be on a cold day to go out and put lights up that will come down in a month! This just seems so strange to me that I even am thinking about this. Many years ago I found so much joy in putting those lights up and decorating my house. Now I just look at it & see WORK! I really think that I've become rather scrooge like........... 
I enjoy the sites, sounds, and smells of the season. But I would rather enjoy the church events and family with out  all the hard work. Whats that about any way???? 
Right now I'm working on hats, I obsessed with hats..... My boys are all getting hats for Christmas! In fact they are wearing them already. I'll have to confiscate them so I can re-gift them in their stockings. 
This is my attempt at a hat with flaps... Its "Thorpe"
I have knit it over sized so I can felt it. Its merino and tussah.

Cameron's Hat.... I can get it off of him!

Those hats are so cute! I am making several myself. Hats are one of the FEW things kids will wear that we knit, right?
