That Hat


How many of you out there in blogland watch a movie and get sidetracked by a knit? I was very distracted by a beret in blue that starred in The Wind That Shakes the Barley.
It's a bit hard to see. It has a nubbin on the top and a garter hem. I have more Ultra Alpaca crying out to be this hat. Sigh. Well see. The movie itself was set in the 1920s in Ireland. Brothers are caught in a conflict I still don't quite understand. It was sad.

I was totally surprised on Sunday with a "graduation" party as I like to call it.. I mean really surprised! I would have dressed better and worn some make up if I'd known. It was an awesome brunch with tons of flowers and best of all, I didn't have to make any speeches. I haven't had this many leis since I graduated from high school. There's no turning back now!
