A Little Hat Making
It's not quite the kind of hat Sophie would make in Howl's Moving Castle, which I was re-reading lately, but Ysolda's Ripley is a very cute hat. I made it out of some left over Cashmerino from Snow White's Mittens (aka Bella's Mittens) after my BKFF whipped one up the other day and told me it couldn't be missed. Being on leave, I sat down to finally finish watching The West Wing (hurray Santos!) and knitted it up! It's a brilliant pattern (you'll note that the finishing isn't quite perfect there at the back of the lace... but I'm not fussy!). I've named it 'New Cheese' after Basile's fairy tale, "The Three Citrons." The Prince makes me laugh!
