Knitting! It's like magic!

A few weeks ago, Liz posted some pictures of her baby in what is just about the cutest hat I’ve ever seen. I left her a comment stating as much and then do you know what happened?

This happened!

Yes! She sent me one of my very own! Or of Nora’s very own, anyway. It seems Liz had made a small hat as a prototype, and was happy to find a small baby to send it to. I think the hat may be a squidge too small for Nora, but I don’t care because I love it so much.

People who knit astound me. I am astounded. They take two sticks and some string and wave them around and make CLOTHES. It’s like a miracle. Or magic, even, what with the waving around of sticks and all.

Liz! Are you a magician?

And now, to make up for the non-photogenic be-hatted baby up there, may I present you with our Christmas card outtakes? It's funniest if you flip through them fast so it looks like they're moving.

I agree: knitting is totally just like magic. I could never, ever do it.

Also, your kids are extremely cute!

So cute! They sure resemble each other, don't they?

Cute pictures!

And yes, I believe Liz has some sort of magic touch for knitting. She makes the most darling things!

That hat is GREAT!

I think several of those outtakes are usable. VERY CUTE CHILDREN.

Does Liz take requests for grown-up hats? =)

(Last time I tried to make a hat for myself, it ended up fitting James better.)

Swistle: Yes, but none of them were as good as one from two or so months ago where they're both looking at the camera, both smiling, AND it's in focus. So we went with that.
