Twin hats

Twin hats
Originally uploaded by CreativeExile.

Yesterday was productive for getting out baby hats; I mailed two packages. These two went together, as a Russian couple in Connecticut E knows recently had twins. There is a strange Russian superstition that kept them from telling us she was pregnant until the twins were born. Actually, the superstition is to wait until you're at least 7 months along; they erred on the extra-safe side.

The other package was for a friend's daughter, born back in September. The hat (and at least one sock, haha) turned out a bit large, so I didn't mind waiting to send it. We kept talking about getting together, too, but that never happened. May as well get the packages off before the postage goes up on Monday.

Speaking of postage, remember the extra skein of Summer Tweed I needed just two days ago? Guess what arrived YESTERDAY. And guess who didn't gouge me on shipping? "Just what it costs us to mail it," the woman who answered the phone said. Just 85 cents. AND it was wrapped lovingly in pink tissue paper.

Love. True fiber love.
