{this moment}

{this moment} - A Friday ritual. A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember. -- Inspired by SouleMama

I should just call this my Wordy Friday instead of Wordless Friday, since I can't seem to just post the dang picture and keep my mouth shut.  Foghorn is getting tired of being the hat model for my charity knitting, but I'm making for kids ranging from 5 to 18 years so I need some idea of what head sizes I still need.  This particular hat was made from wool yarn purchased at the estate sale of a friend's grandmother last summer.  I bought a couple bags of brand new acrylic yarn and mixed in were two two-ounce skeins of brand new wool yarn, still in the wrappers.  And the wrappers looked like they dated from the early 60s.  (I couldn't resist giving you a shot of that as well.)  One was bright blue and one black and I've had no idea what to do with such small amounts.  Enter the hat-making!  It turned out to be one of my favorite hats in the bunch.   I find it amusing that this yarn, purchased during the Cold War, has now been made into something to warm a Russian orphan.  Funny old life.

It appears that Foghorn has had her limit of hats ... and modeling.
