Spring Has Sprung

Now that spring has arrived, I finally received my knit cap from Aunt Joyce. And let me tell you it was worth the wait. It is a beautiful variegated pink with pink ear muffs. And it fits like a dream. You may remember that I have been pining for this hat since I discovered it in the book Pet Projects: The Animal Knits Bible. I wrote about it in my post For Whom is that Little Fur Cap?

When I received a package in the mail from Aunt Joyce in January, I ripped the package open only to find a knit hat for Angus not me.

Aunt Joyce delivered my hat herself, but I was downstairs when she arrived and Angus slipped on my hat before anyone knew what happened. He doesn't understand or care that blue is for boys and pink is for girls. I think that rule generally applies except when it comes to oxford shirts or polo shirts or a little rouge for color. Just ask Ronald Reagan. Well damn if Angus didn't look like a hunk in my pink knit cap. I made him take it off right away and put on his own beautiful blue knit cap. I didn't want him stretching my hat all out. Wool stretches you know. I once had a wool sweater that looked like a misshapen maxi (dress not pad) after I had worn it just a few times.

Well this little fur cap is all mine. Even though Roxie looks like a bleeping beauty queen in it. I sometimes feel like Santa Claus next to her. But's it's OK when a daughter is prettier than her mother. It's sometimes difficult when it's the other way around. Don't get me wrong, I still get my share of boys sniffing around my garden gate. If you know what I mean.

Since I am sharing pics of my family donning silly hats. I have to share this pic of Grammy Jill wearing a fabulous pink fur hat with ears. Dad made her put it on. It actually looked quite fetching. Grammy would have bought it if not for the ears. Very 1960's Pierre Cardin. He's still alive you know. He bought the restaurant Maxim's in Paris and restored it to its former glory. That's what Suzy Menkes told me
