    Your children are beautiful, and so are your designs. Hats are one of my favorite quick projects to knit. Well… some hats can be quite elaborate depending on what you’re making.

    I’ve made homemade jam, butters, and jellies for my neighbors and friends. I even (occasionally) toss in homemade soap. I found you via a Ravelry forum, the poster mentioned your pattern give away. I selected a free pattern, and will be purchasing more.Thanks so much for that! I’m so happy I saw that post, it’s my first time learning about tin can knits lovely designs.

    Here’s hoping you and your loved ones have a wonderful Christmas holiday, and a fabulous New Year!
