How to say, "I give a shit about you" this Christmas.

Recently, my friend Heather was having a birthday.  I really wanted to give her a present that sent the message, "Hey friend.  You're someone I give a shit about," but, I didn't have a lot of time to make her something handmade-- which is my usual go-to way of telling someone they are important to me.

Luckily,  last winter, I worked out a pattern for a warm winter hat that knits up in just a few hours.  All it took was one nap time, and this hand-knitted token of my affection was cranked out and ready for the snow.

When Heather opened it, I could tell she really knew how much I gave a shit about her. I'm posting it here for you all, so that you too can knit up quick, cute, gifts-- hopefully in time for Christmas.

I also created this absolutely amazing Christmas card, which Sean quickly refused to send out. I guess we all know how ungrateful Sean really is to me for making him and Millie such incredible STAR WARS themed halloween costumes. 

I am still in disbelief that Sean has vetoed this card.

I hope you all have a really good Christmas (Endor happy new year!), and that you get to spend your holiday with people you totally, absolutely, give 100% of a shit about!


  1. You are wildly funny!!! Found you from Ravelry (bikegrrl) when I followed up on your Max hat pattern. Thank you for sharing! I am going to send this immediately to my beloved daughter who is very skillfully juggling a 7-week old and a 22-month old. (Or at least picking them quickly up off the floor...) "I am laughing WITH you, honey, not AT you!" Best wishes...

    1. Thank you so much! I'm glad you like the combination of trashy humor and knitting patterns. Sounds like your daughter's kids will have a fun grandma on their hands :) Happy knitting!
