...Thomas, who turned four in December and has a great sense of both humor and fashion...
... Sara, who was just 10 last week and who is flanked by my brother Stephen and sister-in-law Lanina (Sara is a knitter, so that's the knitting connection in today's post) ...
... and, finally, my mother, who is ultimately responsible for the gene-pool cuteness factor passed along to her children and grandchildren. Thanks, Mom!

I should have added something to provide perspective on size -- these are TINY. A colleague asked me if they were mug cozies. :-) The tan hat is crocheted from a superbulky wool, and the aqua hat is knit from DK weight cotton. I mailed them off to Save the Children on Wednesday, along with a note to President Bush asking him to provide funding for maternal and child health programs in developing countries. The hats themselves will be sent to Africa and India, I believe.

I'm a new year's eve baby, and this year decided to throw myself a party to celebrate the end of a fairly awful year and to ring in the new year with good friends and a hopeful attitude.
Angela brought the birthday cake (yum!), along with her cousin Catherine, visiting from Nova Scotia.
And, of course, there were knitters! Jolie and Gwen, from the LICKnit group.
And Jill and Ruth, from the Tuesday night Stitch-n-Bitch at The Point in the West Village, along with Colette, Scrabble player extraordinaire and fellow LIC knitter.
It was a fun, fun evening, capped off at midnight with a spectacular view of the Central Park fireworks. (At that point, I was a trifle overserved and so did not take any photos of the fireworks, but take my word for it -- they were amazing!)
Happy new year!
