Happy Yarn Harlot Day!

Tonight I get to go see the Yarn Harlot! I am so excited she is stopping in Kansas City. Our knitting group is going out to dinner and then to see "the show". Full report tomorrow!
I finished the Gretel hat for my niece. It turned out lovely. I hope she likes it. I made the fitted beret version. Next time I make one I think I'll go for the in between version, somewhere between fitted and slouchy.

In grape jelly news, I think I may make 2 more batches and call it quits. Then I will have about 41 pints. Enough to give away and enough to keep. We have already gone through one pint at home and it's only been 2 weeks since the first batch. I'm not sure if it's because it's really good jelly or because I've been baking a lot from the River Cottage Cookbook. I made shortbread for breakfast Sunday morning and it was so good the dog ate the leftovers while we were at church services.

Well, I'm off to work. Gotta be productive since I'm skipping out at 2:30 pm.

The beret is lovely and I can't wait to hear about tonight!

Loved seeing the grape jelly too. I used to love to make our jelly and preserves and I'm not sure why I don't anymore. Hmm....

I love the beret! I hadn't seen it before, but now it's added to my Ravelry queue.

Last night was a blast, wasn't it?
