I started this hat for my grandson Grayson. He was named after the Irish side of the family so I chose this worsted yarn by Knitpicks called Dublin and I named the hat Dubliner. It is the ear flap pattern from Purl Soho in the child's size.
I hope you are all doing well, staying healthy and warming up after the "deep freeze" across the country. Happy Trails until we meet again..........

Susan B. Anderson on her blog. I actually got to see the socks made up in this yarn so I was sold. I can't remember the name now but since she's no longer open I guess it doesn't make much difference. I'm also using Susan's "go to" sock pattern which she has for free on her blog and/or Ravelry.. Oh those needles are tiny...from using a 7 to using a 1. I hope my eyes are up to it, lol!
Yesterday was my 65th birthday and I made an orange cake with a recipe I got from Ruth and it was delicious! Thank you Ruth, and thank you Benjamin for choosing such a great cake for your birthday. Mine didn't turn out nearly as pretty as Ruths' so I didn't include a picture but if you go to her website there is a picture of the Orange Cake and the recipe. YUM!!!!
