My favorite muse is my niece Michelle as she is always fun to make things for and since she is small they are not overwhelming time-wise. (Except the elephant that I stayed up all night to finish for her birthday, but that's my fault for not reading the finished size. Who expected him to be a foot long? )

Anyway, I was having a tough time figuring out what to make her this year for Hannukah and then the Winter Knitty came out and my problem was solved. For the girl who live in ponytails, piggle was the perfect thing.
I have to thank my sister for the photo since the only time Michelle wanted to wear the hat all weekend was while I was in the shower. I have been told that since then, she has asked specifically to wear it to school where she has been ooh'd and aah'd over. And she announced proudly that "My Auntie Sarah made this for me". That of course makes me melt.

"My auntie made this for me." That's just the best kind of praise. Ya know you've done right.
