If A Tree Falls in the Forest...

and no one is there to hear it when it hits the ground: did it make a sound?

And if you knit like a crazy person for three months on holiday gifts, and then you forget to take a picture of anything, did the knitting really happen? What is the sound of one hand clapping on your forehead in disbelief as you drive off in the car?

Reader, there are no pictures of the 2007 Holiday knitting.

Let's move on. I do have some nice pictures of the big old girls in non-holiday hats. Here is Clementine wearing We Call Them Pirates, a fun knit. In fact, this is only a two color fair isle, with almost no ends to weave in, so the reverse side is purrrrrrfect. I might ask her to wear it inside out:

Emily wanted a slouchy beret made out of some leftover Cashmerino but I wanted a tam o' shanter with a nice decrease pattern which makes for more interesting knitting. We compromised on this Tam o' Slouchy, using the (most excellent) basic tam pattern from Anne Budd's Book of Knitting Patterns:

A rare picture of Emily with her hair down, I think. Anyway here's the crown of the hat.
