Small Success Thursdays:Ta-Da! I Am Now a 21st Century Woman!



  • My daughter showed up at our country home sporting an ear warmer which I soon learned is all the rage at university. Soon we were looking at patterns online, I crocheted one in 40 minutes, using chunky wool and a huge crochet hook, then simply wrapped wool around to pinch it in on one side. I actually managed to take a picture with a phone and emailed it to myself. Ta-da !..I am now officially a 21st century woman.
  •  These ear warmers are quick to whip up and cheap, great for Christmas because they are all the rage. I know it is shocking, but it seems that I am IN STYLE! This definitely ranks as a small success .
