Laurie's Profile

About

My passion, after my husband, four kids and teaching psychology, is knitting with luxury fibers. My love of knitting comes from the desire to continue my mother's craft. My skill willl never equal hers, she was amazing, but the beautiful yarn I choose does most of the work!

The question, “Do you like my hat?” comes from the P. D. Eastman book Go, Dog, Go!
My father was an educator, a very funny and often silly man. He loved the exchange in this book between the male dog and the female dog. She tried every hat under the sun trying to impress her man to no avail until the very end.

When my dad wanted to make us laugh, he would take whatever was at hand, a book, a pot, a toy, put it on his head and say, “do you like my hat?” It was his trademark and I have made it mine as a tribute to him.
