A few weeks ago, Sam started loom knitting a hat for Sestra. Apparently, loom knitting is all the rage in Miss Shelly's 2nd-4th grade class and when Sam saw the looms in Sestra's closet (they were purchased to make circles for her dotty walls) he got super excited about making a hat for Sestra! He wanted to make it in Kazakhstan colors, so we chose yellow, and you can see by the tongue out in the photo that clearly loom knitting requires intense concentration.
Aunt Sarah and I joined in the fun today and we finished up Sestra's hat, created a matching one for sestra baby, and Sam even started a new one (this time in green) for Ben! We are going to be one good-looking, warm-headed family in Kazakhstan!
Here's Ben looking awfully cute, modeling with sestra baby. The hat is a little snug on him, so hopefully it'll fit Sestra just right!
