Tam! That word makes me smile. It just sounds like giddy baby babble. Or some kind of small candy wrapped in crazy bright colors. Various dictionaries tell me that it’s short for “tam o’shanter: a woolen cap of Scottish origin.”

We woke up with Bebe very, very early this morning – my boys went back to sleep but I lay there thinking about winding balls of wool. Seriously: it’s a gift idea I’m considering, not some odd variation on counting sheep. So no sleep for Mama. I finally got up and finished knitting the tam.

It’s blocking now, more pics and details after Christmas.
