Loretta is the master of all things knitting. When we announced our "WEGE '09" (white elephant gift exchange '09) party, Loretta knew exactly what would melt my heart. A full-on viking beard cap. Lucky for me, through all the chaos and fist fights, I walked away as the winner of this marvelous gift. Before keeping it for myself, I let everybody take a picture with it once (and only once) because I am such a nice guy. Here are the pictures of the cap in all its glory.
