I had to share this great pic of Meg Barker in her hat. Isn't she gorgeous? What fun to see her in one of my hats! She is a published and famous scrapbooker, afterall. :)

This is Samson. My last post had his big sister, Olivia. Isn't he sweet? Look at that perfect skin. I used different brands of yarn for this hat. The weight of the yarns are similar so I didn't need to to a gauge (I'm not the gauge type). I like using different brands for the same project...it's a surprise when the project is complete. Thanks pics Jenny!

Hi there! I, along with many, many knitters am completely in love with Blue Sky and all they offer. Kathy, at Shepherd's Choice, has the best selection of their yarns. I love to go in and just feel all the different weights and marvel at their colors. I think Blue Sky is the yarn company that truly "gets" color and executes well. I made these hats for a client that had a couple baby showers to attend. The two colors together have been popular this season.

This is Emma debuting my Urban Beret. The hat she is wearing is a small woman's size. Emma is 3...it's a bit big for her in the back, but I think still wearable. I like how my hats can be worn by Mom and daughter. If your house is anything like mine the hat is the last to go on and is usually grabbed at the last, hurried second. It's worth it not to have to find a specific hat and just grab whatever is within arms reach.
Those scratches on Emma's face were, no doubt, from she and her big bro wrestling. :) Her Mom and I spent a lot of "crunch time" before Christmas getting all our craft projects done. Emma and Fin were good sports, playing and keeping themselves busy.
