If you've read this blog for a while, you may know that I have a bit of a hat-making habit. Actually, I'm just not very good at anything else. I'm impatient and hats are quick and easy (and a stockpile of baby hats is nice to have when your friends are having new kids left and right.) That picture shows just a few of my most recent pile-o-hats. I think it was the result of those four straight seasons of Eureka on Netflix.
Our friends, Shawn and Elaine, had a new baby girl not too long ago, Amelia (I just love her name.) They will be moving out to the Pacific Northwest this summer so I figured a baby could use some warm things. I also figured she probably has a ton of pink stuff already, so I picked out a cozy fleece outfit in blue and made a hat to match. I adapted a simple pattern, adding a scalloped edge and eye-let row and then realized I already had some polka-dot ribbon that perfectly matched the outfit! Score!
Yes, I like finding joy in the little things. Like little baby things and surprise crochet successes.
