New – hand knitted gnome boy hat – super soft!

Another road trip to camp today, so to keep busy, I made this gnome hat from some new yarn I picked up last night.  I wasn’t sure how it would be to work with, and how it would knit up, but I’m happy with the result!   The blues are very vibrant and range from baby blue to a gorgeous royal blue.   The lime green adds a perfect accent!

Twin hats now available! Hand knitted organic cotton.

Well, thanks to a road trip to take the kid to camp, I was able to make 2 “Chip”s.  They’re from the same skein, of course, so they match perfectly and would be great for twin boys.  🙂  

I also was able (sans kid) to find time to finish a larger version of the JT (below).   This is the super softest yarn ever, and is a really lovely color, though technically, I guess you could call this color ‘brown’. 

 

 

 

 

 

I’m excited to be able to find time to knit again!   The kid is gone all week.  Let’s see what I can accomplish!

Busy, busy, busy…

I have started making a point every day to make a list of 5 things that I’m grateful for.  I try to make the list different each day, and make it the first 5 things I think of that day.   Today and yesterday’s lists both included “I sold another hat!”   How exciting!  This is all still getting off the ground, and truthfully, I haven’t had much time for knitting this summer, so I’ve been lucky that all the hats purchased so far were already completed.

So….next week my kid is off to camp and I plan on spending my child-free evenings replenishing stock and making some new options.   Gender neutral is a big one!   And bigger sizes for back to school.   Stay tuned!

Hand knitted baby hats – where to get?

I realize that it’s not easy to see where to purchase my hats.  Although I think I’m pretty computer savvy, I have to be at work, I just couldn’t get my brain around setting up a store website.   So, I decided to use Etsy.  It’s easy to use )for both me and my customers), reliable,  trustworthy and user friendly.

Therefore….if you can’t figure out where my ‘Store’ is – it’s at http://www.etsy.com/punkinhead1  or you can just click the link to the right.   🙂  There you’ll see all the hats available now and can easily make your purchase.  So far the farthest I’ve shipped is Houston.  Where to next?

Thanks for looking (and shopping!)

Organic cotton newborn baby hat, photographic prop

As a photographer, I LOVE working with little babies.  This beauty was asleep, but a little wiggly at first.   Then, after a good feeding, she was zonked!   She is just so precious, I can hardly stand it!

She is wearing the Ruby hat – and I am currently working on getting an image with the hat without the ceramic button.  While I love the button for photography, I’ll be showing the same hat with two knit flowers (1 inside the other).   This is to make this design more suitable for everyday wear (without the choking hazard the ceramic button may cause.)   The organic cotton and texture are light enough for spring and fall wear – and of course, make beautiful portraits!

Hand knitted baby hat, boy, blue and green

I think I’m a yarn junkie.  I walk around the skeins and my mind just starts spinning with what I could do with all that I see.  I found this yarn one day, and love the color combination.  I was just playing around and made this simple hat.    I can always add a pom, if desired!

Pink – hand knitted baby hat – Brooke – pink

This beautiful baby, and isn’t she beautiful, came to see us a couple of weeks ago and she was a joy to work with.  How can you not smile when you see that face?  Many thanks to her mom, J,and my friend Mary, who referred her to us.   So happy to have her as a new client.  We love babies!

She is modeling the Brooke, named after another most beautiful baby girl.   This is quickly becoming my most talked about hat!

Sample Images – Newborn/Baby hats, photography props

After finally launching the site and getting my facebook page and online store set up, everything suddenly came to a halt.  I got sick.  Too sick to move sick.  And I never get that sick.   Thankfully, I’m feeling better and have more energy, so it’s time to get back to it!

The first thing I did when I was able to get vertical again, and back to work, was to get some images ready to post that show my hats ‘in action’.  🙂  I’m so excited to see how they look in portraits!   More to come….

Could it be???

Can it, could it, possibly be that after weeks of knitting, thinking, planning, shopping, I’m finally ready to launch this site?  I have the etsy store all set.  Facebook page is all set.   Now I just have to get to linking them together, promoting them, etc.   Whew!

So, here’s the info we’ve been waiting for….www.etsy.com/shop/punkinhead1  and http://www.facebook.com/punkinheadhats.
Wish me luck!
