hand knitted baby hats…for warm heads & warm hearts

New hats with a new model!

I don’t have much to say, except that I am blessed to be able to work with such beautiful babies.  And that this beautiful baby is now part of my friend family.   He scared us out of our wits by trying to – and eventually – visiting us 2 months early, but he has grown like crazy and we love seeing his double chin and chunky thighs develop.   Quite a change from that little 3 lb baby that arrived in January.   He’s doing great and we are all so lucky to have him here!   And now I get to use him as a model at the studio and we are going to have so much fun!   He doesn’t know what he’s in for, but he loves his Aunt Kathi.  And I love him, too.   What a doll.

It’s time for something new….hand knitted cotton baby/newborn hats

Change can be a good thing.  As much as I hate to face it sometimes.  I have some big changes coming up, and I’m actually beginning to realize that it’s not going to be as bad as I thought it might be.   Change makes us rethink things.   Embrace new ideas.   Prioritize.   Become more efficient.   And that’s what will happen.   If you don’t have a choice in a situation, you can at least choose how you face the situation.  So, I’m choosing to face it head on and with a positive attitude.   Remind me of that later when I start to panic again, will you?

Anyway, while pondering everything that’s going on, I made a new hat with some awesome yarn that a friend gave to me.  It’s hand dyed from Peru by a non profit organization, Manos del Uruguay, that helps women in need.   Done in large kettles to create a subtle striated effect, the yarn is soft and has lovely shades of soft green and ivory.   Available with or without the pom pon here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/120277033/hand-knit-baby-hat-hand-dyed-yarnDSC00269

I’m also trying to get caught up on etsy and other things on my ‘to do’ list.   Like posting another hat I made a while ago, it’s a larger size of this lavender cutie, which would be good for a 6-12 month baby, with some stretch for growth.   Available here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/114437666/lavender-hand-knit-baby-girl-hat-cotton

So now onto more things on my list.   There’s always something, isn’t there?
