hand knitted baby hats…for warm heads & warm hearts

Twin hats – hand knitted newborn – organic cotton

Well, as my previous post mentioned, there are always a million thought going through my head.   And not all come to fruition, I’m afraid.   But here is one I’ve actually remembered to do!   While thinking of the hats available, and if there was something I could make for twins, like I did for the triplets, I realized this.   I already have a twin set done.   It’s as I told my coworker today – I love it when I have a really great idea, go to implement it, and realized I’d already had that idea.  It means I’m doubly smart, not twice as forgetful.  🙂

The Triplets! Hand knitted baby hats for 3 sweet babies! Organic cotton.

I’m 45.  I admit it.  Halfway to 90.  Like most people my age, I have a teenager.  And my husband and I just celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary.   And though on the surface, it sounds quite ‘normal’, the path here was not as cut and dried as it looks.  Ron is my 2nd husband.  We have a 20 year age difference.  And it wasn’t that easy to conceive our beautiful daughter.

But, this crooked path I took to marriage and parenthood is not nearly as surprising as my good friend T’s.   She married ‘late’ and had a difficult time having a successful pregnancy.  Then, a miracle happened and we were all thrilled when she got pregnant with…. twins!   Yes, I said twins.  Then, as God loves to give our lives little surprises, one of the embryos DSC00062 (3)split – and now you guessed it – triplets.  Triplets!   Three (3!) babies that are just over a month old!   Thank God they were born healthy, and they are growing and gaining weight.  Yay!

So, what is my point, you ask?  T is my age.  45.  Yes, she and her husband are new parents in their mid 40’s.  To triplets!  As you can imagine, they are beyond thrilled to suddenly have the big family they always wanted.  And I’m thrilled, too.  Not that I would want to start over now, mind you, and with 3, no less!  But, I am so happy that they finally can experience the joys of parenthood.   I love asking her about her ‘kids’ and being able to call her a mom.   She deserves this joy after all those years of heartbreak.

I’m shipping these three hats off to the triplets tomorrow.  I don’t know if the babies will ever wear them (it doesn’t get as cold there as it does here), but I wanted her to have them.   Hopefully they’ll grow so fast, that shortly they won’t fit for long!

Organic cotton hand knitted newborn hats – boy – perfect for twins!

As mentioned in the previous post, I have made a couple of versions of  the Chip.   I have 3 available – 1 in winter white, and 2 in this cool blue/green. All organic cotton.  Both the blue/green hats were made from the same skein, so the colors match, but there is a slight variation in how the pattern knitted up.  I really do love these, and love this yarn!  I should make one for myself sometime…when I’m ‘done’ with all my other projects.   See the joke there?  No knitter is ever really done with all of their projects.  🙂

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!

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!)
