Finished Objects

I recently finished new winter hats for Little Ish and Liliana.  Each of them picked out their yarn.  Little Ish I directed toward Madelinetosh DK as I had been wanting to knit something with it and he settled on the Leaf colorway.  It was such a beautiful yarn to work with, and I have plenty leftover that I may make something for the new baby with it.  Liliana had been begging for a blue hat so when Ginny opened her etsy shop for the last time of 2015 and it was filled with beautiful yarns dyed with indigo the choice was easy.  I showed Lily the listing for worsted weight indigo yarn and she was so excited and decided on the spot that it was the perfect yarn for her hat.  Mind you half way through me knitting her hat she said, "Maybe I should have picked pink yarn instead." Four yearold fickleness that disappeared as soon as she put the finished hat on her head.  She has declared it "the softest hat ever" and wears it around inside the house a lot just because she likes it so much.

In reading news, I am currently about halfway through Stuart Brown's Play: How It Shapes the Brain, Opens the Imagination, and Invigorates the Soul.  It isn't what I expected, but I am really enjoying it and am finding a lot of the information useful.

Patterns used:
Windy City Hat (Liliana's)
Cream of Celery Soup Hat (Little Ish's)

Linking up over at Ginny's!


  1. Great hats on super cute kids :-)

  2. The hats look great on the kids. So good when the little ones love it and will wear them. The key is softness!

    1. Softness really is key! Any bit of scratchiness and they resist wearing them.

  3. It looks like the little ones love their hats, and who can blame them they are gorgeous!
