Hat maker hat maker..

What "in" courages us? Creating with our own 2 hands.
I went to visit Heather in Utah for 7 weeks and became a hat maker such as she is. How I adore knitting tiny baby hats!! Recently I had two friends have baby showers for sweet baby girls, and here are two hats I made from the same yarn. I love how they turned out!

Isn't she so sweet?!? Okay, it's my son. I don't have a baby girl :( When I was taking these photos, my husband opened the window and yelled from our room "Don't worry Meg, one day you'll have a baby girl." He better be right. I hope he doesn't mind these are in blog land. Sorry Oliver, but you are pretty adorable.

And speaking of babies, my partner in designing, quilting, crafting, gossiping, Heather had her 5th child, July 23rd. Her ONLY baby boy, Weston.
love you :)

I've become a baby knitter also. Your hats are quite cute.

Nice work! Those turned out really well, especially for your first try. Keep it up!

Oh baby Ollie is an adorable baby girl! Come on, if you have a baby girl with those lips and eyes!!!

The hats are so super sweet too. I still can't believe people have the time to knit hats then give them away.

Super congrats Heather on your son
