a promised hat

What a great memory little children have don’t they?  Do any of you remember this hat I made Matthew?  It was before we moved to Kentuckiana.  Well, back then I promised Livie I would make her a summer hat too.  You know, the kind of hat you can wear when its not cold outside, just for cuteness.

Well, a few days ago, she remembered.  Bad momma (that’s me) never made her one and she asked as I was sitting with nothing to do.  So….I walked into my studio hoping the right yarn would jump out at me and it did!  Right there in my crate shelves was the perfect yarn,  2 wounds balls of the softest grey cotton yarn.  I think it is Blue Sky Organic cotton, its been a while since I purchased it.  I picked up the yarn and it is so soft that I knew it would be perfect.

As you may know if you have been here any amount of time, I don’t use patterns and am so terrible at writing down what I am doing.  I always think I will remember exactly what I did.  This time was no different.  It is just torture to stop myself when I am inspired.  I hate having to write down each and every step so the upside is I get to make something from my head.  The downside is I can’t share what I did.  Someday, I will conquer this.  I already have about 100 patterns I did write down over the past 10 years that I need to finalize and have tested but it is never on the top of my to do list.

This hat took about a night to finish and she loved it the next morning.  Have you made anything lately?

    I love the irises in the picture. Ours in Oklahoma are already done, and I feel like I missed the season.
