an ear flap hat for Kentucky and a request for some suggestions


IMG_6918 IMG_6921 IMG_6927 IMG_6931

On Monday, Poppa is taking me to Kentucky for 5 days.  While he works, I will have lots of free time and need some suggestions from anyone who is familiar with the Louisville area.  Matthew and I will be loose in Louisville on our own.  If there is anywhere that you think this yarn, antique, fabric etc loving momma should go and see please leave me a comment 🙂  Thank you!

So a trip with my little Matthew on our own necessitated a cute little hat, for him not me 🙂  This little earflap hat used to be my go to for friends who were having a baby.  It is one of those patterns that I thought I would sell in my store (which I closed a few years ago) and then it just stayed in my very big book of patterns. It is a nothing special pattern which has been done a zillion times over by now but still a favorite.  I also never made it for any of my own babies so…. I finally made one for my little guy.  This ear flap hat would fit a 2 or even 4 year old but I like my babies hats to be loose and soft.  So nice to put a hat on him that he doesn’t rip off, maybe its the braids?

Joining Ginny again this week.  Please don’t forget to enter my Cuppow giveaway.  You have until Thursday night midnight to enter when I will pick two lucky winners to each receive a regular size and wide mouth Cuppow mason jar drinking lid.

    Love the color combinations on your hat! I'd also love to try out the pattern if it's available. Your son is so cute! Is that blanket he's sitting on your make too?

    Very cute. Have a great time. I think babies need hats too, even in the summer, or maybe especially in the summer.

    Also would like pattern.

    He is adorable! What a smile!!!!!! I just drove through Kentucky…I didn't stop at any yarn stores, but I did visit the National Park that has Abraham Lincoln's birthplace and childhood home…it's free…you can walk some paths (we did not)..the site is actually two separate places about 10 miles apart (we did not visit the museum)…it's a quick visit and free, if you enjoy historical things….

    Oh my goodness! Matthew is just such a cutie pie! And those LEGS! I'm a sucker for baby legs (I've enjoyed my five babies' legs immensely) all chubby and squishy! I'm also loving your quilt…such pretty colors!
