The replacement

September 25, 2011

Last fall I spent a lovely afternoon photographing the boys in hand-knit hats.  Strangely, that was the last day we saw Tea’s red pointy hat. It disappeared off the face of the earth.

There was a cold morning last week when we needed hats on the walk to school.  Tea was very jealous that Pea had a hand-knit one and begged me to make him another one.  I found a cute pattern and let him pick the yarn.  With the exception of the band of linen-stitch, it knit up very quickly.  I’m happy with how it turned out and would knit this pattern again.  Maybe Pea needs a matching hat in a different color…

Now I just hope we don’t lose this one.

    Oh my word and honor, that last picture is priceless! I really, really like Tea’s new hat. That’s some serious Etsy material there.

      Thanks Jen. If I could charge $87 for the hat I’d make minimum wage. 😉

      Unfortunately, staying home won’t help. Kyle and I are *positive* we lost it the afternoon we *stayed in the backyard*. We could require him to only wear it *in* the house – it *is* that cold here in the winter…
      Let’s do a crafty trade after I get through my current list of knitting projects. One shawl, and 459 baby sweaters. No sweat, right?
